The 8th edition of the Malaysia Women Marathon will be known as the MCIS Life Malaysia Women Marathon (MWM)’ for the next 3 years.
The only women marathon in South East Asia welcomed MCIS Insurance Berhad (MCIS Life) as their title sponsor. Coincidentally, the race will be held from 6 – 8 March 2020, in conjunction with the International Women’s Day (IWD) at the iconic Padang Timur, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
MCIS Life stands to be the first insurance company in Malaysia to be a collaborative partner in supporting an all-women’s marathon. There will be 4 distance categories – Full Marathon, half marathon, 10km and a 5km fun run – to cater for everyone.
Besides cash prizes, the best Malaysian runner in the Full Marathon category will be guaranteed a slot to represent MCIS Life MWM to the prestigious Nagoya Women marathon. Additionally, the Best Malaysian runner for the half marathon category stands to participate in the Women Run Taipei 2020.
Known to also host several other activities alongside the main run focusing on issues central to women, this year’s event carries the theme of United Nation’s IWD 2020 which stands for Generation Equality.
MCIS Life MWM2020 will be holding several dialogue series in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action, some of which will be coordinated by Girl2Leader, an NGO that offers training for female youths.
The activities running concurrently with the race will also see some collaboration with the programs that the Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya, Yang Berhormat Maria Chin Abdullah, has arranged for the constituency to mark IWD 2020.
