Press Release: Centro Klang Run 2014 is back with a new event- Centro Tower Run!



Centro Klang Run is back for the 6th consecutive year and this year, runners will be treated to a greater challenge- the Centro Tower Run.

Organized by Centro Mall, the Centro Klang Run will be held on 24 Aug 2014 (Sun) whilst the Centro Tower Run will be held on 23 Aug 2014 (Sat). We will be expecting 4,200 runners on Sunday and 500 runners for Saturday event.

CENTRO KLANG RUN is a half marathon event which consists of 9 categories: Men and Women Open, Veteran and Senior Veteran category; School Boys, School Girls, Fun Run and a Family Fun Run category. Back by popular demand, this has been the 3rd year for Family Fun Run where parent and child runs in pair. Open to runners of all ages; from budding runners at the age of 4 years old till the golden age of 50 years old and above. Runners must also be Malaysian citizens.

The theme of the run is Klang Heritage Trail where runners will run past various historical sites in Klang ie Little India Street, Kampung Kuantan, The Royal Gallery, Klang Railway Station, Istana Alam Shah and Klang Power Station before heading back to Centro Mall.

For the very first time in Klang and probably in Selangor, Centro Mall will organize its very first CENTRO TOWER RUN where runners get the fantastic opportunity to race up the staircase of the Tallest Tower in Klang!



This one of-its-kind race event will challenge runners to run up the Centro Office Tower- starting from the outside of the building before entering the mall to the tower staircase, to run up 567 steps or 90.72 metres to reach the finishing line on 31st floor.

Only participants who finish within the cut-off timing will be able to run to the top where they may take photos at the top for 5 minutes and will be ushered down via the lifts to attend the prize presentation ceremony at the Forecourt on Ground Floor.
This event is open to everyone but will be limited to 500 participants only. We believe this run will be physically demanding for some but it will be a good ground for runners to challenge themselves.

Early-bird registration opens now until 31 May 2014. There will be RM5 discount for runners for sign-up for a category in Centro Klang Run and Centro Tower Run. In conjunction with opening of the new non-halal hawker food court ‘Klang Ho Chiak’ at level 2, we will be offering RM10 free when runners sign-up for Centro Card with their IC and with a min top-up of RM10. This promotion will be extended only to participants of both runs only.
