Welcome to Runners Wild folks! We created this race to take runners out to routes and terrains that are basically hidden gems in South East Asia. More importantly we are using our runs to help the communities in the areas that we run. Funds raised from the run via mainly sponsorships will go into helping communities promote tourism in their areas (we set up their FB pages and websites and later train locals to manage the platforms), help communities repair bridges (this is an issue out in the interiors of Sarawak) and later engage in more community work such as English programs and some other infrastructure assistance dependent specifically to the communities.
Our first run is going to be in Bario, in the Kelabit Highlands in Sarawak, Malaysia. We chose it simply because its a beautiful place, nestled in the mountains of Sarawak and for runners it would be a great experience with the much cooler climate to run in especially for runners from the warmer climates of South East Asia.
We want our runners to engage with the communities and we also would like for you all to take a part of the communities back with you after each race.
Thank you again for stopping by our little space here on social media and we hope to see in you in the Wild soon!
OUR BARIO RACE IS LIMITED TO 50 RUNNERS ONLY.
