Running at night is not as bad as it seems. Sure, it may be easier to immediately fall onto your choices to watch television at the end of a stressful day, but what better way to de-stress and pre-bed yourself with running off into a beautiful sunset or basking yourself in the cold evening atmosphere. Running at night helps to break down your stress level by two folds, and it can really end a very bad day with a good note.
Some of the best races in Malaysia happen in the evening or at night. For that reason alone, it is time to start running at night with your friends and families. Hence, to save you time, we have compiled a list of the top upcoming night runs in Malaysia just for you.
