Since its inception in 2005, Mizuno Wave Run has been one of the most popular running events in the Klang Valley. This year, to commemorate its 10th wave edition, Mizuno Wave Run is set to deliver a new experience to the runners by introducing a new distance category, which is the 21km Half Marathon alongside with its popular 10km distance category.

“It’s been a great milestone for Mizuno Wave Run since its inception back in 2005.

“Over the years, we have been receiving positive responses from our regular Mizuno runners and we are thrilled to be back again. This year, we are targeting 4,500 runners and we believe that with the introduction of the new distance category of 21km Half Marathon, we are able to deliver our best commitments to those who have been supporting us over the past 9 years”, Carol further commented.

Putrajaya is chosen again to host the Mizuno Wave Run 2015 due to its perfect landscape infrastructure. “Undeniably, a good location plays a major role in ensuring a comfortable running environment for runners. With the beautiful landscape, safety routes and ample parking space available, we are convinced that choosing Putrajaya as the event location will encourage and entice a promising number of runners this year”, said Senior Sales Manager of W.O.S. World of Sports Malaysia, Mr. Glenny J Da Costa.

Mizuno Wave Run 2015 offers a total of 8 categories for various age groups and winning prizes worth more than RM50, 000 are up for grabs for the Top 10 Finishers in both 21km and 10km distance categories. “We would like to thank our official sponsors; Nestle Fitness Cereal, Perskindol, Ebene and Gatsby for their continuous support in making Mizuno Wave Run a yearly success”, Glenny added.
