Have you registered yet for WOW Run 2015 that’s going to take place on 25th October 2015? Registration closes on the 30th of September!
What is WOW Run, you might ask? WOW stands for ‘Women Of Wellness’, an organisation that aims to help individuals achieve fitness, wellness in both body and spirit with the theme of modesty and spirit of sisterhood. The inaugural WOW Run was held in Singapore by Muzdalifah Anuar in 2014 with 1,000 women participating in a 5 km fun run.
This year, WOW Run is even bigger, with five other countries joining in on the fun, i.e. Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Australia, and the United States of America! On 25th October 2015, runners from these six countries will run 5 km together.
The theme for this year’s run is #embracewomanhood, with the aim of spreading the love for active lifestyle with other women across the globe, as sisters in spirit, and not as separate nations.
In Malaysia, the run will be officiated by Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, a well known advocate for women’s rights in Malaysia.
To add more energy into WOW RUN, Aida Mohd, a Zumba instructor will lead the runners through a 30-minutes workout.
While cooling down after a good workout, participants can listen to an inspiring panel of women who will talk about leadership in their respective fields. Alecia Heng, the President of Gorgeous Geeks, is putting together the said panel, which will include Dato’ Yasmin Mahmood, Nadiah Tan Abdullah, and Karen Loh.
Nashata was one of the inaugural sponsors for WOW RUN 2014 in Singapore and this year’s runners will get again the modest running attire designed by Nashata. To my knowledge, this is the only run in Malaysia that offers a long-sleeved running top. WOW Run also offers a short-sleeved t-shirt for runners who prefer a conventional shirt.
These are the WOW Run top options:
Here’s a shot of the long-sleeved top with the finisher’s medal:

All these exciting activities will be happening at Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) in Cyberjaya.
WOW Run 2015 is organised and co-sponsored by Nashata, and is supported by Gorgeous Geeks, Malaysia Women Marathon, and Women’s Aid Organisation, and sponsored by Good Virtues Co, Biogrow Oat BG22, Tamek Premium Juices, Cyberview, as well as MDeC.
