20th August 2016, SHAH ALAM
PUMA Malaysia recently organized the third instalment of the annual PUMA Night Run Malaysia at Dataran Kemerdekaan Shah Alam. With a total of 10,000 running enthusiasts taking over the brightly-lit streets of Shah Alam, this year’s race not only boasted the largest turnout thus far for the Malaysian leg of the PUMA Night Run, it was also the year’s biggest PUMA Night Run in the whole of Southeast Asia.
The 10km run was intentionally designed to bring out the best in the participants by incorporating both straight terrain with hilly stretches. The runners had their resistance and endurance pushed to the limit as they raced along the streets of Shah Alam passing iconic monuments such as the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz mosque, the second largest mosque in Southeast Asia.
Enthusiastic runners crowded the venue as early as 5pm to take part in the many activities organized at the PUMA Village. One of the most popular attractions was the PUMA Red Wall, a challenging obstacle course not unlike the American Ninja Warped Wall but shorter at 10 ft. It was quite a crowd favorite as many eagerly waited in line for a chance to conquer it.
