On 8th March 2017, Coway (M) Sdn Bhd had a press conference in Novotel Hotel Kuala Lumpur to inform the public of Coway’s debut running event. After being in Malaysia for 10 years, this is the first time Coway will be organizing a running event. The event will be held on 7th May 2017 at the newly opened Starling Mall in Damansara Uptown.
Coway Run’s press conference were attended by Mr Kyle Choi Ki-Ryong (right), Managing Director of COWAY (M) Sdn Bhd together with Mr Ryan Jung Tae Seung, Head of Marketing Division of COWAY (M) Sdn. Bhd. They were both enthusiastic of this first ever organized run. What better way to bring The Water SpecialistTM to you than by having a running event, right?
According to Mr Kyle Choi Ki-Ryong, the running event consists of a 5KM and 10KM run around the Starling Mall area with 4 categories. The categories are:
- Men & Female Veteran
- Men & Women Open (only for ages 18 and above)
Due to the fact that this is the first ever run organized by Coway, only adult participants are allowed to enter. After this event, Coway (M) Sdn Bhd might be able to gauge the success rate of the event and maybe in the future, there will be changes or additions made to other running events that will be organized by Coway.
Coway is devoted to promoting a wellness lifestyle for all and wishes to remind participants to take care of their health and undergo light training before the event to ensure they will be in optimal condition for the run. There will be running tips and guide for participants at Coway’s official Facebook page and a running clinic will also be held to prep Coway’s runners for a pre-run preparation.
In addition to that, participants of Coway Run will get to enjoy the best choice of water because Coway’s three giant water purifiers at all three water stations will be placed to ensure participants stay hydrated throughout the run.
Registration fees for the run are only priced at RM50 for 10KM run and RM40 for 5KM run. This running event is open for Malaysians only though.
“This highly anticipated run could be a new beginning for participants, where they can meet people whom they share the same interests with, bond with them and motivate each other in their steps to a healthier life,” Mr. Kyle.
By joining the run, Coway believes that individuals would learn to adopt to a healthier lifestyle. By doing so, we can reduce healthcare-related costs, improve productivity in our daily lives and achieve overall better health and a robust organ system. To promote this belief, even famous Malaysian fitness model, Jordan Yeoh and former Miss Universe Malaysia, Carey Ng would run alongside other runners on the day of the event.
