It's RED! Very auspicious, eh? The run will be happening on 15 Jan 2012. A week before the Chinese New Year weekend. :D
So, it's a good event to train up and get your body fabulous-looking for CNY! Heheh!
We attended the press launch of the event at Mizuno outlet (Lot T225A, 3rd Floor. The Gardens Mid Valley City) just now.
FYI, Mizuno Wave Run was 1st initiated in December 2005 as a fun running event to compliment the many other existing high profile performance running event in the country with an objective to create a healthy lifestyle activity for all.
The 1st event in 2005 was held at Padang Merbuk Kuala Lumpur & attracted about 900+ runners. The following years have seen the event growing with the following participations 900 (2005), 1,300 (2006), 1,900 (2007), 2,800 (2008), 3,800 (2009) and 4,400 (2010). For the year 2012, Mizuno's target is 5,000 runners.
Mr. Glenny J Da Costa - Sales & Marketing Manager as the emcee of the day.
Mr. Joachim Heng - Marcom Manager giving the opening speech.
ALL Finishers in will receive a FINISHERS MEDAL & a FINISHERS CERTIFICATE with their name, timings & position printed on the certificate.
Both Starting & Finishing will be held at Stadium UPM & the entire 10km route will cover most part of the UPM campus site & runners will be running in a chartered route specially catered to give runners enjoyment & safety route.
After the race, light breakfast from the sponsors will be served to participants while waiting for the announcement of the final results of winners.
