Centro Klang Run 2016 is back with new Klang Heritage Trail
On Sunday 21 August 2016, Centro Mall will be organizing its 8th Centro Klang Run and the 3rd Centro Tower Run. This year, the Centro Klang Run runners will take on a new challenge to run through a new Klang Heritage Trail running through the oldest part of Klang town.

b) Centro Tower Run where runners run up 567 steps to reach Centro Tower, the tallest tower in Klang
c) Centro Corporate Charity Relay Tower Run which is open to companies only. All registration fees collected from this category will be donated to single mother’s home Pertubuhan Ibu Tunggal Semarak Kasih Selangor.
will be held on 21 Aug 2016 and this year, runners will run through fascinating streets of Klang’s Little India, old colonial government buildings, Sultan’s palace, the royal gallery, old clubhouse, places of worship, an old fire-station, a former tin warehouse plus the very first Bak Kut Teh shop in Klang (a famous Klang delicacy amongst Klang’s Chinese) and a popular kopitiam in Klang. This Trail is similar to the guided tour of the ROYAL KLANG TOWN HERITAGE WALK, a weekly initiative by Tourism Selangor.
The Centro Klang Run consists of 9 categories: Men and Women Open, Veteran and Senior Veteran category; School Boys, School Girls, Fun Run and a Family Fun Run.

This year marks the 3rd year of the Tower Run where runners will run 1.7km on the road before running up 567 steps or 90.72 metres to reach the finishing line at the Penthouse on the 31st floor of Centro Office Tower to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Klang.
The Corporate Charity Relay Tower Run is category for companies who would like to register their employees (4 in a team) to run a relay race up the Centro Tower. Registration fees collected from this category will be donated to single mother’s home Pertubuhan Ibu Tunggal Semarak Kasih Selangor. Last year, RM11,000.00 was collected and donated to the Home.
