OSIM Sundown Marathon 2019: Asia’s Biggest Night Run on its Comeback Under New Management
Mark your calendars and save the date on June 1, 2019, for one of the most awaited running event that brings thousands of runners all over the world and the biggest night run in Asia – the OSIM Sundown Marathon 2019.
There will be a new management from next year, bringing together the incumbent organiser, F4U, in collaboration with Infinitus Productions to bring a fresh perspective to the event as they highlight its focus on inclusivity in sports and will also continue to preserve the unique characteristics that make you want to experience this run again and again.
As stated by Max Phua, Director, F4U Pte Ltd, “the OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore is our flagship event and we are happy to partner Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions Pte Ltd who was one of the co-founders of Sundown Marathon when we first started.”
“We are thrilled to be working with F4U again and to continue our journey on Sundown Marathon. We look forward to contributing our experience and expertise to this well-loved and established race and to create an unforgettable experience for our runners, returning and new ones alike,” says Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions Pte. Ltd.
This year, the OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore also aims to contribute funds to the ongoing charity initiative, Sundown with Love. Beneficiaries include the Singapore Disability Sports Council, The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and RunningHour.
For every race slot purchased, S$1 of the registration fee will be donated to the adopted beneficiaries, and runners will also have the opportunity to donate additional funds to the causes via the official event website.
“2019 and 2020 are critical years which will see Singapore’s top athletes vying for qualification to the Paralympic and Olympic Games, the world’s most prestigious multi-sport events. This journey will be expected to be another tough cycle for us as a charity, as we support not only top para-athletes like Yip Pin Xiu towards their Paralympic qualification, but also enable talented youth with disabilities like Wong Zhi Wei to continue their pathways towards achieving that dream someday. We cannot express our appreciation enough to the organizers of OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore, for giving us a lift towards our cause,” said Kelly Fan, Executive Director of the Singapore Disability Sports Council.
With these initiatives, the race organisers are also aiming at being certified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) by 2020 and will become the second race in Singapore to achieve this status.
