Report: Delta Eco Night Run 2014

Tarikh: 30 Ogos2014 | 8:30pm | Sabtu
Tempat: Taman Belia, Pulau Pinang
Jarak: 8km. Official full result.

Net Time: 45:28

Daftar sehari sebelum tarikh tutup. Dok belah bagi nak pi Songkhla Marathon (31/8) atau yang ni. Tarikh cukop cantek. Ahad. Hari merdeka. Coti umum. Yang paling penting Ahad, sekolah coti bagi Kedah.

Ikut hati, nak bawa gerabak sekali. Bercoti sambil berlari di Songkhla Marathon yang belom pernah aku sertai. Tapi kepala-hotak aku suruh bersabar banyak2 sebab River Kwai lagi 2 minggu yang dok dalam perancangan.

Nak tambah gusar lagi.. Ahad - 6 hari sebelum race ni, ada budak sauk aku daripada belakang masa ambik anak balik sekolah. Tertirap aku tengah jalan tar dengan anak bongsu dan sulong tergolek ke tepi jalan. Mujur ada pelanggan dan tauke Kedai Mee Abu tolong angkat. Kaki aku tersusuk dengan kick starter. Berlobang. Nampak tulang. Manakala ibu jari kaki luka calar.

Delta Eco Night Run 2014

Nak cancel berlari, terasa rugi. Daftar 2 nama. Bayar hampir RM100. Coti 3 hari.

Penang. Jalan cukop jem petang tu.. Nasib baik sempat sampai sebelum Maghrib di Taman Belia dapat amik bib+baju. Ceh.. baju size S dan XS. Pap! early bird fee pon baju saiz tak betoi.

Malam tu.. aku berlari kaki ayam. Pertama kali racing tanpa kasut. Masa training pon terjadi jugak.. bila terlupa bawa kasut dalam reta. Target malam tu.. fun run saja. Tapi pederas takat mana termampu.

Delta Eco Night Run 2014

Alif, Azuan dan rakan Bertam Running Club termasuk 2 member yang akan turut serta ke Kanchaburi (Aznan dan cikgu Yusong) pon ada. Depa pederas dulu bila flag-off tepat pada jam 8pm. Cukop meriah Taman Belia malam tu.

Warga asing pon ramai yang amik bahagian. Maksud aku geng2 Bangla ni.. mai mana tak tau. Tengok pakaian macam dipaksa aja.. berseluar jean, kasut kasual bukan jenis sport shoes. Bau badan... macam baru lepas kerja. Cukop kuat bau badan depa.. sampai aku lari keluaq dari starting point - dok tepi.

Delta Eco Night Run 2014
Delta Eco Night Run 2014

Berkaki ayam... syiok jugak. Keadaan jalan agak berpasir sedikit ketika berlari di kawasan perumahan. Tapi bila atas jalan raya menuju Kebun Bunga.. jalan cukop cantik. Sedap berlari. Ada ketika bila melepasi kuil hindu betul2 depan roundabout (selalu dok sembahyang untuk kereta baru) Jalan Gottlieb.. tok sami 3 calit tu... bley angkat tangan bila tengok aku lari berkaki ayam. Ceh! ingat aku buat nazar ka!

Delta Eco Night Run 2014

Keluar dari laluan dalam Kebun Bunga, nampak Alauddin. Aku racun, ajak dia berlari lebey laju. Cuma tinggai 1~2km saja garis penamat. Dia tak mampu.. aku pacing dengan dia. Sampai jalan berbukit dia nampak finish line... Hantu betoi.. dia pecut tinggai aku.

Post race meal.. pon ada macam2. Tak ingat dah apa dia. Tapi kenyang la malam tu. Tak dak apa nak complain. Malam tu kitaorang tunggu sampai habis.. sambil berharap no. bib naik untuk cabutan bertuah... Grand Prize - bercoti atas kapai Star Cruise. Eeemmm...

Rasanya Delta Eco Run Night Run kali ini adalah yang ke 3. Penganjur cukop perihatin. Segala keperluan peserta diambil kira. Walaupon yuran penyertaan agak mahal tapi di seimbangkan dengan medal, t'shirt yang cantik serta post-race meals yang pelbagai.

Tepat jam 12:00 malam 31 Ogos, malam merdeka, kitaorang bertolak balik bertemankan 2 ekoq burung hantu..

