Malaysia is a partnership between 2 people, Wan Yew Leong
and Jamie Pang with a strong passion for the sport of running
and everything linked to it. With the Road
Runners Club of America as benchmark and inspiration,
and recognizing that there is a running community in the country
without web presence, Runners Malaysia sets out to provide
a "voice" for these group.
By having a basic website
these groups, be they fledgling setups, informal running groups
or established clubs and associations, a wider audience can
be achieved to promote the sport. We want to make it easier
for these entities to have up and running (pun intended!)
a website that's purposeful and no frills. After all we acknowledge
that running and not web design are our strengths.
A Little Bit About...
Wan Yew Leong
Wan is an accountant by
training and currently with the risk management department
of a local bank. He is married with 4 school going children.
His focus in running is very much about keeping fit, managing
traffic jam and balancing his life. He always look forward
to participate in the holiday runs, both within and outside
the country. Until recently Wan has been heavily involved
in the Pacesetters Athletic Club Malaysia (PACM) in several
If Wan is the Money Man, Jamie is the IT Man. He's into his fourth renaissance as a runner. Jamie has run over 25 marathons
including some World Marathon Majors like the 2008 ING New York City Marathon and Tokyo Marathon. His personal best timing of under 4 hours was recorded in the Gold Coast Airport Marathon,
and strongly believes that he'll reach his peak as a runner in his
forties. Besides training and maintaining blogs about running, Jamie
also does regular gear reviews for leading sporting brands.
Jamie has also served in the PACM and was responsible for
the revamp of their website. Jamie's personal blog is at jamiepang.com/blog.
We inspire and encourage Malaysians to enjoy a healthier
lifestyle via running. It is not a complicating mission
statement but to get some tangible results in having
younger Malaysians taking up running as their regular
exercise program, we would need support from others,
fellow members of PACM, sponsors, the media and of course
young Malaysians who wish to run but need some encouragements.
We target to start working on our plans with setting
the website as the first milestone.
