Jakarta, 12 September 2018. PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk (“Bank Danamon”) today announced the return of Danamon Run, a running event with a unique concept in which participants can choose their own finish run while running. This one-of-a kind running event, a first of its kind in Indonesia, will be held on 25 November 2018 in ICE BSD, South Tangerang. Danamon Run will offer running distances from 5Km, 10 Km, 15 Km to 21 Km (Half Marathon) and will be held in observance of the National Health Day on 12 November 2018.
“The enthusiasm among participants in last year’s event is very high. This has inspired us to hold Danamon Run again. This year, we ask beginners and professionals alike to test their abilities by offering a longer distance. Still with “Saatnya Pegang Kendali” (It’s time to take control) as its tagline, runners can choose their own finish lines,” said Michellina Triwardhany, Vice President Director, Bank Danamon.
Choose Your Own Finish Line
Danamon Run offers a choice for participants to decide their finish line during the race. The difference with last year’s event is that Danamon Run 2018 will offer a choice to finish at a greater distance, which is 21 Km, giving runners a chance to complete a half marathon. Each distance provides scenic route and unique challenge that tests the ability of each runner. Runners who cross any finish line will receive a finisher medal. Additionally, the fastest finishers will receive attractive cash prizes in the form of a Danamon savings account. The event offers a total of more than IDR 200 million in prizes.
The event is open for professional or novice runners, who can choose from the General individual category or the Master category for runners who are over 45 years of age. An early bird registration price with limited slot was offered on 13 August 2018 and bought by around 750 participants. On 14 August 2018, registration was opened with a special price for Danamon customers at IDR 200,000 and IDR 250,000 for non-customers. Runners can also register as a group for IDR 750,000 for five people.
