Miri Marathon 2018
It’s been many years ago since Miri had its last marathon event which was organized by Holiday Inn. In Year 2015, Bulatan Park Runners’ Club had taken the initiative by organizing Miri Charity Run 2015 and since then it had lighted the spark of running events in Miri. There are events normally covering the race distance around 10km with each event participant might range from 500 pax up to 2000 pax!
In 2016, Imperial Run had offered runners the distance of Half Marathon (21km), 10km and 5km. The participants were from West Malaysia, Sabah & Sarawak, foreign runners from Brunei, Singapore, Germany, South Africa, UK, US and etc. The event attracted more than 10 Kenyan to come over and compete. Imperial Run is the first ever event in Miri that introduced the utility of Mylaps Timing System, which enabled the accuracy of timing up to second. Then the systems were used for Miri City Day Half Marathon.
In 2017, Miri Marathon was successfully organized by Miri Marathon Association, a non-government organization (NGO) that taking interest in marathon events specifically in Miri. In fact, Miri Marathon is one of the Great Borneo Series (GBS) held alongside Kuching Marathon and Borneo International Marathon.
Undeniably, the running community in Miri is growing exponentially! Miri has a strategic location to conduct a long distance run with scenic view along the route. The route of 42km will bring participants to pass through the city centre, sea view, villages and etc. We strive to achieve better organized event with more systematic management.
