MSS Selangor Cross Country 2012 - Young Barefoot Runners

Date: 2 Feb 2012
Time: 9am
Venue: UPM

This year MSSS cross country was held at UPM farm. There were 10 Selangor Districts took part in the event which divided to 6 categories and represented by 6 students in each category.  The starting point was inside the farm near to a lake as UPM disallowed them to use UPM stadium as students might make noise which would disturbed their staff. The reason was really unacceptable as there were less than 400 secondary and primary students taking part. As such, students have to walk from the farm gate to the lake and warm up at the muddy field. Even thought it is only 6km but the event should start early instead of at 9am which the sun has already high up.

Noticed that there were some young barefoot runners, without fear ran on the muddy and rocky road, salute to them. According to their teacher, shoe were provided but they can't performance and run well with shoe.
