I can see a lot of parents that bring their kids there for the run as well, couples holding hands while running. I Love Penang Run 2017 is truly a good event where family, friends and lovers are here out in the open to enjoy the event and stay healthy by running. It is a fun and nice event.

The event start early and sleep will definitely have to wait, haha ! The official flag off for the run is at 7.30 am but due to overwhelming participants which hit approximately around 10 thousand participant, the flag off is divided into 3 session which is 5 minutes apart from each flag off. Route covers the area of Georgetown.
