The 7K Run was first held in July 2000, with only 3,000 runners as part of Sutera Harbour Resort’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative and to raise funds for the Special Olympics Sabah. The aim was to also gather the community of Kota Kinabalu in the spirit of giving and friendship and at the same time to encourage and promote a healthier lifestyle in a fun environment.

Over the years, the SH7KRun grew bigger and better with more than 12,000 supporters supporting this humble cause last year.  A total of RM202,016.95 were collected last year, where the Special Olympics Sabah and Sabah Thalassaemia Society each received RM101,008.50. This year, the 16th Sutera Harbour 7K Charity Run which is scheduled on Saturday, 20 August 2016 still receives a lot of love and overwhelming response not only from the community of Kota Kinabalu but from all over Sabah, and other parts of Malaysia as well.
