KUCHING, March 16: All Sarawakians are invited to run, walk, dance, and sweat with Hock Seng Lee (HSL) in the ‘La Promenade Fitness Weekend — Leading Healthy X-tive Lifestyles’ this May 7 to 8.
The event features Sarawak’s first half marathon since 2019 as well as 3km family walk, 5km fun run, competitive 10km and 21.1km categories, offering prizes worth almost RM10,000.
Discounted early-bird sign-up fees are as low as RM30 (3km/5km), RM40 (10km) and RM60 (21.1km) while corporate sign-ups can look forward to fees of RM140 to RM290 for a group of five.
HSL digital marketing manager Sophia Ong said HSL is subsiding registration fees to enable more to enjoy this event over Mother’s Day (May 8).
“We hope for a successful event, and we intend to turn the Fitness Weekend into a signature annual event for La Promenade Mall, like the recent Bonsai & Suiseki Championship,” she said in a statement today.
The 3km family walk is within La Promenade while the 5km and 10km runs include parts of the Kuching-Samarahan Expressway.
The half-marathon (21.1km) will see runners tackling a tougher route from the mall to the picturesque Tanjong Bako and back through La Promenade’s gated community.
The Fitness Weekend which is a collaboration with Grit Event Management, Sweat Factory, Studio 23, Rentap Muay Thai, City Jogger’s Club and the Sarawak government, will present a variety of other fitness activities as well.
X-tive will include free Zumba and yoga classes, Muay Thai demos by Rentap Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu demos by Studio 23 on both days from May 7 to 8.
Sweat Factory, a functional fitness centre in the mall, is organising ‘The Sweat Challenge’ including two competitions, one for the public and another an ‘invitational’ for professionals across Malaysia.
Its instructor Chai Kian Yew said there are 24 confirmed teams: six from Kuching, four from Sabah, five from Kuala Lumpur, three from Miri, and two teams each from Penang and Bintulu.
