GATOR Sports will organise the inaugural Brunei Run X3 at the Berakas Forest Reserve on July 28.
The event will feature three types of terrain – trail, beach and road. Organisers hope to attract runners from around the region to participate.
The event will be divided into three categories – mixed team, men’s individual and women’s individual events. The events will be open to all international and local runners aged 16 and above.
For the team event, the trail runner will be the first to flag off and will have to complete a 5km run before handing over a bracelet to the next teammate. The second runner will then have to complete a 5km run along the beach before passing on the bracelet to the last teammate, who will then have to finish a 5km road run which begins and ends inside the Berakas Forest Reserve after covering a section of the Tutong-Muara Highway.
