PETALING JAYA: Be sure to mark off Aug 9 on your calendar because that’s the day that the city of Kuala Lumpur will be transformed into spectacular “river of lights”.
An estimated 15,000 people, all wearing LED headlights, will be running and lighting up the heart of the city in the Energizer Night Race Malaysia 2014.
The event, entering its fourth edition and making a comeback after a year’s absence, is part of the global Energizer Night Races for a Brighter World in Asia, Europe, South Africa and the Americas.
The previous edition was held at the Sepang International Circuit in 2012.
The race is divided into six categories – 15km men’s and women’s Open (18 years old and above); 15km men’s junior veteran (40-49); 15km men’s senior veteran (50 and above); 15km women’s veteran (40 and above); and 5km fun run (7 and above).
“The race will be flagged off at Dataran Merdeka as both the 5km and 15km routes have been carefully designed for runners to enjoy the breathtaking view of the city’s famous locations – like the National Monument, Parliament, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman and the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad building,” said V. Nithiaseelan, the managing director of organisers Twenty First Century Sport.
The registration fees are RM50 for the 5km fun run and RM60 for the 15km races. The closing date is July 8.
