I can’t believe the Malaysia Women Marathon is on its 5th wood anniversary already. MWM needs no introduction so let’s go through what’s new and exciting at MWM this year? MWM ’17 will be held on Sunday, 5th March at Stadium Shah Alam. Like previous years, there will be MWM Expo on Friday & Saturday, 3rd & 4th March at Dewan Meranti, Level 3, Accapella Suite Hotel, Shah Alam. It is also where you pick up your race kit.
1. A Fit Mom Raises a Fit Family
Echoing that, on the 5th anniversary of MWM, now the children can run 2.5km or 5km as there will be Children’s Run by Columbia Asia Bukit Rimau. Children as young as 6 to 12 years old can participate in the 2.5km run, while teenagers age 13 – 15 can race at the 5km run. Running kid gets a running vest, bib, medal and cert for RM25 registration fees only. Children for 2.5km category will be running around Stadium Shah Alam. There are prizes to be won too! It is a good avenue to encourage active lifestyles among children and teenagers as recent studies conducted by the Nutrition Society of Malaysia reported that almost one third of kids ages 6 – 17 years old are overweight or obese.
If you are not running, you can bring your kids and introduce them the joy of running. You can register your children at MWM registration page
2. What about other categories?
- Full Marathons – female and pacer (male allowed) RM110/person
- Half Marathon – female and pacer (male allowed) RM95/person
- 10 km – female RM80/person
- 6 km – female (CLOSED)
Last date to register is 4th March, so you still have time, but don’t wait to long as you will have limited shirt sizes to choose from as the race day gets closer. Registration can be done at MWM registration page. Do follow their facebook page for event updates or changes.
Like previous years, Tourism Selangor is the key sponsor of MWM, and YB Elizabeth Wong graciously supports women in running and I hope she runs with the other ladies like previous years.
