Come Explore the Biggest Island in the Heart of the ASEAN Region: Sarawak Marathon 2015 Bintulu

Once a small, quiet fishing town, Bintulu has blossomed into a beautiful and fast-developing area, nestled in central Sarawak and Borneo. Geographically central in the ASEAN region, it is befitting, then, that Malaysia, the chair of ASEAN in 2015, invites its ASEAN neighbours to this large island town.

On Sunday, 22 March 2015, you'll have the option to run a Full marathon, Half marathon, 10km Corporate Challenge, 10km Open or a 5km Fun Run. Marathoners will get to relish in scenic views of the island's river and sea shore.

Whichever distance you're running, you can unwind post-race by enjoying the sunset and taking in the sea breeze at the Tanjung Batu Beach. If you're still buzzing with energy, you might want to shop around at their Pasar Malam, a lively nightly affair.

There's still lots to do pre- and post-race! You could blitz through the shopping complexes here or explore Similajau National Park, one of the most gorgeous and unspoilt golden beaches in the country. From visiting old-school Kampung Jepak—a fishermen's village—and architectural amazing places of worship, to having a go at the Bintulu Golf Course, there's something for everyone!
