Win! Passes to IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge



IJM Corporation Berhad and Allianz Malaysia Berhad have jointly announced the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge 2017. Malaysia’s first ever duo highway challenge, organised by Besraya (M) Sdn Bhd, New Pantai Expressway Sdn Bhd, and EC Pixels, is set to pique adrenaline junkies’ interest as the Besraya Highway Challenge offers a 13km challenge run and a 6km run on the 30 July 2017 while the NPE Highway Challenge ups the ante by offering a 21km half marathon challenge and 10km run on the 10 September 2017.

The first run takes place at the new stretch of Besraya Highway (Besraya Eastern Extension – BEE) which is an elevated highway launched in 2014. The total stretch of the highway is 28.3km and offers connectivity between Salak Selatan, Jalan Ampang and Jalan Istana. The run route kicks off from Loke Yew Toll Plaza to Pandan Indah and heads towards Jalan Istana and Salak Selatan before turning back to Loke Yew Toll Plaza. Participants will be enjoying a total closure of the highway during the run.

The second run flags off at KM2.4 of the NPE Highway in front of Sunway Pyramid. This challenge requires a full closure of the highway which has had the experience of four international runs in 2007, 2011, 2012 and 2013 with a total 14,000 participants. This time around, it introduces a longer stretch up to Taman Desa area and involves three districts under the local authorities – DBKL, MBPJ and MPSJ. Runners will be able to run pass through three Toll Plazas – PJS5, Pantai Dalam and PJS2.



Dato’ Soam Heng Choon, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of IJM Corporation Berhad said “We are thrilled to launch Malaysia’s first duo highway challenge where runners will get an opportunity to experience the attributes of both the highways which are under IJM’s Toll Division. We are working with the authorities to ensure a total road closure for the event, as the safety of all runners is key. Participants can run freely and can look forward to enjoying the view of the KL city skyline as they race to complete the challenge.

“Sports is very much at the heart of IJM’s corporate social responsibility initiatives. Beyond being a title sponsor, IJM adopts a hands-on approach by being involved in the entire planning of the run. On top of giving back to the community, we aim to inspire and motivate people to embrace a healthier lifestyle,” he added.

There is an estimated 17,500 participants for the challenge this year and they are expected to complete both highway challenges. Those who come up on top overall will take home the challenge trophy. The participants can also look forward to event t-shirts sponsored by Brooks.

“Allianz is very proud to partner IJM Corporation Berhad and be part of this first-of-its-kind duo highway running event. The whole idea why we readily support running initiatives is to inspire more people to start running, start getting active and taking better care of their well-being. And to find a partner equally as passionate such as IJM, is really a plus point. Together we invite Malaysians from all walks of life to take this opportunity to dare themselves to do something different in their lives. Try, challenge yourself, push the boundaries, and test your limits,” says Sean Wang, Chief Operations Officer of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.

The recent National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) 2015 indicated there is an alarming rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the country. This is largely due to poor lifestyle choices such as unhealthy behaviours regarding food, physical activity, sleep and peace of mind. “By sponsoring an event like this, we are able to give our clients a chance to make better choices and in a fun and exciting way too.”

EC Pixels, which will be organizing the challenge, is an event management company that has over 16 years of experience in organising running and cycling events, triathlons and duathlons locally and internationally. “The IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge 2017 will be an exciting experience for all participants as it gives them two challenges to anticipate. The first challenge certainly builds up their expectation to the next one and having it on a closed highway, albeit smooth road terrain, gives them that much more to look forward to,” says Eugene Chan, Group Managing Director of EC Pixels.

IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge 2017 is also supported by Title Sponsor Allianz Malaysia Berhad, Main Sponsors - Gigatera, F&N 100 Plus, Ice Mountain, Official Apparel Brooks, as well as Partners - IJM Land, Oakley, 2XU Compression, Ideamas Group, RockTape, Affin Hwang, Garmin, Mutu Potensi Sdn Bhd, Nestle Milo, Nestle Fitnesse, Sunway Velocity Mall, Sunway Pyramid Mall, and Celebrity Fitness.

