About Borneo Half Marathon

WHAT IS THE BORNEO HALF MARATHON 2020?

Running a half marathon is the perfect introduction to the world of long-distance running especially for those planning on running their first full marathon. The Borneo Half Marathon was inspired by the thousands of runners who turn up for the annual Borneo Marathon with dreams of completing the challenging 42km course before the cut-off time. An essential step to achieving this is to run one or maybe a few shorter races to condition yourself to complete the full distance.

HOW IS THE COURSE?

The Borneo Half Marathon is a relatively flat 21km course that winds through the streets of Kota Kinabalu, its coastline and fringes that include some of its most iconic city landmarks. This new route has been designed to give you a fresh perspective of Kota Kinabalu, one of the most scenic waterfront cities and popular running destinations in Malaysia.

IS IT DIFFERENT FROM THE 21KM DISTANCE IN THE BORNEO MARATHON?

Yes, absolutely! The Borneo Half Marathon is a new race route and is exclusively for the 21km distance. You will train for this distance, you will sweat for this distance and you will conquer this distance! It is going to be a fast course for seasoned runners but for those attempting it for the first time, it will an eye-opening experience on how much it will take to be a full-fledge marathon runner.

So, whether you want to achieve your personal best in the half marathon distance or to gear up for a full marathon, the Borneo Half Marathon is the race to run this 23 February 2020.
