Electric Run

 

Neon shades and hues emanated even brighter than before from the Selangor Turf Club, Kuala Lumpur with the return of this year’s Electric Run® Malaysia 2016 presented by Shell FuelSave on 7 May 2016.

 

Organized by The Livescape Group and supported by Malaysia Major Events, the Electric Run® Malaysia made waves last year when it achieved the title for the “Largest Participation in a Neon Run” in the Malaysia Book of Records. This year, the fun run saw an even larger participation with over 15,000 runners completing the 5km track, which culminated with a celebration graced by international superstars, Nico & Vinz, alongside a host of talented local musicians including SonaOne, Twinkies, H3, and ABeatC.

 

   

 

After the flag-off, runners began their illuminated journey through the nine Courselands available at the Electric Run® Malaysia 2016 presented by Shell FuelSave. The first Courseland runners encountered the Water Station decorated with a sea of neon colours. They then encountered the Neffmau5 Land where they were taken to an ethereal wonderland of neon trees and sky lanterns. Participants then “weathered the storm” at the Rainforest with glowing umbrellas hanging overhead and soothing sounds of the forest in the background.

 

At Rainbow Road, participants were greeted with technicolour arches of light, before they were transported to an aquatic paradise decorated with brightly lit, giant marine life at Under The Sea. Candy Lane was also a treat for runners with a sweet tooth, as it brought to life a wonderland of sweets with the delightful fragrance of cotton candy, vanilla, popcorn, and cinnamon.

 

   

 

This year, the Electric Run® Malaysia 2016 also featured two new Courselands. One Courseland featured a special design by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology as the “Official University Partner”, while the other is a mystery land conceptualized by the university’s students – a “Malaysia Truly Asia”-themed Courseland highlighting Malaysia in all its neon glory.
