Apik Hill Clearing with Pylons

Trail running and outdoor workouts at Apik Hill Cheras on Saturday morning, 19 Dec ... the outing started at 8:00 a.m. and only ended at 1:00 p.m. The clearing in the photos are for erecting of pylons (for power lines) that cut across the lower hills. 

One day, we may call it the "electric trail" or Shock Trail. Overtime, that might become Siok Trail. Just like the name of Apik Hill - not "uncle" as in Bahasa Malaysia. We were told that it is a white hill as "pek" is white in Hockien.

 Is there anything up there?

 Group workouts along the rest stations
 Taking a breather ... the hammock is good for resting in a hot afternoon 
 At Saga hill station ... from here, the group descended and then ascended Saga hill en route to waterfall
 Having a good splash with the refreshing cold water
 Lots of water flowing at the waterfall with the rainy seasons
 Yana doing outdoor workout at Station 3A where membership is free

Emerging from the trail, we have to pass by the clearing. Without the trees, we took a wrong path and ended up in a area where we have no idea where it is. After wandering for 500 meters, we have no choice but to backtrack to the trail.

Otterbox Salomon Trail Run

Action Asia Otterbox Salomon Trail Running event on Sunday 29 Nov 2015 at Janda Baik ... greeted with a morning rain at 6:00 a.m. before the flag-off, the trails were muddy and slippery. Every downhill run was a daunting task in avoiding for an uncontrollable slip. At the river crossing, the water level swelled with rapid current. The deepest area was almost chest deep. With the poorly prepared situation, the lives of the runners were hanging on tightly to a thin piece of rope tied to a small tree at the opposite side of the embankment. Waiting time was one hour or more to cross the river. Overall, it was a challenging and fun outing.

Puchong Hill Trail Run

Trail running at Puchong Hill on a cool and wet Saturday morning, 21 Nov 2015 ... After the haze season was over, these days, the talk of the town is "rain". It was raining heavily the evening before. With the wet ground, trail running requires a little more skill. 

Along the trails, there were three huge, old trees that fell and block the passage. One of the trees, I guessed, hit a lady trekker a few days ago; she later died in the hospital.

Bukit Kiara Trail Run

Trail running at Bukit Kiara on Saturday, 31 Oct 2015 ... After the previous evening's rain, the air was cool and fresh in the hills. The group ran a distance of 12km in 3.5 hours traversing Overtime trail, Twin Peak trail, Snake & Ladders trail, 4K and 2K trails. Under the canopy of trees, though it was at 10:30 a.m. with the sun, it was still cooling when running in the trails. Overall, it was a fun and good outing.
