Re-run of NB15 km for Volunteers

Dear Fellow Runners and Friends,

I am embarking on a new initiative relating to running. However, it competes with my limited time for blogging. As such, I would have to slow down on my postings for duration of 2 to 3 weeks. When the time is right, I will be full throttle ahead again.

Meantime, if you have any interesting articles on running that you would like to share with other runners, do send emails to me and I will publish them for you… by KC

Re-run of NB15

This is a great idea. There will be a similar re-run this Sunday morning, 28 May that modelled the New Balance 15km Run. This is a fun run and non-competitive in nature. The main purpose is to cater for volunteers that have missed The Run when they served other runners diligently last Sunday. As I understand from Jenny Lim, assigned to stage this mini event, a few runners volunteered to assist. This is the true spirit of running – first, the volunteers help runners; now runners help volunteers in return.

Date: Sunday, 28 May 2006
Start Time: 7am
Start Venue: Padang Merbuk car park (at the finishing spot of NB15 Run last Sunday)
Course: Similar route as New Balance 15km Run

There will be two main groups of runners this Sunday: the volunteers and registered participants who missed last Sunday's run. Running friends are welcome too.

Finisher Medals:
Only volunteers and registered participants would receive finisher medal at the finishing line.

There would be no certificates issued

Only bottled water in 500 ml size would be served in its original form (meaning not using cups); there will be no isotonic drinks. According to Jenny Lim, the Club allocated 9 crates of bottled water that can comfortably cater for 70 runners.

So, see you this Sunday.
