Run long or run short: The choice is yours
Last year, the hugely successful Momentum Run was launched in Kuching. This year the organisers have decided to make the event even better. The main objective of this run is to prepare runners for the second edition of the Kuching Marathon that falls on 16th August 2015. As Kuching runners are well aware there are only a few events locally that go beyond 5km up to 10km each year. So those wanting to run longer will have to fly off to either Sabah or the peninsula. Now thanks to Momentum Run 2.0 runners can stay back in Kuching, run to their hearts contentment and be rewarded with medals and finisher t-shirts, and of course save lots of money. The common question I am always asked is when is the next run in Kuching. Well now the answer is for all to see because registration has opened for the series. However this year things get a little more exciting....
Like last year there will be four runs in the series. Unlike last year only one event t-shirt will be given for Momentum Run 2.0. This is when the participant signs up for Series 1 which will be held on 18th January 2015. The distance is 8km. Only 1,500 limited edition Brooks drifit t-shirts will be printed in the hot pink colour seen below. So for those who sign up late there is no guarantee the same colour will be available. Don't say you were not forewarned. The fee is only RM40 and for that the runner gets the t-shirt and upon completion of the run a medal too. Those who want to register can get the forms at RevRun Padungan, at the Brooks Concept Store at Green Heights Mall or at the CJC Thursday Night Run registration desk.
Now the question is, which run is right for you? This year there will be not one but two categories. The runner is asked to plan wisely. Those aiming to run the Half Marathon can opt for the Short Distance Category which consists of 8km, 12km, 16km and 21km. Those who complete the 21km will get a exclusive finisher t-shirt. However if a runner is aiming for the Full Marathon then they should sign up for the Long Distance Category, which consists of 8km, 20km, 25km and 30km. Please note that those who finish the distances mentioned in both categories will be awarded medals. All four medals in the series can be fitted into a special giant medal. While those who complete the 30km will also get an exclusive finisher t-shirt. Those who sign up for all FOUR Series before 15th December 2014 will be entitled to a free Brooks Sling Bag and Shoe Discount Voucher.
