Saturday, 28th May – Over 3,000 fitness enthusiasts and foodie lovers attended the first inaugural Sunsuria Foodiethon event in Malaysia, organized by Sunsuria.

The event started at 7.30am with a joint flag off of fun run and fun cycle around the surrounding neighborhood of Salak Tinggi, Putrajaya South, including the 525-acres of freehold land of Sunsuria City, the new integrated master-planned smart township development expected to be launched in phases over the span of 8 years. Part of the running and cycling route scenery include the majestic view of the new Xiamen University Campus Malaysia, China’s first overseas university in Malaysia located in the heart of the Sunsuria City township.
