August 23, 2014. A BIG day for all of us at Sutera Harbour Resort – the 14th Sutera Harbour 7K Sunset Charity Run. Having more than 10,000 runners congregate in one venue to run for a good cause in aid of our 7K Beneficiaries (Sabah Thalassaemia Society & Special Olympics Sabah) has been an amazing experience. It’s kind of surreal to be sitting down, writing this recap of our 7K Run.

Just before the kickoff, Guest of Honour YB Datuk Haji Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan, Minister of Youth & Sports Sabah led all of us into a minute of silence in remembrance of the passengers and crew of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.

One minute of silence for victims of MH17.

At 5.17pm, the fun run began with participants running, walking and catching up with others talking about their favourite topics. Before they knew it, they reached the glorious FINISH line.

But wait, it’s not over! All runners were treated to a post-run concert where a Zumba dance and 16 local talents took the stage. Stealing the lime-light was our youngest performer, Myra Lilly Aduk who took our hearts as she belted away to the tunes of Let It Go (Frozen) and Roar (Katy Perry).

Great Turnout For 7K Run!

Known as Sabah’s biggest charity event, we welcomed runners of all ages, size and abilities for our 13th Sutera Harbour 7K Sunset Charity Run last Saturday evening.

Although we experienced a heavy downpour just before noon, the sun miraculously came up at the right time and we saw more than 13,000 runners patiently waiting at the start line for the Run to begin.

A successful turnout on a beautiful day!

A beautiful day to run for a cause!

But before the Run began, the crowd was led with a warm-up session conducted by the Zumba Fitness Sabah (ZFS) team as the DJ pumped dance music in the air. Thousands of runners were flagged off at 5.17pm by the Deputy Permanent Secretary Mr. Panyuki Matta representing the Minister of Youth & Sports YB Datuk Haji Tawfiq bin Datuk Haji Abu Bakar Titingan.

The 7K Run begins..

Shortly after that, the second flag off was made by the Mayor of Kota Kinabalu YBhg Datuk Abidin Madingkir. Our Guest of Honour Mr. Panyuki Mata together with VVIPs YB Datuk Edward Yong, Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister and his wife YBhg Datin Mary Yong, Mr. Howie Roberts, GM of Sutera Harbour Marina Golf & Country Club and other invited guests accompanied children from our 7K Beneficiaries; Sabah Thalassaemia Society and Special Olympics Sabah in the 7K Run.

Non-participating runners were entertained with a 7K Carnival which began as early as 4.00pm. There were plenty of mouth-watering local and international delicacies, drinks, and game stalls setup on site. The deejays from ERA FM KK, MY FM KK and hitz.fm KK entertained the crowd as they awaited for the last batch of runners to return.

Cries of ‘Encore!’ were heard as Sabah’s local talents TAKT, Apiz Paschya, Theo, Vons, April, Pure Harmony, Hippocamps, Diary of Us, Dang Bandangs and Janrywine created a buzz with their energetic performances.

Here’s a video shared by ilovesabah.info that captured the 7K Run mood.
