PUMA Malaysia recently had its third instalment of the annual PUMA Night Run Malaysia 2016, the largest night run in Malaysia to date and also the year’s biggest PUMA Night Run in the whole of Southeast Asia. A record breaking of a total of 10,000 runners took over the streets of Shah Alam.
The run was set at just 10 KM only, with the route leading runners running along the streets of Shah Alam city, housing areas and past iconic monuments such as the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz mosque, the second largest mosque in Southeast Asia. The route was intentionally designed to bring out the best in the participants by incorporating both straight terrain interspersed with hilly stretches
Most runners arrived early to prep themselves before the night run flag off. Some were at the race villa as early as 5 pm to take part in the many activities organised at the PUMA Village. One of the most popular attractions was the PUMA Red Wall, a challenging obstacle course not unlike the American Ninja Warped Wall but shorter at 10 ft. It was quite a crowd favourite as many eagerly waited in line for a chance to conquer it.
The festivities continued long after the run ended. Emcees Phat Fabes and Melissa Th’ng kept the crowd on their feet while performances by B-boy dancers Wakaka Crew, beatboxer Koujee and flow artist group PsycuSix helped to keep the runners entertained as they eased off their fatigue after giving their all for the race.
Puma also set up a unique pop up store at the race venue to give participants an exclusive opportunity to try out the all-new Ignite Dual running shoe endorsed by the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt. The pop up store was a major hit among the runners as many were seen frequenting it to get a feel of the Ignite Dual. The shoe, which combines both flexibility and high energy returns, was worn by most of the Puma Friends and media who took part in the run.
