ROAR WITH PUMA NIGHT RUN 2017!
It was a roaring success.! The fourth edition of PUMA Night Run 2017 in Cyberjaya was successfully concluded on 5th August 2017 which attracts a close to 10,000 runners. It was the first time in this series; the PUMA Night Run featured two (2) running categories; ie a 6km run for casual and leisurely runners and a 12km for the competitive runners. Professionals and novices flank the street of Cyberjaya from curb to curb, all geared up to complete a 6km and 12 km courses.
Despite being a run that requires a qualifying time, the PUMA Night Run’s main goal is to satisfy both competitive and non-competitive runners unlike any other running events. The atmosphere created by everyone at the event is fantastic. Good jobs Wildcats.!
PUMA VILLAGE – where all the fun begins.
PUMA is known as one of the pioneers in the night running scene having first introduced the run in 2014 as a platform for runners from all walks of life to celebrate the joy of running and experience a carnival-like atmosphere filled with activities and performances. Body painting, photo booths and PUMA Ninja Warrior Challenge are some of the interactive activities available for runners at PUMA Village.
Emcee’d by Melissa Th’ng and Kevin Chong, and performances by national cheerleading championship Cheer Aces, No Noise Percussions, Elecoldxhot and renowned local artist, Black Hanafiah. Wait are we forgetting someone? =)
The South Korean star, Peter Lee Jae Yoon or Peter Lee, who is popularly known for starring in the hit K-drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju, is in town and participated in this year, PUMA Night Run Malaysia 2017. Despite Peter Lee’s busy schedule, he has always been focused on making fitness (*ehem we mean muscles, of course!) his priority.
Lee Jae Yoon made his first visit ever to Malaysia to participate in the PUMA Night Run 2017. He had the chance to visit PUMA’s pop up store before the run started and tried out the all-new Netfit lacing system. Peter was also pampered by homegrown Malaysian hospitality courtesy of A Cut Above, who not only sported him a new hairstyle but also maintained his good looks for the run with their professional makeup skills.
The first wave 12KM runners was flagged off by PUMA’s General Manager of South East Asia, Philippe Le-Bretton, followed by the second wave of 6KM runners by Peter Lee.
The top 3 finishers of the 12KM men and women category walked away with RM2500, RM2000 and RM1,500 worth of PUMA vouchers respectively. Winners of the 6KM men and women categories received RM1,000, RM750 and RM500 worth of PUMA vouchers respectively.
We would like to thank PUMA Malaysia for the invitation. We had fun running with PUMA this year. More photos HERE.
