The Music Run by CIMB returned to Malaysia for its highly anticipated third edition with CIMB returning as the Presenting Partner.

The iconic Bukit Jalil National Stadium came alive on Saturday with close to 17,000 participants, hailing from all walks of life to “Live the Beat” for a 5km fun run along the “Sound Track” run course. Interactive music guided runners throughout the course to keep the motivation high, while elevating the running experience for all participants.

The event, dubbed as "Asia’s Fittest Party," extended well beyond the run itself, as the evening culminated with a musical celebration led by DJ Sam Withers and the team, who returned to perform with other renowned musical acts including BLINK, The Filters, and EMO NIGHT KL.

The Music Run was hosted by Fresh Events Asia, a name behind more than forty of the hottest events in the region and has amassed a steadily increasing following over the last decade. Adding to the ultimate celebration of fitness and music, the one-of-a-kind, safe, alcohol-free and healthy experience is also committed to being environmentally friendly with its 'More Fun. Less Waste' ethos.

“We are proud to return as the Presenting Partner of The Music Run by CIMB for the third consecutive year. In line with CIMB’s brand proposition, ‘MOVING FORWARD WITH YOU’ – we always place our customers at the heart of everything we do, fulfilling our promise as a purpose driven organisation to continue enhancing value for our customers. Our commitment continues to be on championing sustainability as part of life, while encouraging the public to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle,” said Toni Darusman, Group Chief Brand & Marketing Officer, CIMB Group.

“The Music Run by CIMB not only provides a one-of-a-kind experience, but we are also offsetting the carbon footprint generated which will be monitored and tracked throughout the event by our partner, YTL-SV Carbon. This unique and immersive event is therefore an all-encompassing ode to life, music, and well-being – and we hope that all participants will continue taking small but consistent steps towards a more sustainable way of life,” added Toni.
