Bursa Malaysia Bull Charge 2015

The New Straits Times is covering this event again because parent Media Prima Group is partnering Bursa Malaysia's famed charity marathon. It takes place today in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Bursa Bull Charge tracks a 5km run following Kuala Lumpur’s Capital Market Trail, a route throughout the Central Business District that passes the headquarters of many of Malaysia’s capital market players in our community, a reminder of the sustainability of the marketplace.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin shows the way to 'Fit Malaysia' in running the 1.5km CEO race as well as the 5km individual race. WOW!!

"I hope many more corporates will get involved in fitness and sports. This year, our national agenda include the launch of National Sports Day on the 10th October to spur a more active lifestyle among Malaysians," he said.

Among the 1,800-odd enthusiastic participants from the capital market community include government agencies, regulators, brokers, listed companies, traders, remisiers, trading partners and the media. There's a special category of relay run among young executives.

Bursa Malaysia chief executive officer Datuk Tajuddin Atan said, "This year our races included young executives from the Ministry of Youth and Sports. This is very encouraging and we're heartened by their enthusiasm."
