GEORGE TOWN: Starwalkers raring to join the most famous walk in Penang, but have yet to sign up, have until Friday (July 19) to get the early bird deal.
Penang Starwalk, on its 42nd year this round, is only RM25 per early bird. The normal fee of RM30 per participant applies from Saturday (July 20) onwards.
Many loyal Starwalkers still prefer the time-honoured walk-in registration style, though the Star Media Group started a purely online registration system this year.
Therefore, starting from Monday (July 22), those who are unable to register online can do so manually at The Star Pitt St in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling or Star Northern Hub in Bayan Lepas from Monday to Friday (9am to 5pm), except public holidays.
Besides a T-shirt, goodie bags and a chance to win amazing prizes, participants who complete the 7km fun walk will receive a certificate of participation each.
The Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas is expected to flag off the event at 7am on Sept 22 at Gurney Paragon Mall.
The closing date for registration is Aug 20, or when 20,000 people have signed up, whichever is earlier.
