Perhentian Island Challenge 2010

This is the time of the year to prepare for Perhentian Island Challenge 2010 (PIC 2010). Subject to approval from the State Government of Terengganu, PIC 2010 is scheduled to be held in Perhentian Island on 15th – 17th October 2010.

Over the past years we have been guilty of drumming down the event, making it too easy. This year we are going back to our original intentions to make it an endurance event to ‘Discover your Limits’.

This year we will have trail running and some swimming in the sea. Previously the event has been for teams of two, and as we shall dispense with using kayaks, this year will be an individual event.

We shall have categories for:
-Elite men
-Elite women
-Novice men
-Novice women

We shall be using trails on the big and small islands and to get from one island to the other we will either swim or use inflatable tubes. Where we have a swimming section then a buoyancy aid will be mandatory.

The event will start at the Kampong and then cross the sea channel to the big island where there will be a run which we anticipate to be 1 hour. Then it’s back to the small island and completes a run round the island with a bit of swimming thrown in. This we expect the front runners to complete in 2 hours.

As usual we will have our tented camp for accommodation for participants where meals will be served.

We are limiting the participants to 500 pax, of which 100 are reserved for the elite category. If we have fewer than 20 entrants for a category that category will be cancelled.

Date: 15 -17 Oct 2010
Venue: Perhentian Island, Terengganu
