If you think year 2017 has had enough of running activities in Malaysia Borneo, well, you’re wrong. The Tip of Borneo Sunset Run is back again this year, adding to the list of all the marathon runs we have had so far this year!
Here are a few of the other marathon activities held annually in Sabah:
- Borneo International Marathon
- TMBT Ultra Trail Marathon
- Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon
- Sabah Adventure Challenge
The Tip of Borneo Sunset Run was organized by Event Finder KK and kicked off at the iconic Tanjung Simpang Mengayau at 4pm local time on the 23rd of September 2017 (Saturday).
Generally known as the “Tip of Borneo”, it is located at Kudat and is the most northern point of Sabah in Borneo Island. In traditional language of Rungus is “Tanjung Simpang Mengayau”, which means “the junction to the battle at the tip”.
Here is a vlog recorded by one of the participants:
The “tip” is in the Malaysian state of Sabah. Most people associate Borneo as a land filled with rainforests, much of which is rapidly disappearing. Sabah apparently has the greatest percentage of rainforests still remaining on the island.
This run is set to be one of the most scenic runs of the year with a breath-taking vistas and lush scenery of the South China Sea and Sulu Sea and waves crashing along Kalampunian beach.
What else to add to the run as the icing on the cake? The sun setting in the horizon creates a backdrop like no other. The sunset at the finishing line is definitely the best reward at the end of the day.
After the run, you can take the chance to go on a holiday in Sabah to enjoy the wonderful scenery and nature provided by Mother Nature on the Land Below The Wind. Check out our Sabah tour packages at SarawakBorneoTour.com on our website and book with us now!
