The Great Eastern's Colour My Heart Run 2015, which aims to promote a healthy lifestyle, will be held in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
Held in collaboration with the Heart Foundation, the run in George Town, Penang will be on April 19 and the run in Kuala Lumpur on May 24.
The 12km timed race and a 5km fun walk catering to all ages and fitness levels will also be a colourful run since those participating will be showered with coloured powder during the run.
Great Eastern Life director and chief executive officer, Datuk Koh Yaw Hui in a statement said the Penang leg would start from Padang Kota Lama in George Town and the Kuala Lumpur leg from Merdeka Square.
"Both the Penang and Kuala Lumpur 5km Run focus on an experiential fast walk environment. Here, participants will travel at their own pace and pass through specifically designed 'colour fun' stations, where they will be showered with coloured powder, enjoy a variety of music selections and a host of other surprise activities," he said.
Koh said the run was conceptualised to promote health and improve the level of general happiness among Malaysians.
"We believe these two components are important to foster physical and emotional wellness to create a holistic lifestyle," he added.
