McDonald's once again team up with Olympic Council of Malaysia to bring active Malaysians the annual Olympic Day Run this coming Sunday at Dataran Merdeka.
For those who had signed up, these gorgeous limited medals are up for grab! :)
The official running tees designs are quite similar to last year's, except for the four runner silhouettes in white on the back of the T-shirt.
We think this got something to do with running as a family. There is a special category for family for 2 adults and up to 3 children aged 7-14 years, where one child must be aged 12 years and below.
The cotton tees are available in four block colours. Take your pick!
Yup! This is the famous mantra - It's what I eat and what I do.
To be fully immersed in the event, the company has also encouraged its crew and staff to participate in this fun activity with friends and family and this year there will be around 100 enthusiastic staff and crew participation.
We met two of the McDonald's staff - Nurul Yakin (3rd from R) and Saiffudin (5th from R) earlier this morning to talk about their participation in the fun run. Both of them will be taking part in the 10km categories and they are not new to fun run like this.
According to Crew Trainer, Nurul Yakin, the main reason for her to take part in the run is to keep a healthy lifestyle.
Saiffudin is actually a "runner" in the McDonald Restaurant. He is the one who runs around behind the counter, picking your orders. This Sunday he will be a different kind of runner! Like Nurul Yakin, he too runs for fitness.
We would like to wish everyone a fun and fantastic run!
FYI, the entry has been closed when the target of 15,000 runners were achieved.

Larian Jom! Kitar Semula2013 was held for the third year and organised by Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing (PPSPPA) to promote and create awareness on recycling.
The event held simultaneously across 9 states in Peninsular Malaysia (except Penang, Perak & Selangor), managed to attract over 40,000 runners (this figure is quoted from the official press release)
This run differs from other road races because participants were requested to bring in various recyclable items like newspaper, aluminium can, Tetrapak dan plastic bottles to gain entry to the race
It's a family affair! The 3.5km distance is perfect for family run. Not too far for the kids and too strenuous grandpas or grandmas. So everyone could take part.
We believe the recycling habit should be instilled into the young ones. Larian Kitar Semula is a good initiative. We hope more educational and fun activities will be organised for the kids in conjunction of the run.
There were no prizes for the top runners but instead tones of lucky draw prizes in the form of electrical goods and bicycles were given away to lucky runners.
However, they have to stay and sit through a speech first by the minister.... (which is well worth it!)
According to Dato' Abdul Rahman Dahlan, the Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, a good way to memorize Perbadanan Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal dan Pengurusan Awam, PPSPPA, is by remembering it as “Pipi Saya, Pipi Awak”. LOL!
FBI or Faizal Ismail, one of the country's top radio DJ brings lots of laughter to the event with his witty wisecracks.
Congrats to all the lucky draw winners! The grand draw prize was a BSN Premium Savings Certificate worth RM5,000!
