We’ve had feedback from participants that they like some items provided in Rock Star Run Packs, but not others. Items they don’t like usually end up in the rubbish bin. So, this year, as part of our sustainability efforts to eliminate unnecessary waste, we’re putting the power in your hands to customise your Run Pack to Rock Star and pay only for the items you really want.

RPC is where you will collect your Run Pack with all the items required for your event day experience.  RPC will be held on Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November. The location and operating hours will be announced soon.

A friend or family member is able to collect your Run Pack on your behalf by presenting a copy of your Registration Confirmation and ID details.

Final Instructions with full details of everything you need to know about Race Day will be available in the Run Guide, which will be emailed to you and accessible on our website.

With the LRT station located right next to the National Stadium at KL Sports City, we strongly advise all participants to travel to the event by train.  As there is limited car parking available, if you’re not able to travel by train, it’s best to share a Grab with your friends. 

The Music Run by CIMB is a rain or shine event but if extreme weather does occur, the event will be postponed until it is safe to continue. Please follow instructions provided by the Race Officials.

Your run bib is your entry ticket to the event, so please ensure you wear it proudly on the FRONT side of The Music Run by CIMB Event T-Shirt.

There is a new and improved running route for the 2019 edition of The Music Run by CIMB. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.

With an expected field of 20,000 runners, our aim is to get all participants on to the run course in a safe and timely manner. We do this by operating different Start Wave times for the different Race Categories.  Please refer to both your Registration Confirmation email and our website to ensure that you know exactly which Race Category you are in and what your Start Wave time is.  Please note you will only be allowed to run in your allotted Start Wave so please follow the set time and all instructions given by Race Officials.

We offer trophies, cash and partner products as prizes for the top 5 male and top 5 female finishers in the 5K Speed and the 10K Speed Race Categories. Only participants in the Speed categories are eligible for awards and all race winners will be verified by the Race Director, Timing Director and Kuala Lumpur Athletics Association (FTKLAA).

Finishers of all race categories will receive a Finisher’s Medal upon crossing the finish line. Finisher’s E-Certificates will be available for all TIMED runners and can be downloaded after the event from the results page of our website.

For TIMED runners (i.e. those in the Speed and Leisure categories with a timing chip), you will be able to access your official race time after the event on the results page of our website.

On the Run Course, complimentary water stations will be available at the 2.5km, 5km, 7.5km and finish line.  A finisher snack will be provided at the finish line. 

The entire ‘Sound Track’ run course is lined with speakers the whole way so you can run to the rhythm of the beat from start to finish. It’s an immersive running experience like no other!  The Official Race Day Playlist will be shared on our website and Facebook page immediately after the event.
