Can I cycle, roller-blade or use any other mode of motorized or mechanical vehicle?

No. Wheelchairs may be allowed, subject to organisers’ approval and specific rules.

Can I follow the race if I am not a participant (in my car or by bicycle)?

Non participants are strictly not allowed on the race routes, either on foot or by any other means. The race routes will be blocked and controlled by the relevant authorities for the use of the participants only. No pets are allowed.

What are the types of re-hydration fluids are available and where are the locations?

Water stations start at 3Kms after the start point and are available every 3Kms. Isotonic drink stations start at 6Kms and are available every 3 Kms.

What do I get as BIM 2019 runner?

At the race pack collection, runners will be given their goodie bags, running bibs & timing chips. Upon completing the race within the respective category time limits, runners for all categories will get a finisher’s medal, finisher’s tee-shirt (only for full marathon) and finisher’s e-certificate available online.

What if I am injured during the race and far from any medial support station?

There will be medical back-up crews on motorcycles and bicycles who will have radio communication with the stations and they can be identified by their vests with the words “Medical Support”, “Marshalls” or “Officials”. Please stop them for assistance.

What is the average Temperature during the race?

Generally throughout the year, weather in Kota Kinabalu ranges from 29°C during rainy/cloudy days to 34-35°C during hot sunny days.

When and where can I pick up my race pack?

To be update soon. Stay tune with us.

Am I able to change race categories e.g from 10KM to half marathon, from a full marathon to a half marathon or vice versa?

No. Changes are not allowed and no refunds will be provided if you are unable to participate for any reason whatsoever. You will still be entitled to your registration pack but there will be no timing chip and you will also not be entitled to any lucky draws at the end of the race.

Why is there a time limit on the marathon?

Participants are strongly encouraged to finish the race within the stipulated time to relief traffic controls and to facilitate the prize giving and closing ceremony without distractions. Only full marathoners who have not completed the race after the full race time will be picked up by sweeper or medical support vehicles.
