RUNNERS stand to win cash prizes totalling RM8,800 in the RHB Cen-tennial Run happening on Sept 22.
The 10km-run, which will flag off from the Esplanade in Penang, will see the champions in the men’s and women’s categories each bagging a cash prize of RM1,000.
“The second and third prize in both categories are RM800 and RM700 respectively,” said RHB Bank Berhad group corporate communications head Mahanum Shariff.
There will also be RM500 and RM300 prizes for the fourth and fifth winners in both categories, while the sixth to 10th finishers in both categories will receive a prize of RM100 each.
Mahanum said in the family fun run category, which is a 3km-run, the first to third prizes were RM300, RM200 and RM100 respectively.
“The minimum size in the family fun run category is one adult and one child below 12 years old, and the maximum is two adults and five children under 12 from the same family,” she told a press conference to announce the run recently.
Mahanum added that additional prizes for the best costume in the family fun run category are RM300, RM200 and RM100 for the first to third prizes respectively.
“Families with the most creative costumes featuring RHB Bank’s signature shades of blue and red will be winning these prizes.”
All runners who complete the run within two hours will also receive a finisher’s medal and a certificate of participation.
Mahanum said the run was part of RHB Bank’s 100th anniversary celebrations nationwide and will be open to all Malaysians and permanent residents of the country.
