Salomon X-Trail Run

Salomon X-Trail Run 2013 at at M.A.E.P.S. – Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang, Serdang, Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, 10 Nov 2013. 

I like the venue as it is a tranquil place with lakes, hills and greenery. I saw there were some durian trees lining the trail. When the season is right, maybe we could have durians after the run.

I was surprised to see that I returned to finishing point in 42 minutes. I happened to I bump into En Rustam, Club President of Pacesetter near the finishing line. He said that the distance for this event is about 7km. In one of the earlier Salomon trail running events, the terrain was tougher and distance was longer (which was tough for the runners). Hence, to test the response of acceptance by runners in this new venue, the distance is shorter; next year, the trail route would be longer.

I bought a new pair of Salomon trail running shoes (the pair in red) at the Salomon X-Trail Run on 10 Nov 2013 - looks good and the feel is good.
