Fadhil Yunus

The Brunei Darussalam Scouts Association (PPNBD), in the cooperation with AKIF Event, is set to organise the Brunei Scouts Charity Run 2021 at the Taman Haji Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien in the capital during Bandarku Ceria on February 28.

Following the guidelines set for organised sports from the Department of Youth and Sports, the event will only be capped to 250 participants only. Two categories will be contested: the five-kilometre and 15-kilometre.

Meanwhile, there will also be a two-kilometre Fun Walk, a non-competitive and a leisurely cruise around Bandar which is ideal for family bonding or a friends get-together. Registration can be made through www.bruneiscoutrun.com or click the link on the @bruneiscoutrun bio. The closing date for registration is on February 15 or whenever the slots are filled.

Participants who have already registered last year will be notified through their emails for race pack collection on February 26 at the Scout Headquarters Building in Kampong Mata-Mata.

With health and safety a top priority, participants are advised to observe social responsibility and to be at the event during the specific flag-off time.

The race was initially scheduled to be held in April last year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
