INAUGURAL LAZADA RUN TO ADD FITNESS TO LIFE ACROSS SOUTHEAST ASIA
SINGAPORE, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Southeast Asia's pioneer eCommerce platform, Lazada, today announced its inaugural running event across the region. The first ever running event organized by an eCommerce platform in Southeast Asia, the Lazada Run will flag off in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, before making its way to Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and culminating in the final race in Singapore.
Working with PUMA as the exclusive apparel sponsor, there will be three race categories in each country, including 5km, 10km and 21km races. To inject more fitness elements for all ages, the Lazada Run will also introduce an additional race, the Kids Dash, which will cater to families with young children (aged 5 – 12 years) who are keen to participate in a fun group activity.
The Lazada Run demonstrates Lazada's commitment to adding fitness to life and celebrates what customers in each country have added to life. To recreate the joy and excitement of shopping on Lazada, runners will be able to participate in experiential activities from their favourite brands, while enjoying exclusive offers from the start to the finish line. For example, shoppers will be able to register on the Lazada app for a chance to participate in the Cart Dash events during race days. As part of the event, lucky runners will stand a chance to win their basket of items. Each race will introduce an exciting variation of the event mechanic, which promises to be fun and entertaining for participants.
"Lazada Run was founded on the commitment to offer memorable experiences beyond that online purchase. We want to make Lazada Run an event where we can grow our digital reach and connect with our customers as we inspire and enable them to add more to life, starting with fitness," said Marcus Chew, Chief Marketing Officer, Lazada Group.
"PUMA is proud to be the official apparel sponsor for the inaugural Lazada Run. As a global sports company, we strongly believe that the power of fitness can make a great impact on people's lives. This partnership truly gives us an opportunity to illustrate our deep commitment to push the race culture forward.
