A record-breaking running event!
PRESS RELEASE, DEC 3, 2014: THE MAZE CHALLENGE ASIA, the first of its kind not only in Malaysia, but in the world, has been officially given the title of The Largest Maze in Malaysia by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR). This adventurous and adrenaline packed event was held on the 29th & 30th November 2014 at Sepang International Circuit.
Organised by 2Spicy Entertainment, THE MAZE CHALLENGE ASIA is supported by Malaysia Major Events, a division of Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau, an agency under Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture. This 7700m2 of maze was preceded and finished with military styled obstacles which stimulated participants’ body and mind, through visual perception, coordination and critical thinking.
THE MAZE CHALLENGE ASIA saw some 3,200 participants over two days, vying for the grand prize worth up to RM5,000. The winners of the race were judged separately for the two days, 29th November and 30th November due to a bad storm that ruined part of the maze on late Saturday afternoon. The winner for the Saturday, 29th November is Mohd Khairul Ikhwan Bin Mhd Yusoff for the Open Category. The winners for the Sunday, 30th November are Choi Choon Onn for the Open Category, Abdullah Ariffudin Bin Ashari for the Media Category and Xavier Azad Hairston-Khan for the Tourist Category. Both the Saturday and Sunday winners have won cash and prizes worth up to RM5,000.
“We would like to thank all our sponsors that made this event possible. Although most of the feedback we receive from the public was positive, we want them to know that this year’s event was just a beginning and we promise to make next year’s Maze Challenge even better” said Brian Corvers, Director, of 2Spicy Entertainment Sdn Bhd.
