The Borneo Marathon is the biggest run for charity event in Sabah and has over the last decade, dedicated itself to supporting a number of local charities by raising funds through runner participation. Each year, the marathon hosts thousands of local and international runners who come to Sabah to take part in the marathon, bringing with them their family and friends to cheer them on to the finish line.

Be behind the scenes and the first to see how this iconic marathon takes place by being a volunteer. There are opportunities in various areas including set up, race pack collection, water stations and more!

As a run-up to the Borneo Marathon, a half-marathon called the Borneo Half Marathon will be organised in February 2020.
