The Music Run returns to KL Sports City with CIMB as presenting partner. The Music Run by CIMB will take place on 23 November 2019.
Dubbed ‘Asia’s fittest party’, The Music Run by CIMB connects urbanites with two of the world’s favourite pastimes – music and running. Combining these two elements, the event takes the form of a 5-kilometre (5K) and 10-kilometre (10K) running race with more than 100 speakers lining the entire Sound Track circuit, culminating in what is regarded as the world’s best finish line party. With a giant stage showcasing local bands, top DJs and the renowned Live The Beat show, this high-octane event provides a one-of-a-kind, safe, healthy and enjoyable experience for all participants. An important facet of this year’s event is the push towards sustainability and eco-awareness, making Asia’s fittest party arguably also the most eco-friendly!
“There’s certainly a lot to look forward to in 2019 as we introduce more elements to make The Music Run by CIMB bigger, faster and better, whilst at the same time making a concerted effort to lead the industry in event sustainability practices. Besides the already unique nature of The Music Run by CIMB, we’re taking an active stance to reduce single-use plastic usage, are endeavouring to be Malaysia’s first carbon-neutral mass-participation event and will be implementing industry-leading recycling and waste management programme,” says Sam Middlehurst, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Music Run.
The Music Run by CIMB originated in Malaysia and held its inaugural run in Kuala Lumpur in 2014 to a crowd of 6,000 and has since been experienced by more than 250,000 participants across 35 events in 13 countries. Last year’s event saw a sell-out crowd of 20,000 participants pack the National Stadium at KL Sports City. With exciting changes fuelled by the partnership with CIMB, this year’s event is poised to be another sell-out and the biggest and best yet.
