THE closing date for Larian Sukan SEA Kuala Lumpur 2017, a public run aimed at hyping up the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games 2017, has been extended to 25 July 2017.
The organisers are extending the closing date of the run from 30th June 2017 to allow participants and running enthusiasts who had just returned after long breaks and holidays to join the Games celebration.
Malaysia Organising Committee (MASOC) Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Seri Zolkples Embong said in a statement, participants stand to win attractive lucky draw prizes during the run including one flight ticket with accommodation to Gold Coast Australia.
Larian Sukan SEA 2017 is organised by MASOC, the Olympic Council Malaysia (OCM) and the Malaysia Athletics Federation (MAF).
Dato Seri Zolkples said: “On the advise of the police and Perbadanan Putrajaya, we have to change the route of the 15km run to avoid traffic and congestion areas in Putrajaya.”
The run is open to public and aimed at creating awareness and hyping the Games, which Malaysia is hosting after a lapse of 10 years.
“The 15km course is now set on a scenic and shady route with less traffic in the first 10km,” said Dato’ Seri Zolkples.
The run starts at Perbadanan Putrajaya with two categories to be flagged off — the 15km men and women’s Open category which starts off at 7.00am and the 5km fun run which will be flagged off at 7.30 am.
