AK Balloon Run is Avenue K’s seven-kilometer signature fun run amassing participants to take part in celebration of joy and happiness. The run will take place in the vicinity of the mall taking up KL City Center’s scenic route along Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Pinang.
The uniqueness of AK’s Balloon Run lies with the balloons given to all runners that work as time boosters. Each participant is provided with 4 balloons that represents 10 seconds each which they can tie on their bodies. A 5 second deduction from each participant’s official finishing time is imposed for any lost or burst balloon upon the completion of the run. This continued tradition has given the event its very own signature which makes the AK Balloon Run what it is today.
“We are excited to usher the return of our iconic run and to join participants from all walks of life as we celebrate unity through fitness and fun. We are extremely proud of the accomplishment achieved from this run throughout the years and are looking forward to welcome participants with our sponsors and AFO Radio DJs Agnes and Mag hosting the event with DJs Kym, Beauty, Ryan, Jeremy Teo, Joel Kuan, Kenny Tan and Miss Malaysia Earth Eco Tourism Adelina Chan joining this year’s run” said AK’s General Manager, Phang Sze Sze.
Participants for the run will also receive an AK Balloon Run string bag, race bib, microfibre interlock t-shirt, balloons as well as goodies from sponsors of the event such as 100plus, Skechers, Hexos Candy and much more. An AK Balloon Run 5.0 medal will be given to finishers of the run and the top runners from each category will take home cash prizes worth over RM10,000.
