AFTER the success of last year’s IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge, IJM Corporation Bhd (IJM) and Allianz Malaysia Bhd (Allianz) have once again joined forces this year for another round of cruising through Kuala Lumpur.
This year’s Besraya Highway Challenge will feature a 13km run and 6km fun run on April 29 while the NPE Highway Challenge offers a much more challenging distance of a half marathon and 10km leisure run on July 29.
The 21km route for this year’s NPE Highway Challenge will be different from last year’s, giving participants an opportunity to run along the new Pantai Sentral Park Interchange, which is expected to be ready just before the challenge.
Since its debut last year, the run organised by Besraya (M) Sdn Bhd (Besraya), New Pantai Expressway Sdn Bhd (NPE) and EC Pixels, is the only duo highway challenge in Malaysia.
As venue sponsors, Besraya and NPE are responsible for getting the necessary approvals from the relevant authorities to organise the event. Bukit Aman Traffic Division gave approval on the traffic management plan for total road closure on April 29 from 2am to noon for the Besraya Highway Challenge and July 29 from 2am to noon for the NPE Highway Challenge.
