Men’s Health Women’s Health(MHWH) Night Run by AIA Vitality is back!
EVENT UPDATE 07 JUNE 2017
EVENT VENUE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO MAEPS SERDANG GIVING MHWH NIGHT RUN A GREENER SURROUNDINGS 🌲
The 2017 Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run by AIA Vitality, which was originally scheduled to be held in Dataran Putrajaya, has now been moved to the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (or MAEPS). This change is in support of the Prime Minister’s Department’s plan to host the 60th Felda Settlers’ Day National Celebration in Putrajaya which falls on the same date.
While it is disappointing that we are unable to continue to host the run in Dataran Putrajaya this year, we are nevertheless excited with the new venue which we have carefully chosen together with the team from Men’s Health and Women’s Health.
MAEPS is an ideal alternative to Putrajaya as it offers a new and exciting experience with its idyllic and picturesque routes. The venue is set a mere 15 kilometres away from the original flag-off point at Dataran Putrajaya and has been specifically selected to minimise any disruption to your travel arrangements.
There will be no change to the run date which falls on the evening of Saturday, 22 July 2017 or to the distances and categories available.
Please check Men’s Health Malaysia and Women’s Health Malaysia events page and social media platforms for more information including running routes, flag-off times as well as other new updates.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we would like to assure you that we will work toward making the run a great success for everyone.
See you in MAEPS SERDANG on 22 July!
Last year, MHWH Night Run was a TERRIFIC trifecta affair as it was staged in Penang, Putrajaya and Johor. I was lucky to have participated in the Penang’s edition which was a MEMORABLE event with lots of food, music and merriment to entertain the crowd. I recall fondly the 21km route which gave the runners a scenic view of the breezy Penang coastline. The race was well marshaled, and I remember the exciting party atmosphere at the race village prior and after flag-off.
This time, the Event Organiser Mongoose Publishing have amalgamated all their efforts and resources in order to concentrate on one EXTRAORDINARY event to be held in MAEPS SERDANG on 22 July 2017. MHWH Night Run 2017 will be a grander affair which will entice 20,000 Runners and Revelers for a SPECTACULAR evening of Running and Partying in the heart of magnificent Putrajaya.
For the benefit of runners who are looking for more than just another running event to spice-up their running agenda, I have highlighted below what you can expect from this gala event, and how you can SAVE 30% on the registration fee…

The run will be under AIA Vitality – Malaysia’s first science-backed health programme designed by AIA to encourage and empower Malaysians to take sustained steps towards healthy living lifestyles.
It is gratifying to see how the continuous support of Malaysia’s running community has made the Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run by AIA Vitality the biggest night run in the country, says Patrick Brennan, Group CEO of Mongoose Publishing Sdn Bhd, the publishers of Men’s Health and Women’s Health in Malaysia.
This is the second-year of our collaboration with AIA Vitality and we could not have found a better partner as AIA shares our passion, drive and ambition to create an event that reaches more Malaysians than ever before.
The AIA Vitality wellness programme is perfectly designed to give an extra push to all Malaysians to live a healthier lifestyle and we are delighted to share this journey with them.

We are absolutely thrilled to host this year’s Night Run in Putrajaya under the AIA Vitality banner together with Men’s Health and Women’s Health teams again. AIA Vitality is about taking charge of one’s own health, however small, and being part of the Night Run is an excellent way to get Malaysians started on their journey to better health. With the new kids run categories, we are also able to encourage our children to lead healthy and active lifestyles, besides giving families another fun activity on the weekend to spend precious time together.
