National Police Chief Releases Runners for Kemala Run 2024 at ICE BSD

progresifjaya.id, TANGSEL – National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo opened the Kemala Run 2024 event at ICE, BSD, South Tangerang, Sunday, (9/6) 2024. At 05.45 WIB, the National Police Chief Listyo Sigit raised a fast start flag to send off the runners in the Half Marathon category as far as 21 km.

Apart from the Half Marathon category released by the National Police Chief, the Kemala Run 2024 also includes three other categories. The 10K category was released by the TNI Commander, General TNI Agus Subiyanto, then the 5K runner category was released by the General Chairperson of Bhayangkari, Juliati Sigit Prabowo and the non-competition runners in the Disability category were released by the Deputy Chief of Bhayangkari, Mrs. Evi Agus Andrianto.

Also competing were the Kids Dash entertainment numbers for distances of 100, 200 and 300 meters which were released by the Chair of the Central Management of the Kemala Bhayangkari Foundation, Diana Ahmad Dofiri.

The 2024 Kemala Run will be the third event of this event. Previously, the Tour of Kemala was held in Belitung and Banyuwangi in 2022 and 2023.

This year, the activity was attended by 10 thousand participants, both local and foreign. The participants consisted of national and international athletes, running fans, the running community, as well as the extended Police family from all over Indonesia.

Chair of the 2024 Kemala Run Committee, Winta Wahyu Widada, in her statement explained that the route traversed by the 2024 Kemala Run participants had been internationally verified by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).

“So the certificates given to participants running the 21K, 10K and 5K Half Marathons are also internationally standardized,” said the wife of the Head of Criminal Investigation, Commissioner General of Police Wahyu Widada.

It was said that his party also deliberately invited people with disabilities to enliven the Kemala Run 2024 event. Meanwhile, the run which was participated in by children in the Kids Dash category, continued Winta, was to support government programs.

“There is a Kids Dash category to promote sports from an early age in accordance with the government program,” he said again.

He hopes that the Kemala Run 2024 event will be able to increase public interest in sports, especially running.

“We hope that public interest in this sport will be very large. We also hope to be able to hold competitions in other sports such as tennis and volleyball under the Tour of Kemala in the following years,” he said at the end of the statement. (Bembo)
