About This Race

Inspired by the idea of a drinkable I.V. Solution, POCARI SWEAT is developed by Otsuka Pharmaceutical, Japan, and is the closest composition to your human body fluid, for proper hydration of people to sustain healthy conditions; physically and mentally.The inaugural race in Yangon in 2016 attracted 3,000 runners to race together, and has grown to more than 4,000 last year.

This year, the race in Myanmar will see four main categories – the 21KM Competitive to target seasoned runners and INTERNATIONAL participation, the 10KM Competitive for amateur runners, 5KM Fun Run category for beginner runners to experience the event with a leisurely run. Not forgetting the NEW 8KM Fun Run for beginner runners who would like to challenge themselves further!

Through this race, participants will get to know the importance of hydration and other important factors when running. Running aside, there are also fringe activities post-race to engage both our partners and runners alike.
