The 1st Sunday Run of 2015 sees good response with not many slots left
Ms Jayne Liew, the Project Leader said ‘Registration started very well with many taking up the early bird offer when registration commenced in August but it slowed a bit during the Hari Raya Adilfitri and Deepavali holidays. However, we are seeing an increased no. of registrations these 2 weeks after the launch of our My First Run Clinic in mid-October. There are not many slots left now and we are certainly happy to observe that many registrants are new runners joining our Run for the 1st time. Another factor could be the year is fast coming to a close and many are signing up to begin 2015 with health on their minds.”
Multi-Purpose Insurans Run (MPIB Run), a community run in its 4th year is the 1st Sunday Run of Year and will be happening on 4 January 2015 at the Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur. It hopes to gather 5,000 new and interested runners to take up running as a healthy recreational activity and to kick-start the year on a healthy note.
Speaker - Juan Du Plessis
My First Run Clinics anchored by MPIB is to help individuals who are now not running to take up running as a sustainable healthy recreational activity. Runners Malaysia is conducting the 2-month programme which commenced on 18th October and will end with a fellowship and trial run on 20 December 2014. All the Clinics are held on Saturday at 7:30 a.m. and on certain Saturdays after the run, invited speakers and among them, Mr. Mark Williams, Standard Chartered KL Marathon Official Running Coach will share running tips, strength training, running gait, correct running shoes, fitness & performance.
MPIB is expecting 5,000 runners for this 4th Run which will again be held at the Padang Merbuk with 6 competitive categories i.e. 4 categories for the 12KM and 2 categories for the 9KM; a stretched distance from 8KM in the previous Run. There will be 2 Fun Run categories of 5KM and a 3 KM walk is being planned for the Runners’ family members who wish to join in. More here
