Kuching, Malaysia; 6 September 2017 – Last Sunday, the 3rd of September 2017, more than 1,500 runners took part in the second race of the Malaysia edition of The Performance Series. The event comprised three categories, Competitive 21km, Competitive 10km and 5km Fun Run, flagging off at MBKS (Majlis Bandaraya Kuching Selatan). The iconic 21km route included two bridges and, together with the 10km and 5km categories, passed through the city offered magnificent views of various landmarks.