The venue is set a mere 15 kilometres away from the original flag-off point at Dataran Putrajaya and it is specifically selected to minimise any disruption to the travel arrangements of the some 20,000 runners who are expected to sign up.”

Kuala Lumpur, 29 May 2017 –
adidas and Parley for the Oceans announced their first global initiative with the launch of adidas x Parley Run for the Oceans, a global celebration that will take place during World Oceans Day week (June 5th-11th).

adidas, Parley for the Oceans and Runtastic have come together, harnessing the power of sport as a catalyst to inspire positive action, and motivate people to get behind the cause, with each step spreading awareness of the threat plastic pollution poses to the oceans. adidas x Parley Run for the Oceans enables all athletes to unite through running and become part of the clean oceans movement that can make a difference in everyone’s lives, by taking part in a series of inspiring physical, digital and audio runs.

Digital Run:
Everybody can become an ambassador for the oceans and join the global movement by taking part in the digital run. Between June 5th and 11th, runners from around the world will virtually unite to show their commitment to ocean health, one mile at a time. As they run, people can listen to a dedicated Story Run and learn about the ocean’s delicate ecosystem, the Parley AIR strategy and how they can all be part of the solution. Runners can contribute their mileage and help spread the message by registering for the free digital run here.

The threat, into a thread. We have already taken the first steps to reduce and ultimately eliminate virgin and single use plastic from our products. In doing so, we have shown that it is possible, and that people care – but now we must accelerate and scale. As a creator brand, we believe that necessity drives innovation, and that solving the toughest problems only makes us and our products better -- all while doing less harm to the world.

Our efforts won’t stop with product - we want to create a global movement to help save the oceans from the threat of plastic waste. At the heart of our brand is the belief that through sport, we have the power to change lives. With the Run for the Oceans, we’re using this power of sport to inspire action. It is about community and participation in sport – but moreover, we have created a platform that gives athletes all over the world the opportunity to get involved with the cause, helping us to fulfil our promise."

Cosmas Matolo Muteti from Kenya Dethrones Five-time champion Kennedy Kiproo Lilan in Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017




Kuala Lumpur, 21 May 2017 - Close to 36,000 runners converged on Dataran Merdeka to take part in the 9th edition of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon today. Cosmas Matolo Muteti,from Kenya won the Full Marathon Men’s Open category in a time of 2:18:43 to take home USD17,500.



Five-time champion Kennedy Kiproo Lilan from Kenya came in second in the Full Marathon Men’s Open with a time of 2:19:35 while Tonui Kiprop from Kenya finished third in a time of 2:20:36. FM Open winner Cosmas, was delighted that he not only won the title but recorded a personal best while fighting off multiple winner Kennedy. “I was running against strong opponents but I kept to my game plan and really enjoyed the run through some great scenery,” he said.



The Full Marathon Women’s Open category was won by Elizabeth Chepkanan from Kenya in a time of 2:36:14 also earning USD17,500 in the process. Vikoti Chepkemoi from Kenya took second place in a time of 2:40:08 and Zeritu Begashaw Wakijira from Ethiopia had to settle for third place with a time of 2:42:56.



The Full Marathon Malaysian Men’s category saw a close battle between defending champion Muhaizar Mohamad and Leo Tan Huong Leong. These two vastly improved runners were neck to neck until close to the finish when Muhaizar eventually repeated his triumph in last year’s Standard Chartered KL Marathon with an improved time and personal best of 2:35:55. Leo narrowly finished second in a time of 2:38:06 and Ow Yong Jin Kuan came in third in 2:43:45.



The Full Marathon Malaysian Women’s category was clinched by Yuan Yufang in a time of 3:23:00, while Loh Chooi Fern clocked 3:25:55 to come in second and Chua Khit Yeng got third place in a time of 3:33:46



Muhaizar was also thrilled to have retained his title, especially after the tough competition with Leo. “It was a hard race but I’m very happy to have defended my title and even happier to record another personal best at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon,” he said.

