A Convenient Runcation

bintan marathon 2018

Are you looking for a short and cost-effective weekend runcation? Then the first-ever International Bintan Marathon would like you to be there!

Bintan Resorts will be hosting the inaugural International Bintan Marathon on 9 September 2018 with the tagline, ‘Run and Discover’. Organised in collaboration with PT. Medianusa Permana and Singaporean event specialist Orange Room, the event will feature three distances: a 10km charity run, a 21km half-marathon, and a 42km full-marathon.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will be appropriated to assist a local and deserving charity in Bintan – Hidayatulloh Bintan Orphanage. Established in 1997, the orphanage provides educational, housing and religious facilities for orphans and young people who are unable to be cared for by their own families. The staff and children of the orphanage will be present to grace and participate in the event.

The Indonesian resort island of Bintan is approximately 2.5 times the size of Singapore, but large parts of it remain sparsely populated, making it a great place to run a road race. It’s also just a short, comfortable 60-minutes ferry ride away from Singapore, so getting there is a breeze.

The marathon, which is sanctioned by Persatuan Atletik Seluruh Indonesia (PASI) will start and finish at Plaza Lagoi in Lagoi Bay – a popular tourist spot at Bintan Resorts.

Participants will follow a scenic route by the lake and also discover parts of Bintan not normally seen by other travellers as well as popular tourist sites, giving them a scenic and holistic view of the island over the course of their run.

A special S$99 Day Tripper Package is available for participants of the 10km Charity Run. Limited to only the first 150 signups, participants are able to take the first ferry from Singapore on the day of the event and return on an afternoon ferry, eliminating the need for an overnight stay in Bintan if time is a factor. The package includes registration fees for the 10km Charity Run, a 2 way Ferry ticket on 9 September and a shuttle bus transfer. If you’re waiting to experience your first overseas run, this is the perfect opportunity to get started.
