The Music Run brings eco-friendly fitness party to Kuala Lumpur
The Music Run will return to Kuala Lumpur for the sixth consecutive year this 23rd November, with CIMB Group as its new Presenting Partner at the National Stadium at KL Sports City.
Dubbed ‘Asia’s fittest party’, The Music Run by CIMB connects urbanites with two of the world’s favourite pastimes – music and running. Combining these two elements, the event takes the form of a 5-kilometre (5K) and 10-kilometre (10K) running race with more than 100 speakers lining the entire Sound Track circuit, culminating in what is regarded as the world’s best finish line party.
With a giant stage showcasing local bands, top DJs and the renowned Live The Beat show, this high-octane event provides a one-of-a-kind, safe, healthy and enjoyable experience for all participants.
An important facet of this year’s event is the push towards sustainability and eco-awareness, making Asia’s fittest party arguably also the most eco-friendly!
“We’re excited to welcome CIMB as the event’s Presenting Partner, as we share a vision to create a more sustainable future whilst inspiring young Malaysians to lead more active lifestyles and live today better than yesterday,” said Sam Middlehurst, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Music Run.
“Besides the already unique nature of The Music Run by CIMB, we’re taking an active stance to reduce single use plastic usage, and endeavour to be Malaysia’s first carbon-neutral mass-participation event.” said Middlehurst.
The Music Run by CIMB originated in Malaysia, held its inaugural run in Kuala Lumpur in 2014 to a crowd of 6,000 and has since been experienced by more than 250,000 participants across 35 events in 13 countries.
Last year’s event saw a sell-out crowd of 20,000 participants pack the National Stadium at KL Sports City. With exciting changes fuelled by the partnership with CIMB, this year’s event is poised to be another sell out and the biggest and best yet.

This year, cash and partner-supplied prizes are also up for grabs for the top five finishers in each timed race category, with an additional cash bonus for the Malaysian National with the best finish time in each timed race category.
