Borneo International Marathon 2018

The first marathon in Sabah was held in 1984 and it was called the Daily Express Sabah Marathon. The next marathon was held 23 years later in 2008 and it was called the Borneo International Marathon (BIM).

BIM was organized by Championship Sport Events Sdn. Bhd., helmed by Mr. Andrew Voon as the Race Director as well as the person instrumental in organizing the Borneo International Marathon. The first BIM had three categories, 10km, 21km and 42km and was participated by a mere 529 runners.

On June 18 2011 the running community was deeply shocked and saddened by Andrew’s sudden demise. To continue with his legacy and the event, his running group successfully registered a running club called the Kinabalu Running Club (KRC), which has undertaken the task of organizing the next Borneo International Marathons.

Race Bib swapping is illegal. This is especially important as emergency contacts are registered with the bib. This will also ensure that there is no cheating. If this should happen the runner will be immediately disqualified and the identity will be posted to all running events.
For security reasons the Police, Dewan Bandaraya Enforcement Agency, Officials and Course Mashalls will not allow runners without a running bib. They will be stopped and taken off the course immediately for further action. Offenders will have their pictures taken and details shared to all Races.
