I was doing a 6km recovery run at the sport complex this evening when I bumped into Kevin Yuen, a fellow marathoner. He told me that he received an email from the organizer of the Borneo International Marathon (BIM), informing runners that the event for this year has been set for 2 May.
When I arrived home after the run, I rushed to my pc to check my email-box, and true enough, I, too, had an email from the organiser. So far, I have participated in 2 full marathons and several other shorter races, but I still would like to focus on achieving my personal best in the BIM. Last October, I managed a 04:40, so now I'm hoping to improve by at least 10 minutes to 04:30.
This announcement is still very fresh from the organiser; so much so that it has not even made the announcement in its own official website. However, I have checked with one of the Directors, Andrew Voon, and he confirmed the email shortly ago. Online registration will be opened beginning from 1 February!
