About The Run

The Bungwak Run is organised by a group of Malay College Old Boys to create a long-term event that would benefit MCKK and its Alumni.

Bungwak Run is a Relay Run with 3 members in a team taking turns to complete 6 laps of the race course. Each runner will run 2 laps of the 1.6km (1 mile) route, making the overall distance 9.6km. Bungwak Run aims to create a fun morning that encourages a healthy lifestyle, camaraderie and teamwork, taking place early Sunday before the traditional Old Boys Weekend (OBW) rugby match every year.

The inaugural Bungwak Run was held in 2016 and the previous editions received overwhelming response from the participants and those who came back for OBW.
