GUARDIAN FUN RUN 2022 | September 2022

After 2 years of hiatus for my body and soul, im excited to share with you that Guardian will be organizing a Fun Run happening in 2022! In conjunction with Guardian's Live Health Smart campaign, this would be an initiative to encourage healthy living through smart choices by giving the community an exciting fun run to look forward to, which would be the Guardian Fun Run happening on the 17th of September 2022 in Kuala Lumpur. Personally, im excited to participate in this to see how fit my body is after 2 years of not running. After all, if youre not ready to start big, start small, and this fun run would be perfect for me to test out my rusted engine. 

The ‘Live Health Smart’ campaign runs from 27 June to 31 July and the Guardian Fun Run is Guardian's response to the findings of their Guardian National Health Survey that was conducted over the months of April and May 2022 to determine which and what aspects of health was important to the society.  The key findings from the survey, showed that 74% of the respondent exercise to keep fit and stay healthy. Also without a doubt, most of the respondents realized the importance of exercise since the Covid-19 pandemic hit and want to have a well-balanced lifestyle, eat nutritionally good food and supplements. It is also concluded said a good night’s sleep comes from good exercise.

With that, Guardian focuses on health-oriented activities to keep with Guardian’s vision and promise to help their customers lead healthy and beautiful lives. The Guardian Fun Run, will be held at MAEPS (Malaysia Agro Exhibition Park Serdang), Selangor, where participants can expect it to be a fun-filled affair catering for everyone in the family, including the children!

From what I've heard, there will be a carnival-like atmosphere filled with Carnival Games, on-stage entertainment, free products to sample, food trucks, and a lucky draw with prizes up to RM10,000 to be won (only eligible for physical Run participants only). How exciting! For your information, part of the proceeds from the registration fees will be donated to Suriana Welfare Society, a Non-Governmental Organisation dedicated to helping children in B40 communities, towards the setup of their next Play and Learn Center in Balakong. So, talk about killing two birds with one stone? You get to stay fit while also lending a hand to those who are in need by participating. 

There will be three categories of the run, namely, a 3km Family Run, a 5km Neon Run and a 5km Virtual Run which will enable our customers outside of the Klang Valley, to take part too. Registration is now open and early bird discounts are available for those who register from 27 June to 24 July 2022. From 25 July to 15 August 2022, tickets will be sold at RM60 for adults in the 5km Neon Run.
