This International Women’s Day is just the motivation
you need to stay active in the post Covid-19 era as the MCIS Life-Malaysia Women
Marathon 2021 (MLMWM 2021) debuts with a difference.
Aligned with the latest social distancing SOPs, the event is expected to draw over 2,000
runners, joggers, walkers and cyclists, who would be clocking in their distance covered
with the help of various digital health applications and devices.
“We’ve had a lot of request from the public and the fan base of MWM which is South
East Asia’s only women’s marathon, to keep the show running this year. After detailed
discussions with the organisers of MWM, we have decided to proceed by allowing all
participants to run, walk, jog or cycle indoors or outdoors, in their own venues and
submit their results to us electronically,” explained Prasheem Seebran, CEO and
Managing Director of MCIS Life.
Into its 9th year running, today’s race launch was done entirely via Facebook and
YouTube featuring prominent women from various industries joining in, namely Elivira
Arul, Malaysia’s favorite ballad queen.
“Our event has its history tied back to the cause of raising awareness around women
empowerment and other associated challenges faced by women. We didn’t want to
miss the opportunity of celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day which carries
the theme #ChooseToChallenge with a difference.
“Being the only women’s marathon in South East Asia, our first event this year goes
virtual, provides various distance options, categories and even welcomes cyclists to our
growing family. With this, we’re hoping women, men and children aged above 15 join us
in a fun filled month long event to stay fit and active in accordance with the prevailing
SOPs,” added Karen Loh, founder of MWM.
