Kuching Marathon (KM) is an annual event which brings runners from all over the world to the beautiful city of Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
The event is a road race competition which consists of full marathon of 42KM (measured to international standard of 42.195KM), half marathon of 21KM, run of 10KM and 5KM respectively.
Despite its infancy, the 4th edition of Kuching Marathon which was inaugurated on 17 August 2014, is now an international road race recognized by Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) as listed in AIMS Race Calendar.
According to previous KM runners, KM is special because it is one of the few marathons in the world which gets the locals hyped up, and the route is excessively stunning despite it only being around Kuching City. It has somewhat become a family event for the people of Kuching as well with thousands joining in the fun, with kids and school children waking up early to cheer on the runners.
Aside from that, runners have also praised KM for their good and professional organisation, with some liking the fact that hotels in Kuching City are nearby enough to the starting/finish line, easy for them to rest once they are done.