Rainer Biemans, Project Director of SCKLM and Director of Dirigo Events, added “We are extremely pleased to have pulled off SCKLM 2017 without any major hiccups and we hope that all our runners had a memorable run and a great experience overall. It is gratifying to receive such support from the local and international running fraternity and we are committed to continually improve on all aspects of this event and look forward to welcoming all of you for our 10th anniversary in 2018.”

Mahendra Gursahani, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Standard Chartered Bank said, “As title sponsor, we are delighted to be able to play a part in empowering people from all walks of life to make a difference through this amazing event. There are inspiring stories everywhere today and this is a testament to the power of the Marathon. Congratulations to all our winners and our sincere appreciation goes out to all participants for their tremendous support.”



This was exemplified by more than 30 visually impaired runners who took part in the 5km Fun Run, along with volunteer “running buddies” from Standard Chartered Bank. 20 autistic children from Permata Kurnia and over 100 underprivileged kids from Sivanandha Home and Care2run also participated in the race across various categories. Standard Chartered KL Marathon’s Run For A Reason charity initiative remains an integral part of the event, channelling funds raised to deserving charities that assist underprivileged communities and those in dire need. This year the participating beneficiaries were the Standard Chartered Foundation, National Cancer Society of Malaysia, Dignity for Children Foundation and Hospis Malaysia.

Efforts to make the Marathon more competitive, like having a seven-hour cut-off time and route checkpoints appear to be paying dividends as more than 8,000 runners signed up for the Full Marathon category this year. There were also close to 1700 running tourists from 52 countries and 75 nationalities taking part making SCKLM a truly international event. SCKLM was also the first stop in Englishman Andy Dukes’ epic marathon ride around the world on his BMW motorbike while running in six marathons in six continents.

SCKLM 2017 Race Day was preceded by the Race Entry Pack Collection from 18-20 May which was a bigger affair this year with the inclusion of the Prudential Healthy Life Expo, as well as the Friendship Run and Pasta breakfast on 20 May which saw Full Marathoners from Malaysia and around the world gather for a warm-up run and mingle in a more social setting.

Apart from the Full and Half Marathons, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017 also featured a 10km distance and a 5km Fun Run for social runners, along with Kids’ Dash categories for children under 12 years of age. There were also several categories like the Corporate Challenge, Media Challenge, Universities Challenge and Ministries Challenge to either raise money for charity as well as provide friendly competition and bragging rights for the eventual winners.

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon has grown to become the premier running event in Malaysia, drawing thousands of local and international runners to the country whilst firmly establishing Malaysia in the global running calendar. The 2017 edition of the race once again saw Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia returning as title sponsor, along with a host of returning and new sponsors, including Honda, Seiko, Brooks, Lucozade and Pacific Regency. The event is owned and organised by Dirigo Events with co-organiser Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur.

Sempoi Charity Fun Walk @ KL Bird Park



Kuala Lumpur, 29 March 2017 – Sempoi Charity announced a fun walk to be held on the 15th of July 2017 today. The fun walk is organised by
Sempoi Charity in collaboration with the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park as coorganizer & venue sponsor and #AboutKL to raise funds for charity. The General Manager of Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau, Encik Khairul Anuar Bin Md. Juri was present at the announcement to lend his support towards the event.

Sempoi Charity Fun Walk @ KL Bird Park is a first of its kind public fundraising event. The walk aims to bring together 2000 participants to the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park in a bid to raise funds for charity whilst creating awareness on the importance of preserving nature, its diverse flora and fauna especially birds and promote a healthy, active and fulfilling lifestyle for city dwellers through a fun walk.

According to President of Sempoi Charity, Mr Mike Manicka, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is an apt venue for the fun walk as it houses a wide species of
birds native to Malaysia in a lush natural setting right in the heart of the city.

In addition, the fun walk also serves as a ready platform for corporate companies to make corporate contributions as part of their CSR initiative. Companies can help raise funds by taking up various sponsorship opportunities available including sponsorship of participation for children from homes and orphanages. In his speech, Mr Mike Manicka, President of Sempoi Charity urged corporate companies and individuals to come forward and support the fun walk to hand in hand raise funds and make a difference for the betterment of the community as a whole.

