THE Coway Run returns for its third consecutive year on June 30 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.

Themed Wind and Water,

Back and Better, the much-anticipated running event has achieved more than 100% of its 6,000-participant goal in less than a month since its registration went live in March.

“We are inspired by the encouraging response for Coway Run 2019 which shows the fruition of our efforts in the last two years.

“We are happy to be a part of the lives of Malaysians in inspiring them to join in our mission to not only drink clean and pure water, but to also engage in activities such as running which contributes to healthy living,” said Coway Malaysia managing director Kyle Choi.

Coway Malaysia communications head and marketing director Ryan Jung added that the number of registrations to-date is about 7,000 and still growing.

“The limit will be approximately 8,000 before we close the registration,” he said.

This year, participants can expect to sprint through a mist tunnel, feel the breeze of the wind vortex and the coolness from the water zones as well as dash through the foam ocean.

“Those participating can look forward to enhanced obstacles along the route as well as for Korean-inspired activities this round, compared to last year.

“We see this event as not just a professional and fun run but also a full-day family activity for participants to enjoy,” added Jung.

Additionally, participants can indulge in delectable delicacies from various food trucks while taking part in family-friendly traditional Korean activities such as Fly High Shoes and Flip it at the Korean Village near the run route.

“At Coway, we stalwartly

foster inclusivity and believe that everyone deserves to live pure without exemption thus the Coway Run is an apt platform to unite all on equal ground to do so,” said Choi.

A continuous effort from last year, Coway Run 2019 will channel RM10 from every registration to Coway’s annual corporate social responsibility initiative, Happy Water Project.

Proceeds will be used to provide the indigenous community access to clean and pure water by fabricating devices to filter water within their villages.

Participants can choose the 5km or 10km events for both men and women for the Open (ages 16 and above), International (ages 16 and above) and Veteran (ages 40 and above) categories.
