In conjunction with Kuala Lumpur 2017 (KL2017), the Torch Run will traverse the country from the 14th of May 2017 in Johor and end in Kuala Lumpur on the 12th of August 2017.
The torchbearers will be selected to represent the diversity that is Malaysia.
The Torch Run will travel through selected iconic places across the country, making the run unique as this has never been done before in the history of the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games.
All citizens of Malaysia and Southeast Asia residing/studying/working in Malaysia are welcome to participate. No participation fee will be charged.
Applicants who are interested to be torch bearers in their respective States may apply through the website.
The high point of the run will be when the torch is brought into the Bukit Jalil National Stadium to light up the Games cauldron at the opening ceremony of KL2017 on 19 August 2017. The fire will remain lit until the closing ceremony, when it will then be put out to mark the end of the Games.
The Torch Run has been part of the SEA Games and the ASEAN Para Games tradition and is in line with other major global sporting events. The modern-day Torch Run is symbolic, and highlights the inclusiveness of sports and the role it plays in uniting communities.