The objective of the fun walk is predominantly to raise funds for charity. Sempoi Charity hopes to raise enough funds to support three (3) of its
new initiatives this year. Funds raised through the fun walk will be channelled to JKOASM (Jaringan Kampung Orang Asli Malaysia) for their educational outreach programmes. JKOASM is an NGO made out entirely of volunteers working with the Orang Asli community.

Some of their educational outreach programmes includes women’s empowerment workshops, youth leadership workshops and basic computer skills training to help the Orang Asli community to obtain basic skills, knowledge and confidence to be self-sufficient. Funds will also be used to support Sempoi Sahur – a street feeding programme to feed the homeless and destitute living on the streets of Kuala Lumpur during the month of Ramadhan and SC Cares for Kids through a graffiti mural art project at various schools for disabled children.

Sempoi Charity aims to raise RM15,000 to benefit JKOASM, feed and provide toiletry kits for 500 homeless individuals and paint 3 graffiti murals at schools for disabled children. Sempoi Charity also announced its partner and sponsors who have pledged their support for the fun walk thus far which includes the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park as venue sponsor, #AboutKL as event partner, WABS as sponsorship partner, CIME as creative agency, Gaya Travel as magazine partner, KPJ as medical partner and Ice Mountain & 100 Plus as official drink partner. Other supporting partners for the event are Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau (KLTB), TwentyFirst Century Sport and TL Impressions who have made contributions in both cash and kind.

Sempoi Charity Fun Walk@KL Bird Park is divided into two (2) categories - Adult for individuals aged 18 years old & above and Family, comprising of 1 Adult and 1 child aged between 5 to 17 years old.

Registration fee for the Adult category is at RM80 and Family category is at RM150. Finishers will receive a medal and goody bag. Registrations to participate will be open from 31st March 2017 onwards via our online registration partner at http://www.twentyfirstcenturysports.com/event/sempoi-charity-fun-walk/

Splashing Outdoor Fun at the Sunway Lagoon’s Aqua Run



Bandar Sunway, 25 April 2017 – More than 1,000 runners of all ages and backgrounds made their way to Sunway Lagoon for the inaugural AQUA Run – a “fun run” featuring six exhilarating fun zones!

The AQUA Run was aimed at encouraging more Malaysians to venture outdoors and experience a fun and exciting day of activity together with their friends and families, in line with Sunway Lagoon’s reputation as a one-stop fun destination in creating memorable moments.



The morning kicked-off with a quick 15-minute warm-up session, after which the runners took their positions at the starting line, where they were greeted with a “cold shower” just as the race began!

It was certainly a day filled with plenty of thrills and spills as the runners made their way across some of the park’s most iconic attractions, including the Malaysia’s Largest Man-made Sandy Surf Beach.



At each of the six designated fun zones, the runners encountered unexpected surprises and interesting challenges, such as the Splash Attack where runners brazed through pulsating rotating sprinklers and keeping their balance while avoiding the spongy holes at the Puddles Mattress.



Runners put their climbing skills to test while they try to reach the peak of the Climb & Slide and squeeze their way through the Wall Diving. Finally, the runners arrived at the Water Disco Hut near the Malicove Pool, where they were thoroughly washed and rinsed amidst colourful lights and music, before racing towards the finish line.



“Sunway Lagoon is known for being a one-stop fun destination, and we continuously strive to create memorable moments for everyone. Our visitors spend a lot of time at our water attractions, and we thought how great it would be to hold our very first AQUA Run where participants can experience our park in a different and unique way. I’m really happy to see such an encouraging turnout at this event,” commented Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.



Before proceeding for a fun-filled time at the remainder of the park, all runners proudly took home medals for their outstanding efforts. The day came to a close with a Bubble Music Celebration, a bubble-filled concert at the Surf Beach’s Giant Canopy, where participants were able to let their hair down and dance the evening away.

Top Malaysian Marathoners Competing for Title and Potential Spot at the SEA Games



KUALA LUMPUR, April 2017: The Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) 2017 is gearing up to be a highly competitive race, particularly in the Malaysian Men’s category, as the top Malaysian marathon runners will be competing for honours as well as hoping to catch the attention of the selectors of the KL SEA Games squad.

