`Battery-powered' marathon to light up the night
KUALA LUMPUR: Battery maker Energizer is organising Night Marathon 2010 which will take place in the Klang Valley on March 27.
Energizer which is partnering with Adidas and Schick for the event said, in a statement, that the venue would be announced soon.
The venue will be a conducive location for runners who will be given special headlights for running safely in the dark.
Energizer said the unusual race had already made a mark globally with night races being held in South Korea, Argentina and South Africa since 2007.
The company's brand manager for Malaysia, Joshua Leong, said the race would excite and inspire Malaysians, especially avid runners, to take up the challenge.
"Running in the dark is something not many people including experienced runners, have done.
"Most runs in Malaysia are held in the early mornings, so we are looking forward to an exciting and impactful event," said Leong.
