  Official race description:

Immerse yourself in the most fun event of the year!

In 2015 the 5KM Colour My Heart Run was launched with a collaboration between The Heart Foundation of Malaysia and Great Eastern Life to show Malaysian’s that exercise can be fun and that with a small amount of effort and a lot of laughter, 5KM is easy! Novices and seasoned runners, children and grandparents, boys and girls, men and women, all came together running side by side in a non-timed, fun filled atmosphere. It is amazing how far you can go when your mind is happy!

The events in both Kuala Lumpur and Penang will be held in two of the most iconic venues in Malaysia. Runners will start off in a cascade of bubbles and foam and will then traverse around an approximate 5KM route, passing through a number of “Foam Zones”.

From the very start of the event, we make sure that participants understand that it’s all about having fun. You will be showered with coloured bubbles and foam. And each of the Foam Zones will have your favorite music blasting, dancing and some special surprises.

To add to the fun, runners will receive a special race pack containing a range of goodies to enhance your days experience. These include a specially designed Bubble Dash t-shirt, sunglasses, number bib, bag and face mask.

And to finish your morning on a high, the finish line area will be turned into a free carnival with games, music and star appearances.

It’s all about the FUN not the Competition!

Great is going the distance for your loved ones!

Since its’ inaugural event in 2012, the Great Eastern LIVE GREAT Run has set out to deliver a race experience that is second to none. And this year we are going to be better than ever.

With a brand new route starting and finishing in Dataran Merdeka, runners will experience a specially designed course that aims to push all participants to test themselves through the heart of the city, overcoming hurdles as you do in life.

With last year’s finishing time for the 12KM route set at 44:16 for the men and 51:56 for the ladies, the bar has been set high but whether you aim to beat records or just finish the race, come and enjoy the day with us.

Great is proving that you can do it!

Building upon the success of the 12KM LIVE GREAT Run, the 2016 event will see the introduction of a brand new 21KM LIVE GREAT half marathon distance.

The half marathon is a serious test of one’s fitness and a commitment to training and overcoming adversity. Covering 21KM is a tremendous achievement and a truly rewarding event to compete in.

Starting and finishing in Dataran Merdeka, the 21KM route will pass through the very heart of the city and will really test even the more serious runner.

So make the decision today, sign-up, plan your training programme and whether you are aiming for a PB or just to complete this distance, come run with us.
