We all in Kuching are waiting eagerly for the Kuching Marathon on 17th August 2014. However before that there is another important run in Kuching - the Spring Live Active Run on 15th June 2014. This run is in it's third year and has grown from strength to strength. Click here to see my post on the 2012 event and here to see my post on the 2013 event. Those wanting to run a half marathon need look no further than Spring. Those outside Sarawak looking for a runcation why not come during Visit Sarawak Year? There will also be a 10km run, 5km Fun Run, and 1km Kids Dash. This year a new category has been added - the 21km Ekiden Relay - teams of four will compete in a relay race the entire 21km route. Runners will be competing for prizes worth more than a toral of RM30,000! Furthermore all particiapants, excluding the 5km category, can look forward to exclusive medals made from zinc alloy. Each participant will be given goodie bag filled with limited edition Runner's vest, vouchers, and products.
In giving back to the community, the Spring Live Active Run 2014 targets at raising at least RM45,000 for three Sarawak-based charities. They are the proud to support the Sarawak Hospice Society, Habitat for Humanity and the Sarawak Breast Cancer Support Group (SBCSG).
