Wooz! I completed my Energizer Night Race 2014 last Saturday night (9th Aug) at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur. I thought that evening will rain but thanks God, the weather was good throughout the whole race errr bit warm though. A “River of Lights” with 15,000 running for the cause to brighten the lives of Orang Asli, so far this was Malaysia’s Largest Night Race.

There was also the breathtaking vista of Kuala Lumpur at night which was the background as the runners took on the route turning the streets of Kuala Lumpur into a “River of Lights”.

Energizer Night Race 2014 Results & Timing

Dataran Merdeka was transformed into a carnival area featuring exhibits from Energizer, sponsors and their CSR collaboration partner, EPIC Homes. The carnival area also hosted the “Light UpThe Dark” initiative which will see Energizer building homes for the Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia and successfully raised about RM200,000 toward the cause. The initiative gained further momentum with runners, supporters and visitors making contributions in cash and in kind at the Energizer Night Race site.

The funds would be further raised from Energizer sale proceeds at all AEON & AEON BIG retail stores, GIANT stores, TESCO Stores and MYDIN stores from 1st August until 30th September 2014. For every pack of the Energizer Batteries, Lightings & Specialty products sold, RM 0.20 from the sales will go towards the initiative.

Overall, it was a good experience the race co-ordination and arrangements were better than the previous round. Perhaps the snack pack handling side could be more organize. I had a good time running with friends and it was an enjoyable event especially we have fireworks before the race begin. Thumbs up to Energizer Malaysia and the organizing team.
