The Spring Live Active Run first started in 2012, with only 1,600 participants. But at the time it was already the biggest community run ever held in Sarawak in nearly a decade and raised RM50,000 for charity. Last year, tHe Spring organized a 2nd run and attracted 3,200 participants, doubling the previous run and raising RM60,000 for charity. This year, the organizers – The Spring Shopping Mall, TEEM Event & Exhibition Management and supported by Kuching Marathon Association – hope to attract at least 4,500 participants from all walks of life as well as from overseas. Last year saw over 200 participants from 16 different countries participating in Live Active Run! And for the convenience of runners from outstation, the organizers have included an option for participants to have their race packs shipped to them on the website.

This year’s Live Active Run will benefit two charities, Habitat for Humanity (Kuching) and the Sarawak Hospice Society. Habitat for Humanity (Kuching) is an international organization whose goal is to transform lives by creating safe, secure and affordable homes for the poor. And the Sarawak Hospice Society is focused on providing a compassionate method of caring for terminally ill people. They respond to the unique needs of the terminally ill by providing physical and emotional care to dying persons and their families.

Participants can also look forward to a new category this year, called the 21km Ekiden Relay. This is a competitive team event. Teams of four must consist of at least one male and one female and will compete with other teams in a relay race that will cover the entire 21km route. This is a great category to participate with friends or workmates and requires some teamwork and strategy to win!

Live Active Run is also open to corporations, companies, organizations and education centers. Free delivery of race packs and a special commemorative plague will be given to registrations over 50. Just contact tHe Spring Advertising & Promotions team on 082-238111.

Live Active Run 2014 is brought to Kuching by The Spring Shopping Mall, co-organized by TEEM Event & Exhibition Management and supported by Kuching Marathon Association and EventFeet. The official attire sponsor is Coneli Sports and official fitness center is Level Up Fitness.
