MPI GENERALI RUN 2017 – Graduation
The sixth annual community run of MPI Generali is happening at Padang Merbok on 8 January 2017. This a proven quality mid-sized running event, and traditionally, it will be the first official run of the New Year for many of the 4,000 registered runners.
Over the past 4 months, the running community was invited to participate in 4 training sessions called ‘My First Run Clinic’ which were held at Sri Hartamas.
The last running clinic session (Graduation Run) was held on 10th December 2016, and at the end, all of the participants were treated to a hearty breakfast. Read the official statement below for more information on the Graduation Run.
Another important aspect of this session was that it also marked the first collection date for preloved shoes and t-shirts to be donated to the Orang Asli Community under a CSR initiative named Project Good Deeds. Read the official statement below for more information on Project Good Deeds.
I managed to giveaway only 12 of my Running Tees because earlier in the year, I had already donated 40 Tees to the homeless in Kuala Lumpur.
Nevertheless, it does not matter how many preloved stuff that you can give, nor do you have to be a registered participant. Plus it doesn’t even have to be ‘running’ shoes and t-shirts to be accepted. The satisfaction of giving to a worthwhile cause and at the same time, help save our environment, is PRICELESS. So, please donate what items that you can by going to the following Collection Points at the date and time stipulated below.
1st Collection (Graduation Run)
10 Dec 2016 – Sri Hartamas, 7:30am-9:30am
2⃣nd Collection (Race Entry Collection)
5-7 Jan 2017 – Sports Hub, Lot 10 Shopping Mall, 12pm to 5pm
3⃣rd Collection (Race Day)
8 Jan 2017 – Padang Merbok, 6am to 11am

My First Run Clinic wrapped up with Graduation Run Guest speaker YK Lim shared on the winning mindset Session ended with Graduation Breakfast.
Kuala Lumpur – MPI Generali Insurans Berhad last Saturday wrapped up its My First Run Clinic programme for the year with Graduation Run at Sri Hartamas large playground. The general insurer organises the clinic programme as a complement to its annual community run, MPI Generali Run, to help amateur runners and participants learn more about the healthy activity and how to do it correctly.
For all four sessions this year, My First Run Clinic features avid casual athlete YK Lim as guest speaker and product sharing from clinic partners Pilatique Studio, Garmin Malaysia, 2XU Malaysia and Hammer Nutrition.
YK started Graduation Run by sharing about the winning mindset before the participants broke into three loops of practice run.
Upon returning to the playground, Hammer Nutrition enlightened the participants on proper fuels and supplements for endurance athletes. The session ended on a celebratory note with Graduation Breakfast.
The first collection of Project Good Deeds was also made during the session. The CSR initiative seeks to reduce the impact caused by solid waste on the environment by collecting pre-loved sports shoes and tees from MPI Generali Run’s participants. The collected shoes and tees would be donated to the Orang Asli community, with this year’s collection going to Kampung Orang Asli Bakar Leleh Bumbum, Pulau Carey, Selangor; Kampung Orang Asli Pulau Carey, Selangor; Kampung Orang Asli Batu Semenyih, Selangor; and Kampung Orang Asli Sebir, Negeri Sembilan.
The sixth annual community run of MPI Generali is happening at Padang Merbok on 8 January 2017. After My First Run Clinic, the general insurer hopes the participants will be more prepared for the Race!
