Bidor Half Marathon 2013 - Top 15 Results

Date: 28 Apr 2013

The Bidor Half Marathon has always been a favorite event among the runners from all over the country. In this year's event we saw many of familiar faces from KL and the northern regions (and many international participants too - strong runners from Kenya, Thai and Japan).  Overall, it attracted about 1,600 runners despite the clash with the World Kidney Day run in Putrajaya.

And some of the reasons why it has been a favorite: well organized, runners safety, countryside - running very close to nature, lots of food after the run and most of all - the race incorporates a good challenging distance with hills at the end to break you.  The only set back is that the race starts at 7.00 am. Although this will well accommodate those who were driving in on event day but it also guarantee that runners were tortured by the hot weather besides the hill challenge at the second half of the race.

Highly recommended event and best if you go with your fellow runner buddies or family to enjoy the local food and excursions around the region.

Earth Day Run 2013 - Top 20 Results

Date: 21 Apr 2013
Distance: 3km, 5km and 10km

The inaugural  International Jazz Earth Day Run was held in the University Campus this morning. Race format is a single 5 km loop for the Veterans and double loop for the Open categories. Distance is about 5.2 km (according to GPS) per loop. As it is an open/international competition, many African runners were attracted to join the race (first prize RM1,000 for the Open Category). From the results below, you will see the top 15 in the Men Open (and the top Women too) were dominated by these Africans pros.

Start and finish at the UM Arena. Prizes are for top 5 runners. Medals for top 20. Race route is very challenging with plenty of hills and corners. And besides basic refreshment and goodies bag, everyone gets a finisher plant! Yes a fruit/flower/ornament plant of your choice so that you can grow at your own garden.

Overall, the organization is so-so. Punctuality not satisfactory, with some delays here and there. However, it is noted that runners' safety was not well taken care of, due to the fact that the race route not closed to the heavy traffic of the UM campus.
