All runners and trekkers are welcome. Even if you are new to trekking, you can also join us as the method of training is loop-around in circuit.
Please click here to view photos of the track taken by yours truly (KC). I have recced the location and here are the photos.
Date: Saturday 12 June 2010
Start Time: 7:30 a.m.
End time: 10:30 a.m.
Duration: 3 hours
Venue: FRIM, Kepong
Meet at: 7:00 a.m for briefing at Location E car parks.
Location E - park your cars here. Stand-alone building with brown roof is the toilet
Method of Training/Looping:
a. At Location E (toilet/car park), run to F (starting of Canopy Walkway Trail), passing by G, H, J, K, L. Then run back to F.
b. Loop again: F, G, H, J, K, L, F c. While at F, you can run back to E (car park to drink water or go to toilet).
The terrain here is similar to the trail as in Mount Kinabalu
On the descending trail, the ground can be slippery, so are the huge rocks along the trail. Take the opportunity to test the off-road running shoes for good traction. If you are wearing road running shoes, you would be able to know whether your existing shoes are suitable for this challenge.
