Press Release : NIGHT RUNNERS SET TO LIGHT UP PUTRAJAYA AGAIN

BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014 Targets 10,000 Runners to Experience Wholesome Improvements

KUALA LUMPUR, 19th May 2014 - BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon is back again for its 5th edition with some 7,000 marathon runners already confirmed their participation for Malaysia's most sought after night run.
“I am deeply encouraged by this year’s early registration for BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon”, said Race Director, Mr. V. Nithiaseelan during the Press Conference of BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014 held here today at Royal Chulan, Kuala Lumpur.

He is also confident that the night marathon is set to achieve 10,000 participation before the end of 31st July even though there have been an increase in such events in Malaysia.

"I believe that the enthusiasm to participate in BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon is due to the fact that it is a marathon with a difference, and every year we make it a point to make changes that will reflect our uniqueness," continues Nithi.

This year is no exception, BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014 features changes which includes a new race route, tag line and insurance coverage for the runners.

Commenting on the route change, Nithi mentions that the new race route will highlight a mix of popular landscapes and the outskirts of Putrajaya.

"We believe the new route would present a more challenging race for professional runners, whilst at the same time allowing new runners to enjoy the amazing environment that Putrajaya has to offer," adds Nithi.

As an effort to stay true to the stature of being a night run with a difference, BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014 also adds value for the runners with insurance coverage provided by the newly re-branded life insurance company, Gibraltar BSN.

According to Ahmad Latfan Mohd Amran, Deputy Chief Executive (Corporate Support) of Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN), BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon runners will be insured from the starting line up until they finish the race.

"We are glad that Gibraltar BSN is on board with us this year. The protection will give the runners an ease of mind during the race," said Latfan.

"We raised RM100,000 for our beneficiary last year and we hope the enthusiasm to participate in the 10km Corporate CSR run category will continue to grow for 2014," continues Latfan.

  3. I love the idea of runs being held at night. The air would be definitely cooler, a bit fresher and less traffic!! I hope someday all runs would be held at night instead.

  7. You know what? I like your blog's banner and always stared at it when I come here. It's like a picture that speaks a thousand words from the back angle of you looking at the waters with food in hand. If you have posed and looked into the camera, nothing much to ponder la. Just ngap and eat your food la! Muahahaha

    So I always stared and asked...what is Lina thinking? Did she see a water snake? Is she going to feed the fishes?
