Run, KL-ites, Run!
Nike Malaysia recently kicked off registration for the inaugural Nike City 10K Kuala Lumpur, a unique celebration of sport that will see young runners racing through the streets of Kuala Lumpur in their bid to be crowned champions of the city. The Nike City 10K will be hosted by 22 countries across the globe, with Malaysia and Singapore carrying the banner for Southeast Asia.
Race registrants can opt for a 5km or 10km route when signing up for race, which will take them around the heart of the city.
In addition to the physical race, both cities will be pitting their runners in an inter-city race that will see Malaysian runners lace up against their Singaporean counterparts to clock kilometers for their city now till Oct 31 using the Nike+ Sportband.
The intense rivalry between both cities will serve to spur Malaysian runners to commit their kilometres for national pride and for the chance to win US$30,000 for local charity Hope Malaysia whilst Singapore will run for the Singapore Children's Society.
The physical race will take place in both cities next month of October. The Nike City 10K flags off in Kuala Lumpur on Oct 10 and Singapore's race is slated for Oct 24.
Registration for the Nike City 10K is currently open and runners can sign up for either the Open category (Men / Women) or Under 25 category (Men / Women). Young runners can also sign up for the School category, which is open to students from secondary schools, colleges and universities.
The registration fee is RM10 (for runners 24 years and below) and RM50 (for runners 25 years and above) and this includes a Nike City 10K race t-shirt with a pre-printed number bib and a finisher's award for all participants who complete the race.
Race registrants who sign up for the Nike City 10K will enjoy a 50 per cent discount on the Nike+ SportBand and this enables them to take part in the inter-city Kuala Lumpur vs Singapore online challenge on www.nikerunning.com.my.
