Multi-Purpose Insurans 2014 Run prepares 1st time and seasoned runners
for the 5th January 2014 Race
Runners Malaysian took the runners through 4.6 km of the actual route for the Race Day on 5th January 2014. Many were there to familiarise themselves with the route and to pick up some tips on basic fitness as well as sharing the benefits of taking up running as a sustainable healthy recreational activity. Participants enjoyed a healthy run in the fresh morning air as well as received a complimentary “My First Run Clinic” vest.
The concept of My First Run Clinic is to help individuals who are now not running to take up running as a sustainable healthy recreational activity. Runners Malaysia will be conducting the 2 months programme commencing on 19 October and ending with a fellowship and trial run on 21 December 2013. All the Clinics will be held on Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. and on certain Saturdays after the run, invited speakers and among them, Mr. Mark Williams, Standard Chartered KL Marathon Head Coach will share running tips, strength training, correct running shoes, fitness & performance.
The theme, “Healthy Lifestyle – Work Life Balance” has been maintained to continue to encourage 1st time and seasoned runners to kick start the new year with living a healthy lifestyle as their new year resolution.
This 3rd run will again be held at the Padang Merbuk with 8 competitive categories i.e. 4 categories each for the 12KM and 8KM and 2 Fun Run categories of 5KM. A 3 KM walk is being planned for the Runners’ family members who wish to join in.
MPIB Run is again made possible by main sponsors; Alliance Bank Malaysia Berhad and New Balance as well as a host of co-sponsors. More details here
