Kuching (Sarawak), Friday, 17 May 2019 – Speaking on season five of the ‘CMS Tribal Run’, CMS Group Chief Executive Officer – Corporate, Dato Isaac Lugun said, “When we first launched this run, we wanted to raise money for charities and the local communities, in a fun and unique way. The ‘CMS Tribal Run’ has seen thousands of people take part, helping raise money, while dressed in their traditional regalia. Truly showing off Sarawak’s beauty and diversity.”
“At CMS, we are very proud that the CMS Tribal Run is among the very few, if not the only run in Sarawak where 100% of the registration fees are given to charities and the local communities” added Dato Isaac.
This year, the ‘CMS Tribal Run’ will be expanded to cover two zones, to allow even more people to do their bit, raise money and at the same time have fun.
The first flag-off will take place at the Marina Park, Miri on Sunday, 7 July 2019. The Miri event is a 5 km fun run/walk and features many attractive prizes to be won by the top 5 men and women runners.
The second flag-off will be at Wisma Mahmud, Kuching on Sunday, 4 August 2019. For the Kuching event, there will be three categories – 3 km and 5 km fun run/walk and a 10 km competitive race. The top 10 men and women finishers for the 10 km race in Kuching will each receive a prize.
Entry fees for the 3 km, 5 km fun run/walk are RM40.00 and RM45.00 respectively, while for the 10 km competitive race is RM50.00. All categories come with a specially-designed t-shirt and a finisher’s medal.
True to the theme, participants are also encouraged to “Go Tribal”, dressing creatively to showcase the cultural diversity that forms the solidarity and community that is uniquely Sarawak. Prizes will be given to the top 10 most creatively-dressed men and women runners. Apart from race and best outfit prizes, there will also be many lucky draws for grabs.
