ABOUT MOMENTUM RUN SERIES
The “Momentum Run” began in 2014 when Kuching’s 1st International Marathon came about. 2018 will see the Momentum Run entering its 5th edition. The concept behind the Momentum Run was initiated by a group of running enthusiasts from the City Joggers’ Club (CJC) with the main objective of helping Kuching runners train towards their 1st Full or Half Marathon.
Initially, the Momentum Run is not intended to be a competitive event. This is mainly because its primary objective is to “build up momentum” towards the Full or Half Marathon the particular runner is seeking to participate in.
However, with the introduction of Cat City Marathon in 2017, the 3rd series of the events will offer prizes in the 10km, 21km & 42km categories. The 5km is a fun run event.
The 5th edition of the Momentum Run consists of 3 series where every series will be more challenging, as the mileage towards Half and Full Marathon increases. All runners will be awarded with finisher’s medal for the categories they completed within the cut-off time.
These are the categories offered under the Momentum Run 5 series:
Momentum 5.1 – 5KM & 10KM (Short Category) & 15km (Long Category)
Momentum 5.2 – 5KM & 10KM (Short Category), 20KM & 30KM(Long Category)
Momentum 5.3 – 5KM (Fun Run), 10KM(Short Category), 21KM & 42KM(Long Category)
