“With relaxed SOPs, now is the perfect time to put fitness first,” HSL executive director Tony Yu said.
Just like the recent Sarawak Bonsai Open Championship, La Promenade Mall would make the Fitness Weekend an annual affair, he added.
“It brings us joy to see youths, families, across all races come together for a great time out. We hope the public sees value in the community centric direction we have taken.“ Joining the La Promenade Fitness Weekend are Sunway Medical Centre (offering free sports massage and traditional complementary medicine consultation), Milo and Green Leaf (both giving out free drinks).
Four local sports equipment suppliers joined a mini-expo, while Dayak Daily and TeaFM were official media partners. Martial demos were by Rentap Muay Thai and Studio 23.
The talented team from Grit Event Management was the run’s co-organiser.
“We’re honoured to be part of the first ever La Promenade Fitness Weekend to jump start the running
community in Kuching. For the past two years, there has been a lack of competitive running events,” Grit Event founder Awang Saifeluddin said.
“La Promenade Mall is taking the lead to revitalise the running community. Their running route is scenic with beautiful landscape thus providing good opportunity for families to spend a healthy and active weekend.”
All four categories of the runs included La Promenade gated community, famous for its lavish landscaping of over 1,800 pine trees, 25,000 tea leaf shrubs, giant Bonsais and tecoma plants.
