- roads leading to Padang Merbuk to be affected between 6:50am and 9:30am
- Participants encouraged to take public transport
Kuala Lumpur – MPI Generali Insurans Berhad is pleased to announce that its fifth annual community run will take place at Padang Merbuk on Sunday 10 January 2016 as planned. Roads leading to Padang Merbuk such as Jalan Parlimen will be partially closed between 6:50am and 9:30am to ensure the safety of the participants.
All routes will be dotted with traffic cones, and runners are advised to run within the marked zones. The general insurer has requested the traffic police for its assistance and will also deploy route marshals to assist in road traffic management. The longest route of MPI Generali Run 2016 spans 12km and the shortest 3km.
Around 5,000 people are expected to turn up for the event. Project Leader Ms Jayne Liew encourages participants to use public transport to get to Padang Merbuk: “We would recommend using the LRT train and then walking to the Run venue from there. If public transport is not feasible, opt for car-pooling with your friends and family. Do note that Padang Merbuk Car Park will not be available.”
