Tough challenge awaits outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts

KOTA KINABALU: With less than 10 days to go, the second edition Sungkadon Obstacle Sprint Run which will take place on March 26 at Kg Sungkadon/Novoung in Papar offers outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts participating, a proper and tough challenge.

Steve Johnny Mositun, Casero Events managing director cum organising chairman said that the run going into its second year will be slightly more challenging compared to last year to add some excitement to the around 400 participants.

“I am pleased that we have reached our target of 400 participants, whereby this year we will add some exciting challenges for them.

“Our run is slightly less challenging as compared to the famous world renowned Spartan Obstacle Race, yet the most important thing is organising such a run will give Sabahans the chance to experience and have an idea of what this sport demands,” he said, when contacted, yesterday.

Steve also added that the run will boost the Papar area’s tourism growth through sports as the sheer number of participants from outside the district joining the event will bring good economic prospects.

The run will have two categories available namely the Men/Women Elite Open and Open Fun Run where participants have to tackle several disciplines such as the rope climbing, wall spider web and traditional sling shot throughout the run’s six-kilometre race distance.

Prizes for the Elite category are as following, the champion will cash in RM500 plus gifts, second until fifth-placed finishers will receive RM300 plus gifts, RM200 plus gifts and RM150 plus gifts and RM100 plus gifts, while sixth to 10th placing will bring back sponsors’ gifts.

Registered participants can collect their race packs and bib numbers at Sportmart Suria Sabah on March 24 (Friday) starting at 1pm to 8pm and also on March 25 at the same venue from 10am to late evening.