Muhaizar Mohamad & Leo Tan

Last year’s Full Marathon winner in the Malaysian category was Muhaizar Mohamad with a time of 2:39:24, followed by Mohd Jironi Riduan in second place with a time of 2:39:56 and Tan Huong Leong in third recording a time of 2:41:53. Not only are all three runners back for SCKLM 2017, but their contest will be given an added edge because of the SEA Games in KL later this year. Tan in particular, has been recording really fast times recently with a 2:35:24 at the Taipei Marathon in December and 2:28:19 in the recently concluded Tokyo Marathon, which is one of the fastest times recorded by a Malaysian for the full marathon.

“We are really looking forward to a hotly contested SCKLM 2017, especially in the Malaysian Men’s Full Marathon Category,” said Rainer Biemans, Director of Dirigo Events and Project Director of SCKLM 2017. “This augurs well for our event as one of our key objectives has been to raise the competitive level of the SCKLM. And as the selection for the SEA Games is only finalised in July, these runners will be eager to push hard to try to earn selection,” he added.

Defending Malaysian Men’s champion Muhaizar Mohamad knows that SCKLM 2017 is potentially his best bet to get into the national team for the KL SEA Games 2017. Muhaizar has dominated the Malaysian Men’s category for the Full Marathon the last couple of years. The Armed Forces personnel largely trains on his own but a short stint under Mark Williams, the Official Running Coach that runs SCKLM’s Running Clinics, enabled him to achieve his personal best at last year’s SCKLM. “I don’t have a personal coach so it’s going to be tough for me to post faster times. I realised how much a coach could help me when I trained under Mark Williams. The plan he devised is what helped me to achieve my fastest time so far at last year’s SCKLM,” said Muhaizar. “But as the SEA Games is on home soil this year, I will be going all out in SCKLM 2017 to hopefully beat my personal best and qualify for the Games,” he added.

Jironi

Jironi, on the other hand needs to better his personal best considerably if he wants to make the cut. His personal best of 2’39:58 is currently well outside the national qualifying mark of 2’35:04 for the SEA Games but the school coach is determined to beat his personal best at SCKLM 2017. “I know my timing is still below the qualifying mark but I am focused on delivering a better time at SCKLM 2017 and hopefully that puts me in contention for a SEA Games race slot,” said Jironi.

Leo Tan



Tan, 29, could be the man to watch as his current personal best is well within the qualifying mark. He has been training in Taiwan, where he works as an engineer, under professional Taiwanese distance running coach Lim Chen Ming for the last two years and the results are beginning to speak for themselves. His timing at the last Standard Chartered KL Marathon has been shaved by almost 13 minutes albeit in much more temperate conditions in Tokyo compared to Kuala Lumpur. It will certainly be interesting to see how fast he can go in the sweltering conditions here.

“I’m really looking forward to SKLM 2017. While I’m not setting any particular goals for this event, I still want to do my best for this run and hopefully my name is in the list for the SEA Games come July,” said Tan.



Another Malaysian to look out for in SCKLM 2017 is the current national record holder of the Half Marathon Malaysian Women’s category Sheela Samivellu. Sheela smashed her own previous record at SCKLM 2016 and will be gunning to clinch a spot in the SEA Games through a strong showing in this year’s SCKLM. The Principal Assistant Director with the Ministry of Well-Being, Housing and Local Government started running from an early age and has participated in the SEA Games several times before. “I started running when I was five and the journey continues. What started as a means to be happy and to reduce stress has become something more serious now. Breaking the national record at SCKLM2016 was the proudest moment in my career so far and I hope I can finish just as strongly this year as that would put me in a good position for the SEA Games in August,” said Sheela.

Sheela Samivellu

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon has grown to become the premier running event in Malaysia that draws thousands of local and international runners to the country whilst firmly establishing Malaysia in the global running calendar. The 2017 edition of the race will once again see sponsorship from Title Sponsor Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia, along with Honda Malaysia, Brooks, Lucozade, Seiko and Pacific Regency.

