In 1998, Kuala Lumpur became the first Asian city to host a Commonwealth Games. 12 years later, in 2010, the Commonwealth Games is returning to Asia, when Delhi hosts the XIX Commonwealth Games from 3rd to 12th October 2010. All sports fans and running enthusiasts are invited to participate in this very meaningful Fun Run to commemorate the XIX Commonwealth Games, which is only the second time being held in Asia. The entry fee is RM10/= per participant, who will get a very attractive 2010 Queen’s Baton Relay Souvenir T-shirt and a Participation Certificate. There will also be some lucky draw prizes. Entry forms are available from the Office of OCM and FTAAA, at Wisma OCM, Jalan Hang Jebat, Kuala Lumpur. OCM had organized similar Fun Runs for the Manchester 2002 Commonwealth Games Baton Relay at KLCC and the Beijing 2008 Olympic Torch Relay at Dataran Merdeka. Both the Fun Runs were very successful.
