Mt Kinabalu International Climbathon

The Climbathon first started in 1987 where its origins can be traced to the Sabah Parks’ intention of creating a rapid rescue squad made up of a team of rangers who can bring down injured climbers fast (this is especially useful during bad weather when helicopters cannot be used). It was an all Malaysian affair for a year until it was opened to international participants. Sabah Tourism Board saw the potential of the event being a promotional tool to promote Sabah and took over organising the event in 1995. The Climbathon became a member of the World Mountain Running Association in 1997 and hosted the 15th World Mountain Running Trophy in 1999 at Kinabalu Park. In 2003, the Climbathon was admitted as member of the International Skyrunning Federation, the international body that promotes sports at high altitude. Since then, the Climbathon has been a part of the Federation’s Skyrunner World Series until 2012. International top runners from various countries race in the series’ venues to gather points to become the series world champion.

Mt Kinabalu International Climbathon has been one of Sabah’s iconic events for decades. After 35 years of organizing the event, we believe the original objective of promoting our beloved mountain and the surrounding Kinabalu Park has been achieved. It is now very popular with the status of World Heritage Site and will remain preserved taking care of the climbing limit and building of structures. Therefore, with heavy heart we would like to inform that we will no longer be organizing the Climbathon in the future. The Climbathon remains a patented brand and will be used in future events on another venue. We are proud to have organised this unique race and thank all athletes locally and from around the world who have supported us and visited Sabah all these years. Thank you to the Ministry Of Tourism, Culture and Environment Sabah, Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, Sabah Tourism Board, International Skyrunning Federation, World Mountain Running Association, Sri Pelancongan Sabah Sdn. Bhd. To the volunteers and staffs of Sabah Parks, mountain guides, Amateur Radio Society, Civil defence department, RTM, Sutera Sanctuary Lodges,  Spritzer Mineral Water, K2 Drinking Water, St. John Ambulance, Sabah Amateur Athletic Association and all the various organisations that have contributed to the success of the Climbathon through the years.
