After a hiatus of two years due to the pandemic, Ipoh will play host to the MCIS Life-Malaysia Women Marathon (MCIS Life MWM) 2022.
This is the first time the MCIS Life-MWM tours outside of the Klang Valley.
The run will be held on August 21, 2022 in conjunction with their 10th anniversary. It will hit the streets of Ipoh to take in the sights and scenery of the city.
Meanwhile, the first chapter of the 2022 race tour concluded at Padang Timur, Petaling Jaya in May with more than 1,000 participants coming together for the post-pandemic sporting event conducted in strict compliance to safety guidelines in order to manage the spread of COVID-19 infections.
“Women are instrumental influencers in our society when it comes to promoting the importance
of leading a healthy lifestyle and so we take this year’s race for the first time to a venue outside
of the Klang Valley and Ipoh is our first stop,” said Ragunath Murthy, Chief Distribution and
Marketing Officer, MCIS Life.
“The City of Ipoh is all set to welcome the MCIS Life MWM 2022 participants, especially those coming from other cities as our run forms part of the National Day celebrations in Ipoh.
“The run’s route takes runners through heritage buildings and locations starting from Padang Ipoh,” said Ragunath.
“This time our event includes a one-of-a-kind category too, the full marathon duo, where two individuals can pair up to run the half marathon distance each while their combined distance and timing will be used to record their full marathon speed.
“This means less effort to complete a full marathon with the help of a friend!” added Madam Karen Loh, race director for MCIS Life MWM.
