PUTRAJAYA – Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak flagged off some 4,000 participants of the #RunWithUs 2015 event at Dataran Putrajaya at Precinct 3, here this morning.
The Prime Minister arrived at the square at 6.45am and was greeted with a thunderous applause from participants.
The event was jointly organised by AstiRunners, who are a group of runners from Alumni Sekolah Menengah Sains Teluk Intan and Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah, Putrajaya.
The run aims to promote a healthy lifestyle, as well as to give back to the Malaysian running community in return for sharing and supporting AstiRunner’s positive and life-changing experiences.
Besides the 5km and 12km for men and women category, the run also encouraged young children aged 7 and above to participate in the 5km Fun Run.
Just after the flag off, families and friends took the opportunity to greet and take ‘selfies’ with the prime minister.
