The moment they announced about UEM Charity Run 2016, I signed up for it immediately. Not just because of its reasonable registration fees, RM60 but running along the total shut down NKVE excite me the most. Runners would feel so safe running there, hassle free. Plus we could get the flashy finisher medal along with Ultron running tee & awesome finisher tee. I'm pretty sure the newbies would more excited to join such inaugural race.
It turned out I was right. There were so many runners happened to participate this event than Bukit Jalil HM on the same day. Like they said, the more the marrier. Everybody would love to run on a new route that possess new challenges too.
Once again we were proud to be one of the co-sponsors for this charity run. Thanks to the organizer Puncak Venture for the opportunities. We also had our own booth for sales & promotion at the open field. Later I'll tell you guys about it ok...
On the race day, I could not sleep well the night before. Plus I need to wake up early to get a decent parking not far from the starrting line. To make things worse, I was lost in finding the nearest landmark Dataran Glomac. No thanks to the Waze. Dayumm. Wasted some time to find my way. Finally there was one parking slot near the lake.
Hurriedly prepped myself up and jogged my way to the starting line. Had 1 Marathonbaker Runbananaz before the run. 15 minutes to flag off. Met the usual suspects before gathering in the gantry. Hafeez, Lisa, Azman, Amin Jaafar & Taufik. One of them took a munch of the Marathonbaker energy bar too before running. Wished everyone best of luck before we were being flagged off by 5am.

Finally I reached the top of the Bukit Lanjan incline & made it to the u-turn point (10.5km). Awesome view from up here and now it was time for the effortless downhill run. Yayyy!

We had such a lovely Arabic cuisine here in Samira Cuisine. Some ordered chicken Briyani but I ordered Lamb Mandy rice was to die for. Had some chit chats with our two Lady Bosses, this was our first time having lunch with (almost) everybody in Marathonbaker Family. Thank you so much babe for the lovely treat. Will be back looking for this cozy eatery spot again since I'm a huge fan of lamb! 😜✌️
