MPIB RUN 2015 - Postponed to 11 January 2015

MPIB RUN 2015 has been postponed to 11 January 2015

Kuala Lumpur, 3 December 2014 – Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd (“MPIB”) wishes to inform the postponement of its Race to 11 January 2015 from 4 January 2015 as originally scheduled. However, the venue will remain the same at the Padang Merbuk.

Project Leader Ms. Jayne Liew comments, ‘We would very much like to continue to be known as the 1st Sunday Run of the Year but due to its being held on the same morning as the “1st Sunday Kuala Lumpur Car Free Morning” of the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (“DBKL”), we have been requested to postpone our Race in support of this environmentally inspired campaign.’

MPIB Run shares DBKL’s aspiration in promoting a greener city, reduce global warming and to add to it a car-free morning to promote community bonding. In the process, it will make Kuala Lumpur a better city with space for walking, running, biking and in general more healthy outdoor activities, at least for the 1st Sunday morning of the month. MPIB extends its sincere apologies for causing any inconvenience and seeks understanding for the postponement. Should any registered Runner decide to opt out due to other commitments on 11 January 2015, arrangements are in place with My Race Online to make the necessary refunds by contacting or calling +603-7491 0505 (Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.).

Runners running with coupon codes but unable to make it for the new Race date are advised to contact Natalie at or +603-2034 9888 Ext: 7807.

The withdrawal period for both registered runners and runners with coupon codes is 5 working days (between 4 December 2014 and 10 December 2014 by 5 p.m.). 

The Race Entry Pack Collection details for city folks will take place as planned on 27 and 28 December 2014. However, the collection for outstation runners will only be held on 10 January 2015 instead of 3 January 2015. 

Despite this setback, MPIB looks forward to organising another successful community run for all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels. To be held again at the Padang Merbuk, the 4th MPIB Run will have 6 competitive categories, namely 3 categories each for the 12KM and 9KM (a new challenge for those who participated in the 8KM distance of the previous Run). There will also be 2 Fun Run categories of 5KM, while runners’ family members and friends who prefer something “lighter” can opt to join the 3KM walk.

The run’s Organising Committee encourages the public to make regular visits to the MPIB Run official website at or its Facebook page for the latest updates.
