The AQUA Run was aimed at encouraging more Malaysians to venture outdoors and experience a fun and exciting day of activity together with their friends and families, in line with Sunway Lagoon’s reputation as a one-stop fun destination in creating memorable moments.
The morning kicked-off with a quick 15-minute warm-up session, after which the runners took their positions at the starting line, where they were greeted with a “cold shower” just as the race began!
It was certainly a day filled with plenty of thrills and spills as the runners made their way across some of the park’s most iconic attractions, including the Malaysia’s Largest Man-made Sandy Surf Beach.
At each of the six designated fun zones, the runners encountered unexpected surprises and interesting challenges, such as the Splash Attack where runners brazed through pulsating rotating sprinklers and keeping their balance while avoiding the spongy holes at the Puddles Mattress.
Runners put their climbing skills to test while they try to reach the peak of the Climb & Slide and squeeze their way through the Wall Diving. Finally, the runners arrived at the Water Disco Hut near the Malicove Pool, where they were thoroughly washed and rinsed amidst colourful lights and music, before racing towards the finish line.
“Sunway Lagoon is known for being a one-stop fun destination, and we continuously strive to create memorable moments for everyone. Our visitors spend a lot of time at our water attractions, and we thought how great it would be to hold our very first AQUA Run where participants can experience our park in a different and unique way. I’m really happy to see such an encouraging turnout at this event,” commented Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.
Before proceeding for a fun-filled time at the remainder of the park, all runners proudly took home medals for their outstanding efforts. The day came to a close with a Bubble Music Celebration, a bubble-filled concert at the Surf Beach’s Giant Canopy, where participants were able to let their hair down and dance the evening away.
