Jakarta will host a running competition in March with a disco twist to it. The event’s organizer, Brian Syarif Production (BSPro), said that it will be a 5-kilometer run throughout Ancol Beach, North Jakarta.
“[I] guarantee, this event will provide a different sensation,” said the CEO of BSPro, Febrian Nugraha, on Thursday, January 5, 2017.
Febrian said that the ‘disco run’ is a blend of exercise, music technology, and disco at the end of the event. The event is made to accommodate run enthusiasts, the music industry, and disco fans. “Its purpose is to stay healthy while still adjusting to modern lifestyles,” he said.
He is positive that the event can attract the participations of the Jakartans and people living nearby. He aims to attract 2,000 participants.
The organizer will present the event in a sparkling nuance accompanied by disco music along Ancol’s beach shore after the run is over. “Participants are allowed to wear costumes or other supporting attributes that correspond with the event’s theme,” Febrian said.
The prizes will be split into two categories; men and women. The first winners will receive a Rp5 million cash prize each, the runner-ups and the third winners will receive Rp3 million and Rp2 million each, respectively.
There will also be a Rp1 million prize for participants with the best costume. Every participant that crosses the finish line will receive an exclusive finisher’s tee.
