Kuala Lumpur, 21st October 2013 – An enthusiastic crowd of beginners and seasoned runners gathered at the Padang Merbuk Car Park as early as 7 a.m. on Saturday, 19th October 2013 to join the 1st “My First Run Clinic” anchored by Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd, the event organizer for MPIB Run 2014.
Runners Malaysia took the runners through 4.6 km of the actual route for the Race Day on 5th January 2014. Many were there to familiarise themselves with the route and to pick up some tips on basic fitness as well as sharing the benefits of taking up running as a sustainable healthy recreational activity. Participants enjoyed a healthy run in the fresh morning air as well as received a complimentary “My First Run Clinic” vest.
The concept of My First Run Clinic is to help individuals who are now not running to take up running as a sustainable healthy recreational activity. Runners Malaysia will be conducting the 2 months programme commencing on 19 October and ending with a fellowship and trial run on 21 December 2013. All the Clinics will be held on Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. and on certain Saturdays after the run, invited speakers and among them, Mr. Mark Williams, Standard Chartered KL Marathon Head Coach will share running tips, strength training, correct running shoes, fitness & performance.
MPIB Run 2014 is expecting 5,000 runners which reflect a 33% growth from its 3,750 runners at its inaugural run in 2012.
The theme, “Healthy Lifestyle – Work Life Balance” has been maintained to continue to encourage 1st time and seasoned runners to kick start the new year with living a healthy lifestyle as their new year resolution.
This 3rd run will again be held at the Padang Merbuk with 8 competitive categories i.e. 4 categories each for the 12KM and 8KM and 2 Fun Run categories of 5KM. A 3 KM walk is being planned for the Runners’ family members who wish to join in.
