Seremban, 13 August 2017-More than 7,500 participants from all over Malaysia and some from as far as Japan, Korea, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Hong Kong converged at Dataran Centrio in Seremban 2 for the highly-anticipated IJM Land Half Marathon 2017. IJM Land is an active advocate of healthy living and positive lifestyle that bonds communities through sports such as running, exemplifying their tagline “Run Together, Bond Stronger”. Funds totalling up to RM40,000 were raised from the IJM Land Half Marathon 2017, which will be channelled towards Pertubuhan Hospice Negeri Sembilan (Hospice) and Malaysia Lysosomal Diseases Association (MLDA) to support their programmes and activities. The event also provided – through its medical partner Columbia Asia Hospital Seremban – free selected health screenings for runners and visitors to the race.
IJM Land Half Marathon involves a 21KM Half Marathon category and two 10KM runs – one for adults aged 18 years and above and another for junior aged 12 years and above. All runners who have completed the race regardless of their category took home goodie bags with Finisher Medal and certificate. Lucky draw prizes worth more than RM15,000 were also up for grabs, and runners who completed the 21KM race also received a custom-made Ultron Micro-dry Finisher Tee. The 7th edition of IJM Land Half Marathon will be held on 12 August 2018 and we look forward to seeing you at the event.
