About

ABOUT FRIM
Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) is one of the leading institutions in tropical forestry research in the world. Founded in 1929, FRIM is now under the purview of the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources (KATS) since 2018.

The Institute sits on a 545-ha site adjacent to the Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve in the Kepong municipality, 16 km northwest of Kuala Lumpur. FRIM was awarded the MS ISO 9001:2015 certification starting 2017. It was gazetted as a Natural Heritage Site on 10 February 2009 under the National Heritage Act 2005, and officially declared as a National Heritage on 10 May 2012. FRIM is working towards attaining the recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

FRIM is one of the top eco-tourism destinations in Malaysia, offering visitors various attractions and activities such as nature trails, waterfalls, nature education centre, camping and picnic sites, botanic gardens and arboreta.

ABOUT THE RUN
The 'Forest Heritage Run @ FRIM 2020' is organised in conjunction with the International Day of Forests 2020 (IDF 2020) celebration. The aim is to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as provide the public the opportunity to enjoy the forest environment. In line with the IDF 2020 themed, 'Forest and Biodiversity', participants will be able to run through the forest trails and see the uniqueness of FRIM. FRIM is a man-made forest with rich biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The running routes consist of a mixture of road and forest trails. The number of participants for this will be limited to 1,000 to minimise disturbance to the forest and ensure the long-term sustainability and conservation of this green campus. 

When you’re enjoying the run, taking in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings, please be mindful to help us ensure cleanliness and care for this 100 years’ man-made forest.

5 March 2020 – FRIM has decided to postpone the ‘Forest Heritage Run @ FRIM 2020’ ([email protected]), scheduled to be held this Saturday (7 March), to a date which will be announced later.

As a responsible institution, FRIM MUST prioritise the safety and health of all participants, staff members and their family.

The objective of the [email protected] is to provide the public with the opportunity to experience the wonders of FRIM forest whilst also promoting healthy lifestyle.
