Catch the excitement as runners from around the world gather at Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site for the annual sports event. It’s a race like no other! While casual climbers may take an average of two days to scale the mountain, professional mountain runners can clock as fast as 4 hours! Join us at the flag off in Kinabalu Park and cheer for the runners at the finishing line in Kundasang Town.

The Tamu Besar is the biggest traditional open-air market held in Sabah. Organised annually in Kota Belud, the Tamu Besar is a plethora of smells,sights and sounds as vendors proudly set up their stalls to sell a variety of goods, ranging from fresh produce to traditional handicraft. The main highlights of this event include a buffalo race, the crowning of the Ratu Sarempak (Sarempak Queen) and a colourful parade of horses and Bajau horsemen, known as the Cowboys of the East. This is one tamu not to be missed.
