The Music Run by CIMB Returns to KL Sports City This November! ❤
The Music Run will make its much anticipated return to Kuala Lumpur for the 6th consecutive year this November, with CIMB Group (“CIMB” or “the Group”) as its new Presenting Partner. The Music Run by CIMB will take place on 23 November 2019 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 Trackcircuit, 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!

Mohamed Adam Wee Abdullah, Group Chief Marketing Officer, CIMB Group enthused that they are excited to partner with The Music Run this year and look forward to offering a super-fun experience to all participants, especially CIMB customers. This carbon-neutral mass participation event ties in well with CIMB’s focus on championing sustainability principles to ensure the well-being of our planet and future generations.
More elements will be introduced in 2019 to make The Music Run by CIMB bigger, faster and better, whilst at the same time making a concerted effort to lead the industry in event sustainability practices. Besides the already unique nature of The Music Run by CIMB, they are taking an active stance to reduce single use plastic usage, are endeavouring to be Malaysia’s first carbon-neutral mass-participation event and will be implementing an industry-leading recycling and waste-management programme.
The Music Run by CIMB originated in Malaysia and 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 2018 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.
Besides having the unrivalled opportunity of participating in a standout event, participants of The Music Run by CIMB will receive a limited edition finisher medal and a Run Pack containing a high-quality runner’s t-shirt, a re-usable drawstring bag replete with a car sticker, temporary tattoos and quality goodies from brand partners. 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.
Early Bird Tickets for The Music Run by CIMB will launch on 11 July 2019 at 12pm with prices starting from RM85. Those who wish to purchase tickets can do so by visiting the event’s official website at www.themusicrun.com.my.
