Relive the excitement at the OSIM Sundown Marathon 2017
This year marks the 10th edition of Asia’s largest night marathon - OSIM Sundown Marathon which drew an overwhelming attendance of 27,000 runners – all geared up to conquer the night in the final leg of the tri-region event, following on from successfully held runs in both Penang and Taipei.
Being the title sponsor for the third year running, we also decided to lead by example and participate in the race. Comprising of more than 100 staff members, team OSIM bravely accepted the challenge of the gruelling overnight run, in the name of encouraging healthy living while working towards our individual fitness goals. Many of team OSIM’s members kept pace with each other and encouraged each other to go the distance and cross the finish line, despite the physical exertion and fatigue setting in.
Smiles were all around as team OSIM showed off their finisher’s medals, a well-deserved badge of honour!
This year’s race included the inaugural Sundown Night Festival, which featured an Art-box night festival concept held from 21 - 25 March with an exciting slate of programmes lined up. With live stage performances, Yoga sessions and even an overnight movie marathon, attending local and overseas sports fanatics had every reason to cheer.
The OSIM booth was fitted with the uLove Massage Chairs and uJolly Back Massagers to let runners and non-runners to experience the soothing and relaxing pre-marathon and post-marathon massages.
And over at the massage area for runners, sore and aching muscles were quickly relieved with the uPamper 2’s Gua Sha massage.
And what good would an event be without freebies? As if the excitement wasn’t enough, many of our lucky runners walked away with attractive giveaways from OSIM, making this a happy occasion for both them and us.
OSIM hopes everyone had an enjoyable and rewarding time at the OSIM Sundown Marathon 2017. We know we did!
