Participants at last year

THE Race Walkers’ Association of Malaysia (RWAM) is set to host its second community walk this year.

The organisers of the long-running 12-hour international walk since 2002 opted to host a 5km walk to inspire and motivate people from all walks of life towards better physical and mental well-being.

Held in collaboration with Kajang Municipal Council and with MKH Bhd returning as the main sponsor, the MKH Walk will be held in Kajang 2, Selangor on Dec 16.

The race, which is open to all, will have Open and Veteran categories for men and women, along with Under-18 and Under-12 categories for boys and girls, while groups of three can participate in the Family Fun Walk team category.

“We believe this is a great event for people of all races as it promotes unity and harmony on top of creating awareness of active and healthy living through this low impact form of exercise,” said RWAM deputy president Khoo Chong Beng.

Khoo said the continuous support of MKH Bhd, Kajang Municipal Council and Kajang district police made the event possible.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, creating a sustainable community has always been the core of our social responsibility efforts, and we are grateful for the opportunity to work hand in hand with RWAM and Kajang Municipal Council once again in progressing towards this shared goal through race walking,” said MKH Bhd group managing director Tan Sri Eddy Chen.

In conjunction with the walk, MKH Bhd’s Kajang 2 sales gallery will also have an open day over the weekend, offering food, fun-filled games and activities.

Registered participants of the event will receive a T-shirt and a goodie bag before the race. 

All participants who complete the walk will be given a finisher medal, an e-certificate, as well as a chance to win attractive lucky draw prizes such as the latest Samsung Note 9 and Samsung Gear Spot, among others.For details, visit
