The Coway Run 2017, organized by Coway(M) Sdn Bhd is making its debut for the first time on the 7th May 2017 at the Starling Mall, Damansara Uptown….
More and more people has since taken up running over the past two decades, meaning more people know the importance of how beneficial exercise is… and even those who cannot run, like me, will participate and practise brisk walking too.. which is also beneficial for our bodies and heart..
Yours truly was over at Novotel yesterday for Coway Run 2017 press conference and well, Mr Kyle Choi Ki Ryong, the Managing Director of Coway expressed his hope that the Coway Run 2017 will be a medium for Malaysians to step out from their comfort zones and be courageous to take that first step to a better and healthier life.
“The is run is not about who comes in first place but it is about summoning that courage to face your fears with a willingness to make a difference, an improvement in that will build you to be stronger and confident in tackling new adversities,”said Mr Kyle at the press conference today.
The run will consist of a 5KM and 10K run around the Starling Mall area with 4 categories of men and female veteran &men and women open(for ages 18 and above), participants can expect to spot famous fitness model Jordan Yeoh and former Miss Universe Malaysia Carey Ng running alongside other runners to cheer and motivate them at every step of the way.
Aimed at breaking the stereotype that portrays long distance running as exercise only meant for professional athletes or fit people; the Coway Run wants to instil the mind-set that every step taken is a beginning to a better life. Jordan Yeoh and Carey Ng are living proofs that show how even a beauty queen and fitness model can also overcome the challenge of a 5KM and 10KM run respectively

A running clinic will also be held to prep Coway’s runners for a pre-run preparation, so if you are interested, be sure to check it out….
To replace our bodies lost fluids during the run, Coway will also be placing three giant water purifiers at all three water stations to ensure that participants will stay hydrated throughout with the best; choice of water, the better water from The Water Specialist.
This highly anticipated run could be a new beginning for some participants, where they can meet other people whom they share the same interests with, bond with them and motivate each other in their steps to a healthier life. Afterall, a good run can make one feel pure adrenaline rush, stronger and more confident…
