IT’S A RUNNING LIFE & STYLE! FIRST EVER SCORE RUN 2014 PLUS AN EXCITING SERIES FOR 2015
Kuala Lumpur, 9 June 2014 – As a spin-off to SCORE 2014, Malaysia’s biggest and most comprehensive sports, fitness and outdoor recreation exhibition; came the inaugural SCORE Run 2014. Held on 8 June 2014 at Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur, the event flagged off 3,512 runners across two categories of 10km and 15km distance.
The 15km category were first to be flagged off at the crack of dawn, where 1,650 runners kicked off at 6:30am while 1,862 remaining runners followed up in the 10km category at 7:00am. The main running course at Padang Merbok gave runners a picturesque point-of-view of Kuala Lumpur as they breezed through the lush greenery of the inner-roads surrounding exclusive homes, tall trees and the Malaysian House of Parliament. The 15km category runners on the other hand, took the extra challenge as their extended course took them through a fairly steep climb up the Bukit Tunku loop.
Within fifty minutes into the run, the first batch of runners had crossed the finish line for their respective categories. Amidst the challenge, participants were high in excitement and in good spirits by the time they had collected their finisher medals and served with a line of refreshments. To top things off, the event had successfully brought together active Malaysians in support of SCORE’s philosophy of promoting a healthy lifestyle through sports and outdoor recreation. The organisers had hoped to encourage more Malaysians to take up the sport of running as a healthy and enjoyable sporting pursuit.
“Ultimately, in line with our vision ONE PERSON, ONE SPORT, SCORE looks forward to many more exciting sports, fitness and outdoor adventure events to motivate Malaysians to embrace a healthy and spirited lifestyle,” says Patricia Tan, CEO of Mantra Experiential, the organiser of SCORE Run 2014.
The future shines brighter than ever with a host of upcoming activities made specially for running enthusiasts.
