Running is said to be the ultimate test of a person's strength and will. To mark International Women's Day this year, the #OnHerTeam run is being organised in March to celebrate and showcase the grit and strength of women.
The run is also aimed at encouraging the public to go out and exercise, safely and adhering to all standard operating procedures during the movement control order, while doing their bit for a good cause: RM10 from each registration will be donated to Yayasan Chow Kit to help women and children who have been adversely affected by the pandemic.
To participate in the #OnHerTeam Run, organised by BurdaLuxury KL, runners have to participate in a team of three. Teams are encouraged to collectively complete a distance of 300km throughout the month of March.
As it is to celebrate International Women's Day (which falls on March 8), teams must have at least one female member in them. All female teams are welcomed but not all male teams!
Runners can choose when and where they run throughout March, submitting each run through run-tracking apps such as Strava or the Nike Running App to Checkpointspot.asia, gradually accumulating their distance.
Upon completion of the #OnHerTeam Run at the end of March, runners will receive a finisher’s tee and a finisher’s medal. A reward will also be given to individuals that achieve a personal record of 100km on their own.
