Over 3,500 participants set to compete in run

22nd August, 2019

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: More than 3,500 runners are expected to take part in the fourth edition of the Pisompuruan Run 2019, which will be happening at the Kota Kinabalu Sports Complex in Likas, near here, on September 16.

Organising chairman Felix Joseph Saang was happy to note that the run received a positive response from the public at large.

“This time around, the number of runners will be more compared to the last edition of the run. So far, we have received about 3,500 entries,” said Felix, after chairing the organising committee meeting recently.

The run, besides promoting a healthy lifestyle, also serves as a remembrance of the events that led to the formation of Malaysia.

It is organised by the Yayasan Kepimpinan Momogun (Momogun Leadership Foundation). Felix, who is also UPKO Youth chief, expressed his gratitude to his organising committee for the hard work in promoting the event.

To make the run merrier, the organiser will also be holding side events during the run.

“There will be several kinds of activities to be held prior to the start of the run at 4pm until the run concludes.

“Among them will be an exhibition by the State Museum in relation to the formation of Malaysia, food trucks as well as food stalls.

“There will also be a lucky draw where the main prize is a motorcycle.

“And there are many more attractive lucky draw prizes to be won,” he added.

“We will also have local artistes coming to enliven the run … among them are Rey Kimara, Felix Agus and many more,” said Felix.

Deputy Chief Minister-cum-Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau, who is UPKO president, is expected to grace the flag-off of the run.
