Mark your calendar because this is going to be Malaysia’s Largest Night Run Series for 2016. Runners, we can expect three times the fun from the Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run as the popular night run series goes nationwide. In addition to Putrajaya, this run will now also take place in Penang and Johor, making this the largest run series in the country.

Malaysia’s Largest Night Run Series 2016 - Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run

Expected total of 33,000 runners will enjoy the starlit scenery of three of Malaysia’s most exciting and liveliest cities as they challenge themselves over a 5km, 12km or 21km course. Entry fees are set at RM78, RM88 and RM98 respectively for these distances, with a 10% discount for anyone running all three.

Runners who do complete all three runs will also be rewarded with a unique “trifecta” medal - a three-in-one medal that clips together – as a special memento to commemorate the experience and achievement. Each participant will also get an exclusive high quality running shirt, fantastic goodie bag of gifts and cash vouchers at each of the three locations.

Race Date: Penang on 2 April 2016 | Putrajaya on 30 July 2016 | Johor on 7 January 2017

Fees: 5km @ RM78, 12km @ RM88 and 21km @ RM98

The categories for the 12km and 21km races will be Men’s and Women’s Open and Men’s and Women’s Veteran, in addition to the 5km. Each race will have its own colour scheme which will be reflected in the running shirts, medals, and on-site branding: orange for Penang, red for Putrajaya, and blue for Johor.

Registrations for the race is now opened, runners can sign up at www.mens-health.com.my/nightrun or www.womens-health.com.my/nightrun

  1. I think night runs are cool, figuratively and literally. I've worked before with the PR department of Men's Health and Women's Health in the Philippines. We had this Urbanathlon and it was fun!

  3. Sounds like it will be a great race. I'm not sure if I'd be able to do any of those runs though. I'm no fun at running. That's also a lot of runners too.

  7. This is totally exciting as it's like breaking the record and making history. Runners should have their own flashlight and safety kit. :)

  8. As longs as its safe, I'd prefer late night runs over evening runs! Even the pollution kind of settles down over late night, so its better for outdoor activities.

  9. With more and more people adapting and embracing healthier lifestyles, I am positive that this night run series will be a huge success. PLUS, I think it's a lot easier to run a night. Lol. It's not as hot compared to when you run during the day.

  12. What a wonderful initiative to promote men and women's health! I have been wanting to join a fun run or a marathon, but that remains in the bucket list up to now. :P Hope you'll have a great time, if you're running in April! ;)

  13. I think running at night is quite practical since it is less warm. However, at the end of the race you will be so tired and sleepy, it may be difficult to drive home safely.

  17. What's the difference between the Open and Veteran categories? Are there specific guidelines to be qualified to each one?
