Show your love for Penang at the Love Penang Run 2022!
The 5-km fun run intends to provide a platform for members of the public to show their love for Penang and adopt a healthy lifestyle, while discovering the beauty of George Town
George Town, Penang, Malaysia, 15 July 2022: Members of the public from all walks of life can soon look forward to participating in Love Penang Run, a 5-km fun run slated to take place in George Town on 14 August 2022. The fun run aims to draw 10,000 participants who are keen to show their love for Penang.
Organised by Penang State Government and co-organised by Penang State Sports Council and Penang Forward Sports Club, the fun run aims to provide a platform for members of the public to express their love for Penang and adopt a healthy lifestyle, while discovering the beauty of Penang’s capital, George Town.
The fun run is held as a follow up to the launching of “♥️Penang”, a new official slogan launched by Penang Chief Minister YAB Chow Kon Yeow in June 2022. ♥️Penang is a community campaign that calls for the residents of Penang to unite and recover after the difficult times brought about by the pandemic.
The aim of the slogan is to encourage Penang residents to rebuild what was broken, and to reconstruct the hopes and dreams that may have been lost during the pandemic lock downs. One of the facets of life that was inarguably disrupted was the chance to go outdoors and exercise. The ♥️Penang Run is one of the activities to promote regaining a healthy lifestyle while appreciating the wonderful sights of George Town. Additionally, all organisations are encouraged to adopt the slogan as a mantra and reminder to contribute to the state and take action to make Penang a better place for future generations.
♥️Penang Run is now open for registration. The starting and ending point for the run is at Beach Street. Each participant is entitled to a t-shirt, finisher’s medal and e-certificate. The registration deadline is 5 August 2022. The fun run is open for all ages but children below 12 must be accompanied by their parents or guardians.