Elite runners will be competing to earn a slice of the almost RM500,000 in total that is on offer at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017,which include bonus prizes for record-breaking course times.

Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon Makes "World Marathon Majors" Bid



Singapore, 27 April 2017
– The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM) today announced its bid to join six of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world - London, Berlin, New York, Chicago, Tokyo and Boston - as an Abbott World Marathon Majors (WMM) event. Currently, the Singapore marathon has been recognised as a Gold Label event by the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) since 2012 for its world-class excellence in global sporting significance, organisational quality, athletes’ safety and compliance with the IAAF Rules and Regulations.

A 10-year partnership between event organiser IRONMAN Asia and WMM to expand the current race calendar from six to nine cities with additions in regions such as Asia, Africa and the Middle East has made it possible for Singapore’s marquee running event to bid for the opportunity.

Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu, who was the Guest-of-Honour for the SCSM 2017 launch event said, “The SCSM is a good example of the power of sport in bringing people together. Since 2002, the annual event has drawn together friends, family members and companies as a community, united in their common passion for running and keeping fit. I would like to thank title sponsor, Standard Chartered Bank and the other partners for developing and supporting our Singapore race over the years. I look forward to the SCSM becoming a part of the international league of marathon majors.

Commenting on the bid, Managing Director of IRONMAN Asia, Geoff Meyer said “The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon is perfectly placed to be a World Marathon Major. Since 2011, the race has been one of the most popular in the region, attracting an annual average of 50,000 runners. With the support of our IRONMAN global network and our longstanding commitment to the Singapore Marathon, I am confident that we can bring the event to greater heights and develop Singapore as a premier running destination. Stay tuned as we will be rolling out our roadmap and vision for the future of the race in the coming months.”

In support of this bid, long-standing sponsor Standard Chartered Bank has announced a renewed sponsorship through to 2019. The S$11.4m in funding over the next three years is a significant boost to Singapore’s growing running community. The race has also been renamed as the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), to align with other WMM events globally.

“Standard Chartered Bank has been sponsoring the marathon since 2002. We have witnessed how the event has shaped the popularity of running as a sport, and as a platform for building community cohesion in Singapore. We are very proud to support SCSM’s bid to be part of the prestigious WMM series,” said Judy Hsu, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank Singapore.

Enhanced Experience: Pre-race
Runners can expect an enhanced experience which begins well before the race weekend on 2-3 December. Upon registration, runners will receive a race pack worth over $180, which includes new items such as an upgraded backpack and free race day personal accident plan. For the first time, participants will be decked out with event and finisher tees by new race apparel sponsor Under Armour.

From this year till 2019, SCSM Race Entry Pack Collection will be held within the city centre at Marina Bay Sands. This is part of the organiser’s aim to offer SCSM runners a bigger and better race expo with the return of Prudential Healthy Life Expo for the second year, while facilitating convenient and seamless pick-up of race packs.

Enhanced Experience: Race
Come race day, runners can also look forward to numerous new experiences, including new race routes, the cold towel experience upon crossing the Finish Line, and a free digital personal race photo that they can share on social media. Runners in the Full and Half-Marathon categories will enjoy a completely new route that will take them through some of Singapore’s most iconic heritage locations.

In the 10km race, runners can expect to see more of the city skyline than ever before as they blaze their way through the central business district during daybreak.

En route, there will also be a number of improvements with the introduction of new features like mist tunnels, cooling zones, additional and longer hydration points and more entertainment along the route for a better running experience.

Rewarding Runners
As the marathon enters its 16th edition, IRONMAN Asia will introduce a loyalty program that will reward loyal runners. Participants who have clocked more than 300 KM since the 2010 Singapore Marathon will receive a customised running tee-shirt and a collector 300km club coin.

Come July, SCSM will unveil runners’ programmes that will help SCSM participants to prepare them for the best race yet.

Registration for the SCSM 2017 starts on 27 April 2017 at www.singaporemarathon.com. Standard Chartered Cardholders will enjoy 15% off registration fee across all categories.
