Running race junkie can now expect three times the fun from the Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run by AIA Vitality as the popular night run series goes nationwide. Besides Putrajaya, the night run will now also take place in Penang and Johor, making this the largest run series in the country.
The Race Director for the Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run by AIA Vitality will be 21st Century, who also directed the night run in 2015. The organizers are expecting a total of 33,000 registered runners for all cities. Entry fees are set at RM78 for 5km, RM88 for 12km, and RM98 for 21km course. If you register for all three races, there will be a 10% discount. The categories for the 12km and 21km races will be Men’s and Women’s Open and Men’s and Women’s Veteran, in addition to the 5km.
The first run will take place on the shores of Penang on 2 April 2016, followed by Putrajaya on 30 July 2016 and Johor on 7 January 2017. Each race will have its own colour scheme, which will be reflected in the running shirts, medals, and on-site branding: orange for Penang, red for Putrajaya, and blue for Johor.
Besides AIA Vitality as the Official Title Sponsor, there is only one sponsor revealed at the press conference and that is Ultron as the Gold Sponsor for the race’s running shirt. Runners entitlement consists of a high quality running shirt, fantastic goodie bag of gifts and cash vouchers at each of the three locations. According to Ultron, all runners will be getting their Super LITE Series shirt.
Runners who do complete all three runs will also be rewarded with a unique “trifecta” medal – a three-in-one medal that clips together – as a special memento to commemorate the experience and achievement.
The flag off for the Penang leg of the run will be at 8.00pm, where the starting point will be at Queensbay Mall in Georgetown, Penang.
