Let's have Some Irish Fun At Shamrock Run Malaysia 2016

On Friday, Jan 29th 2016 there was a soft-launch for Shamrock Run Malaysia 2016 at O'Brien's Irish Sandwich Café, Menara Prudential and it was graced by the presence of His Excellency Eamon Hickey, the Irish Ambassador to Malaysia.

It is interesting to note that, the Shamrock Run Malaysia; which is held for the second time in 2016 after a successful run held in 2014, is the first Shamrock Run held in Asia!
The run is to be held on Feb 27th, 2016 at Taman Botani Putrajaya and more than half of the 1,500 slots open to public for 10K and 3K are already snapped up.
 A peek of the event's tee.
 
Essentially a fun run, Mr Hafidz Kosai, the president of Malaysian Irish Alumni Association said that the run is a great event for those who are starting out in joining races, the non-competitive runners and also those joining with their families.
 
Instead of prizes for the fastest runners, participants can look forward to winning prizes for best-dressed.
 
Extra points will be given to participants decked in Irish or Malaysian themed costume, or participants can also wear a costume that marries both cultures together.
 
I can't wait to see what my running friends will wear at the event!
 Who will get this "elite" bib, I wonder? ^^
 
10K category will be flagged off at 7.15am while the 3K at 7.30am.
Both 3K and 10K runners are entitled to get :
  • event t-shirt
  • running bib
  • finisher medal
  • e-certificate
  • and light breakfast after the run

See you on Saturday, Feb 27th 2016 at Taman Botani Putrajaya.
