KTM Building at the break of dawn. Quite pretty if you take a moment out and observe.
RM20 bucks registration. You get a cotton tee, race bib, finisher medal for the first 30 in each category, finisher certificate, lots of milo and fruit juice at hand, even a lucky draw and free shows! What more can you ask for? Like I've said, small runs are the best. They bring out the best in the organizers by keeping things simple yet workable. Now, this is what I call a fun run cause there was plenty of FUN to be had!
Day started as early as 5am for me. Got ready and zoomed down to the KTM building. It's refreshing not to start from the usual Dataran Merdeka. Parking was plenty and not much of a hassle. Best of all, you don't get charged 10 bucks for it hahahaaa.
Too bad I didn't have my usual waterproof camera with me. Sister nicked it for a while. So not much pics to show except for those I curi from.
Beginning 7.30am, the men's open, veteran and women's open were flagged off. On time. Not that many runners really, perhaps around 200 or so and off we waddled. The menu was the familiar Bukit Aman area and of course, you won't miss those darn rolling hills somewhere in the middle of the route.
All in all, there were 2 water station for this 7km route, not too shabby. No pushing, no shoving. Plenty of water to go around. Didn't stop for either though as I was on a roll and didn't want to disrupt the rhythm too much. And before you know it, I was making my way back to the KTM building and finally the finishing line!
No, not 100 plus but they were also serving out F&N Apple fruit juice. Not too bad. And plenty to go around too
Ah well, it wasn't the grand prize of a LCD TV but I am just ecstatic with this prize. Hat Yai anyone? :D. Overall, great start to my weekend and had plenty of fun with the usual suspects at this event. Definitely an A in my books. Got to now get ready to head off to Majung with Pooky for the ride of my life tomorrow! Yeah, all 140km of it. Later!
