Editor’s Note

Last year, The Marathon Company (TMC) capably brought us the first Light Up The Night Run which was sponsored by Ice Watch Malaysia (read about the 2015 Press Launch). There was a huge buzz surrounding the 1,000 free giveaways of cool Ice Watch timepieces as part of their attractive marketing strategy which successfully signed-up 3,500 participants.

This year, Ice Watch and TMC is promising a more colourful extravaganza and with even more runners to light up the night roads of Shah Alam. Check-out all the goodies and new attractions awaiting you on 3rd December 2016 at Plaza Shah Alam in the official press release below….
