Run in your work clothes for charity!
The Rat Race Run now not only has a 7km run but also a 4km walk, for those who feel they need to take things at a leisurely pace. What better way to welcome Labour Day then to run/walk through Kuching City in your work clothes at night? This is the very first time that such an event is held in our town. Since it is held at 7pm on 30th April 2014, participants can party hearty after the run and not worry about crawling to work the next day. What's more this run is for charity too. The organisers have chosen the Hope.Place or Persatuan Kebajikan Harapan Kuching to be the beneficiary. Not only that, there will be lots of prizes and also lucky draws, and notable runners dressed in drag, for charity. Runners can donate as little as RM5 to see them in action on the day itself. Those who finish the run will be given a beer token. Non-drinkers will be provided with Gatorade. Please refer also refer to the Facebook page on this event. Please note that walk-in registration on the event day itself will be accepted.
