Medini, Iskandar Puteri, Johor, 2 May – Medini saw a strong crowd of 9,000 participants from Johor, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, the United States of America and Europe to countries across the region at the Sunway Iskandar Viper Challenge held on Sunday, 30 April 2017.
The second Sunway Iskandar Viper Challenge held in Medini, the heart of Iskandar Puteri, covers 15km with 18 mud-drenched obstacles and adrenaline-pumping challenges that pushed participants beyond their limits. The Viper Challenge is designed to foster a sense of camaraderie where participants constantly rely on their team to help navigate through the entire challenge. Those who have completed the race were given a medal and a t-shirt.
“Well done, Sunway Iskandar! We are thrilled with the success of this year’s Viper Challenge. Events like this help to increase the awareness of Medini at the international level, and will have a positive impact on local businesses, particularly the hospitality and food & beverage outlets that operate within the vicinity,” said Dr James Tee, who is the Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Medini Iskandar Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
“We were extremely honoured to have hosted 9,000 participants this year. The event, held for the second time in our Sunway Iskandar township, was flagged off at our residential mall, Citrine Hub – which is expected to open its doors in the fourth quarter of 2017. As a Master Community Developer, our focus is not only in building a township but also creating a balanced lifestyle for our community,” said Gerard Soosay, Chief Executive Officer of Sunway Iskandar Sdn Bhd.
Datuk Ir. Khairil Anwar Ahmad, President / Chief Executive Officer of Iskandar Investment Berhad added, “It is indeed exciting to see an array of local and international arts, music, film and sports events happening here in Iskandar Puteri. All these events help to promote and position Iskandar Puteri as an attractive and vibrant lifestyle destination of choice for both residents and travellers, foreign and domestic alike. Sunway’s initiative in bringing the Viper Challenge to Sunway Iskandar and Medini for the second time running marks another important achievement for Iskandar Puteri, and I applaud them for this accomplishment.”
