Sunday Shades was excited to share our experience at the OSIM Sundown Marathon Press event, which we attended as a partner. This event marked the return of the OSIM Sundown Marathon for 2023, under a new licensee owner - RUNRIO. This collaboration is set to take the race to new heights and provide an exceptional night running experience for all participants.
The OSIM Sundown Marathon has always been a favourite amongst runners, with its unique night race format and stunning city views. The race is set to take place on 20 - 21 May 2023 and we cannot wait to see the runners take on the challenge.
During the press event, we had the opportunity to meet with several running clubs and coaches from Running Department, Tribal, and Elevate Performance Coaching. It was amazing to see so many passionate individuals coming together to celebrate the return of the OSIM Sundown Marathon. We even got to meet Sunday Shades' ambassador, Wei Kiat!
The highlight of the event was when RUNRIO's President and CEO, Rio De La Cruz, shared the exciting plans they have for the OSIM Sundown Marathon. Their goal is to bring the race to the region and beyond, making it a global event. With their expertise and experience in organizing running events, we are confident that they will succeed in this endeavour.
As an athletic person, you may be wondering why you should consider participating in the OSIM Sundown Marathon. Well, here are some reasons why we think it's a race you shouldn't miss.
Firstly, the night race format offers a unique experience that you won't find in other races. Running through the city under the stars, with the cool night breeze in your face, is an experience like no other. It's a chance to see the city in a different light and appreciate its beauty in a way that you wouldn't during the day.
Secondly, the OSIM Sundown Marathon is not just a race, it's an event. There are pre-race activities, such as the Press event that we attended, which give you a chance to meet other runners and coaches, learn about the race and get excited for it. There are also post-race activities, such as the Finisher Festival, which is a celebration of your achievement and a chance to relax and have fun with other runners.
Lastly, participating in the OSIM Sundown Marathon is a challenge that will push you to your limits. Running a marathon is no easy feat, but doing it at night adds an extra layer of difficulty. It's a chance to prove to yourself that you are capable of achieving great things and to feel proud of yourself for accomplishing something that not everyone can do.
In conclusion, the OSIM Sundown Marathon is a race that offers a unique and unforgettable experience. With the new collaboration with RUNRIO, we are excited to see what the future holds for this race and for the running community.
We want to thank RUN Magazine for organizing the press event and giving us the opportunity to be a part of it. We hope to see you at the starting line on 20 - 21 May 2023, ready to take on the challenge and make memories that will last a lifetime. Happy running!
