According to a press release, Sarawak Energy said this event aims to foster a greater sense of community and pride among event-goers as they commemorate Kuching’s elevation to city status in 1988.

Sarawak Minister of Utility and Telecommunication (MUT) Dato Sri Julaihi Narawi has been invited as the guest-of-honour to perform the flag-off ceremony of the event.

Flag-offs for the run will be at 4.30am for the 21KM Half Marathon, 6am for the 10KM Run and 6.45am for the 5KM Run.

The top 15 finishers for the 21KM Half Marathon and 10KM categories can look forward to attractive cash prizes totalling up to RM39,000.

Additionally, there is a special reward for the top 15 male and female finishers in this category, who will each receive an exclusive top 15 finisher’s t-shirt.

Proceeds from all registrations will be donated to charitable bodies to support those in need.

In 2023, the Sarawak Energy Isthmus Run raised a total amount of RM176,000 which was equally distributed to selected charitable bodies.
