Kuala Lumpur, 29 December 2014 - As we usher in the new year of 2015, Sports Toto Malaysia Sdn Bhd is proud to present the Sports Toto-FTKLAA Cross Country 2015 to all running enthusiasts.
Running events have become the first choice for Malaysians in maintaining a healthy lifestyle as more and more of them enjoy jogging and running as their favourite past time.
As part of the Company’s effort in promoting a healthy lifestyle, Sports Toto has decided to exclusively sponsor a running event to provide an additional platform for the running enthusiasts.
“We are targeting to have 3,000 runners taking part in the race and we are glad to have the Federal Territory Amateur Athletic Assocation (FTKLAA), a body which specializes in organizing running events, to help in holding our first running event.
“We notice that running events are very popular nowadays and there is almost one running event on every weekend. Hence we want to do something different and we have decided to hold a cross country instead of an ordinary running event, which we believe will be more challenging and interesting to the runners,” said Sports Toto Communications Manager Giam Say Khoon.
Sports Toto has been an active sponsor and supporting partner of many sporting events which include the KL-Maran Big Walk, Kenny Rogers Chicken Run, Seremban Half Marathon, MBPJ Squash Open Championship, Penang Bridge International Marathon and Run for Your Lives Malaysia etc.
The Sports Toto-FTKLAA Cross Country 2015 will be held on Sunday, 25 January 2015 at Padang Merbok in Kuala Lumpur. The event is divided into the 10km, 6km and 2.5km categories for running enthusiasts from 9 years old and above.
Cash prizes totaling RM11,950 are also ready to be won by the top 5 finishers in each category.
Runners are advised to register early due to limited places. The closing date for registration is 15 January 2015. For more information and online registration, kindly visit https://1xcess.com/registration/event/crosscountry2015 or http://www.myraceonline.com.
