On 10th October, it was #NationalSportsDay and over 15, 000 Music Runners™ thronged the iconic Sepang International Circuit. Some ran, some danced but all partied to the beat of their favourite music tracks at the second edition of The Music Run™ by AIA.
Few weeks back, the runners helped to decide on the music they wanted to listen in each zone via a bespoke music selection created in collaboration with digital music partner, Spotify. The most voted songs were played while participants grooved to five zones, featuring different music genre namely Rock, Pop, Old School, Hip Hop and Dance which were set over 5km.
This year’s The Music RunTM by AIA Kuala Lumpur kicked off in the late afternoon and culminated in a pulsating After Party at The Music Village that lasted throughout the evening. A mass Zumba warm-up session led by Fitness First instructors generated an electrifying atmosphere from as early as 4.30pm.
At 5.00pm, AIA Bhd.’s Chief Executive Officer, Anusha Thavarajah, flagged off the first wave of Music Runners™ who grooved to the rousing beats of ‘We will rock you by Queen in the AirAsia Rock Zone. As Music Runners™ made their way across the 5km Soundtrack, they were treated to activities in each Music Zone, once of the highlights being the AIA Mobile Party Bus in the AIA Dance Zone.
The euphoric mood continued at the After Party held in The Music Village, as Australia’s DJ Greggy kept energy levels at a high with his mix of feel-good songs and upbeat tracks. The event also featured some of the hottest personalities and music acts in Malaysia. Music Runners™ were treated to stellar music performances by Paperplane Pursuit and Darren Ashley, while radio deejay Linora Low kept Music RunnersTM fists pumping and hearts thumping long into the night.
