adiNation Trail Run

 Cahaya SPK, Puncak Alam -- The starting/ending of adiNation Trail Run

This is the fourth and the final series in 2011 for the adiNation of Runners Breakfast Run. For a change in flavour, there is certain amount of trail running incorporated in this run. Based on the previous successful series, the organizer, Adidas, has to restrict the number of participants to 500 only.

The weather this morning (Sunday, 11 Dec 2011) was gloomy and cloudy as compared to yesterday’s sunny blue sky. Nevertheless, the calm weather (before the storm) was most suitable for a run nestled within the new housing estate of Cahaya SPK, Punchak Alam in Shah Alam district -- where the houses here are costing RM 1 million and above each.

 Extra Challenge - The ground is wet after a heavy downpour yesterday late afternoon

Overall, the run was well organized with two water stations in such a short 7.8km run. There was lot of food for breakfast after the run.
The icing on the cake must be the lucky draws other than the prizes for top runners. Adidas Malaysia is most generous to dish out many draws such as designer sunglasses, running vests, T-shirts, shorts, pants, backpacks, balls, etc. The runners were truly enjoying themselves going through the process of the draw with Mr. Krishnan, Head of Running of Adidas (M), and Julie Wong, one of the volunteers in assisting to organize this memorable event.
