Pocari Sweat Run

Entering its eighth year, the Pocari Sweat Run Indonesia 2021 will again be held in a hybrid manner with strict health protocols. This time the activity took place from Gedung Sate, Bandung City and Kota Baru Parahyangan, West Bandung.

Puspita Winawati as Marketing Director of PT Amerta Indah Otsuka revealed that this event is a form of consistency to create healthy Indonesian people by exercising, one of which is running. This year, the implementation of the Pocari Sweat Run Indonesia 2021 prioritizes the safety of runners by adapting very strict health protocols.

“In offline activities , this activity is followed by a limited number of runners and the condition is that offline participants have carried out a second dose of vaccination. Not only that, they are also equipped with negative test results before entering the area and a verified Peduli Protect application,” said Puspita in a press release.

Puspita added that the start is divided into two locations, namely Gedung Sate with the 10 kilometer distance running category and Kota Baru Parahyangan with the half marathon and marathon categories . The release of runners is also carried out in stages with a maximum of 50 people in each group with a break of three minutes.

After running, there are no offline entertainment events and runners are required to leave the location immediately. This offline activity can be felt directly online. The real-time flag-off for the three time zones of Indonesia was specifically organized to accommodate runners from Aceh to Papua. West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil revealed that this event encourages staying productive even in the midst of a pandemic. “Pocari Sweat Run Indonesia 2021 can be an example for other activities that will be carried out offline and online , especially sports in implementing strict health protocols,” he added.
