|Malaysian made it - Kuilin is the champion for Women Category in|
this year's climbathon - bravo, Malaysian are all very proud of you.
Venue: Mount. Kota Kinabalu Sabah
Last weekend finally get to experience the trail of mountain running. It was indeed one of a kind experience. The trail of catching up on very strict race qualifying time within the hazardous surrounding of slippery path, high altitude terrain and thin air. But it was the last of its kind or rather the final event of this race series, where the organizer would change the race format of not including the summit/peak in the next year race. Below are pictures of moment that could share with everyone.

time. Hash runners seems to be better survivors.

very strong runners from KL. Both made it
within 4:20+ up and down the mountain.
