"we are happy to launch the second edition of the Allianz Pacer Run.We had such a great turnout last year that it was the easiest decision to have it for the second year running.We are more committed than ever in getting Malaysians outdoors and engaging in sporting activities and this has been evident through our initiatives with the Allianz Pacer Running Community with the fun run, coaching clinics and other activities held all year round." said Joseph Gross,CEO of Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad during the launch of the run at Menara Allianz Sentral in Kuala Lumpur.

"The whole idea behind the Allianz Pacer Run 2016 is to inspire more people to start running, start getting active and taking better care of their well-being," he added.
