View from Awana

O Wow!!! What can I say about this race. It's totally different from what I've been thru.


2.00pm - We were at Genting Highlands. Saje lepak-lepak kat atas first, still too early for registration. Best jugak naik atas hari ni, banyak kabus, sejuk dia rasa cam kat Europe dah.

3.30pm - Fairul and I took the room package and we arrived in Awana a day before everyone else. Ada clinic and briefing at 4.30pm. Stayed over for the night and had dinner there, and prepared ourselves mentally. 14km running in the jungle... not an easy task btw.

The Wild Ones

The Mild Ones


7.00am - The Mild Veteran teams came plus few more people, namely Nina, Achik, Akim, Izzat and Iylia. Got their numbers pinned, and off we went to the starting line. We were all dressed cam muslimah already, pasal takut pacat. Siap ada yang spray badan guna Baygon cam spray perfume dah rupanya.

7.40am -At the starting point, dengar briefing and some light exercises courtesy of Fitness First. Izzat had to run back and forth to the hotel pasal tertinggal camera and tak reti2 bukak pintu hotel. Apa la awak ni Izzat...

8.30am - Bang!! The gun went off and Fairul & I jogged slowly. We've never done anything like this before so we took it easy. Kang pancit tengah-tengah hutan kang, sape nak tolong. Dah la kitorang ni first timer. Then at 8.35am - The Mild category was flagged off.

Ni berkelah ke, trailblazing nihh...

Cool huh you guys.....

Help me!!

We are the Kings of the Hills

Reversing,... *tit.. *tit.. *tittt

Oii!!! Faster laaa..!!!

Hup 2, 3, 4.....

Ada few incidents I just have to jot down:-

  • Masa kat starting line, I had a look around and I saw this one chinese lady wearing jeans and kasut cam ballerina yang pergi jalan tu. And believe it or not, she's in the Wild category. Dia ingat pergi jalan-jalan ke apa dalam hutan tu.

  • While running down somewhere in the jungle, I think baru 1 or 1.5 km, Naresh and Guna (they were in the Mild category) went zooommmm pass us. Mak aii... not only they can run fast on the road, but I think they are faster in the jungle la. We cheered for them, and of course, they managed to get No. 1 in their category. Congrats you guys and thanks for the voucher you gave me Naresh. Love yaa....

  • Ada this one guy, long pony-tailed hair, made this one big leap from behind me. Terror la dia. Dah macam lompat pagar dah rupanya. Nasib baik tak tercucuk kayu yang terpacak kat depan tu.

  • While we were trying to slide down this steep and slippery hill, ada this one malay lady, mak aii... irritatingnyaaaaaaaaaaaa...... I think dia ni entered this run with her company kot. Sebabnya, every two seconds mesti dia terpekik-pekik panggil Mr. Teh. Tapi I tengok dia punya bib, dalam kategory MW, so tak mungkin Mr. Teh (I suspect boss dia kot) ni partner dia. Dia kat bawah, Mr Teh ni, I agak la, ada kat atas lagi kot. Kejap-kejap, 'Mr Teh, cepat Mr. Teh', 'Mr. Teh, turun je Mr Teh', 'Mr. Teh tak kisah la Mr. Teh', 'Mr. Teh faster Mr. Teh'......and so on. This guy behind me said, 'Wah, so kiasu la that lady'. Memang pun. I dah tercarik-carik kayu and batu nak baling kat dia dah masa tu. Nasib baik Fairul buat lawak masa tu, sempat tergelak jugak la I.

  • I think tak sampai 1 minute after the encounter of the lady from planet "Kipas Mr Teh", ada pulak minah lembik kat belakang I terjerit-jerit. Sebabnya, ummpph... terlalu banyak. Antaranya, aaaa... takut turun bukit, aaaa.... tangan sakit...., aaaa... bukit licin...., aaa...... akak jangan tinggalkan saya, aaa.....jangan tolak, aaa... kaki sakit, aaa.... itu, aaa... ini.... Helloooooo, dah tau masuk race cam ni, be prepared for the worse the babe. Ni tak, asyik complain je. Kang I give you a reason to shout and cry about kang haaa......

  • Ada this one kakak, after much of sliding, seluar dia koyak kat punggung. Ada two big holes behind her. Nampak panties putih dia. Sian I tengok. Memula dia suruh partner dia pinned it up. Tapi tak boleh jugak. Last sekali I dengar, dia suruh partner dia (who is a guy) bukak seluar lari dia and change seluar ngan that kakak.

Fairul and I pantang nampak air, mesti nak main punya. Sampai kat stream, lagi lama kitorang kat situ. Si Fairul sempat mandi lagi..hahahha. The Mild category tak lalu kat situ, so korang tak tau la. Best giler... air dia sejuk ya amat. And we also saw this huge tall tree, I think it's about a few hundred years old la.

I don't know whether we were fast or Along & Halil were slow but we managed to catch up at the junction.


Arghhh.... we made it....

11.25am - We finally reached the finishing line after almost 3 hours in the jungle. We got No. 40. Ok la. Janji tak last. That's our motto. For first-timers and terus masuk Wild, it's quite impressive jugak kitorang made it without breaking any bones.

Angah and Alang made in 2 hours and 15 minutes (correct me if I'm wrong) and got No. 19. Rupanya Izzat pun ikut sekali berlari ngan diorang. Along & Halil who clocked in like 10 minutes behind us pun dapat No. 22. Nampak sangat category korang ni kurang team.

So at the end, we all went back to the hotel. Sampai kat lobby, nak naik ke 22nd floor pun kena beratur. Alang, Halil and Izzat decided to climb the stairs. Kira cam diorang buat wild jugak la. Izzat lepas sampai kat atas, tetiba kaki dia sakit gile babi, siap nangis lagi... Apa la Izzat, tak macho langsung. By 1.30pm, we left the hotel and headed straight back to KL.

I would like to thank the organiser, very good. They provided shower too. And also to kasut Fung Keong, best woo.... RM20 only but as good as any other trailblazer shoes (thanks Jaya for the tip).

Ok. That's it from Genting. Next week, KRI Run.......
