BIM 2013 POSTPONED - Borneo International Marathon 2013

I feel it for BIM (Borneo International Marathon) committees. Their hard works, time spent, and energy to organize a superb marathon in Kota Kinabalu were challenged by the unexpected event. 

It's officially that BIM 2013 which schedule to held on 4 May 9:00pm now is postponed. A date will be advise later according to the race director email. 

Below is the attachment attached in the race director email sending to all participants where police advise race director to postpone the marathon.

Below are the message from race director:


My Dear Friends,

It is with great regret and sadness that I write this letter.

We received a letter from the Police (copy below) advising us to postpone the Borneo International Marathon.

We will advise you on the next date of the Borneo International Marathon which will be held in 2013. All entries will be deferred till then.

The Committee understands your disappointment and we feel exactly the same way too.  The stress, the hard work, and the time we have had to put in has resulted in tears and heart wrenching reflections of our volunteers, supporters and Committee. We have tried our best against all odds.

Finally, I would like to thank all our supporters, sponsors, the Police, Ministry of Youth & Sports, Ministry of Tourism and Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu for all their help and encouragement.

Meantime, participants who have registered may still collect their race pack at 6th floor, Suria Sabah Shopping Mall on 2nd to 4th May between 10am to 6pm.  For more updates, please check our Facebook page and the website at

Thank you.
Race Director
