ABOUT MYBUDDIES RUN

Running > The human body's most raw form of freedom.

MERDEKA MYBUDDIES RUN is aimed at unity and solidarity beyond race and skin colour in the true spirit of being Malaysians. It is one of the official 2017 National Day celebration event organised by MYNIC, an agency under the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia (KKMM).

 

MERDEKA MYBUDDIES RUN returns in 2017 following successful running events hosted by MYNIC, namely Larian SehatiSejiwa and MYBUDDIES RUN in its 2015 and 2016 installation.

This year’s event will be hosted at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park (MAEPS), Serdang on 20 August 2017. Residing within a 130-hectare greenery, the venue promises ample space to fit a larger MERDEKA MYBUDDIES RUN event and all the activities we have set for a party that everyone would remember!

 

Save the Date. Be Fit. Be Fast. Be Fierce. Run Free.

 

Register now and come closer to the party.