Hari 4: Ahad. Race day

3:45am (TH)
- Bangun. Re-fill dan stock clearance. Refresh. Standby for subuh.
- @hotel. 45 minit sebelum flag-off. Taya moto pancit!. Gabra. Gelabah bewak. Hotel owner kasi pam taya.. nak buat apa. Satgi tengah jalan pancit balik. Aku nekad nak buat hitchhiking ajer.
- Ting! 3 org bermoto 10km ke starting line.

6:00am (TH). Racing
- Laluan berbukit2. Naik-turun. Korna-korna. Tapi pemandangan pepagi disekitar cukop menarik. Berkabus. Lereng bukit. Hijau. Sejuk. Nak lari laju pon terasa rugi.
- Laluan u-turn. Maka jarak laluan pastinya ngam - 21km.
- Aku start selow di belakang. Pelan2 aku sayur Aznan. Minta kebenaran potong cikgu pada suku jarak larian.
- Ada juga peserta dari Malaysia. Kurang dari 10 org rasanya.

Finish Line.

- @Finish line. Kemudahan lengkap. Tandas, luggage area, minuman coke, soft-drink, mineral dan isotonik.
- Post-run recovery, jamuan makan kat hotel. Kena naik lori ke sana. Makan buffet. Cuma gigit telor+sos tomato+nasi. Lelain meal, cuak sikit.

Keputusan
- Saya (-11.5 sec) dengan Aznan (-2:39.80 min) dapat buat negative split.

06:00pm di Stesen Keretapi Hua Lamphong, Bangkok

Report: Mizuno River Kwai International Half Marathon 2014 - 2/3

Catatan kembara dan sertai Mizuno River Kwai International Half Marathon (MRKIHM), di Kanchanaburi, Thailand. 11~15 September 2014 - Bahagian 2 (bahagian 1, bahagian 3)

Hari 2. Jumaat: Nakhon Pathom -> Kanchanaburi -> Nam Tok -> Kanchanaburi.

09:15 (TH)
Naik Train#257 (TBR-NAT). Keretapi biasa. Rasanya ia merupakan sumbangan komuniti dari pihak keretapi kepada rakyat. Tiada kadar/tambang dikenakan sepanjang 4:30jam perjalanan kepada penduduk tempatan.

Train: ORD-257 (TBR-NAT). 100baht.

Berkeretapi akan dihidangkan suasana kehidupan sebenar masyarakat tempatan. Pemandangan dibelakang rumah, jelapang ladang jagung, ladang tebu, ladang ubi kayu serta sayur-sayuran.

Terdapat banyak hentian kecil dan besar. Bagi yang kecil, bangunan hentian macam henti bas di tempat kita cuma dibina menggunakan simen.

Perjalanan berkeretapi bertambah menarik bermula dari Kanchanaburi ke Nam Tok. 500m selepas Stesen Kanchanaburi adalah jambatan bersejarah sungai Kwai (River Kwai Bridge) yang popular.

Jika datang Kanchanaburi, berkeretapi dari Kanchanaburi - Nam Tok adalah wajib. Jangan lepaskan. Akan dihidangkan memandangan Sungai Kwai, hutan pokok buluh serta resort2 yang cantik untuk didiami untuk percutian kedua.. mungkin?

Jangan lena jika sampai Thamkrasae Bridge. Amat terkenal selepas Jambatan River Kwai. Saksikan penat, lelah, perit, seksanya membina tanpa sebarang kemudahan hingga membawa maut oleh buruh paksa membina laluan keretapi di jambatan ini.

Sampai di stesen akhir Nam Tok, kena turun beli tiket balik 100baht/pax. sebab kita warga asing. Kemudian naik semula keretapi yang sama dan bertolak kembali. Sebelah stesen Nam Tok adalah Sai Yok Noi Waterfall. Tak sempat nak ronda sebab kesuntukkan masa - 10mins.

@Kanchanaburi. Bertemu cikgu YuSong di Good Times Resort di Maenam Kwai Rd. Kat sini jalan paling meriah. Penuh dengan para pelancong. 7-11, pub, resort, hotel, sewa kereta, motosikal pon ada.

- Sewa moto Honda Spacey 400baht untuk 2 hari.
- Makan di Dawudcha Islam Restaurant
- Bermalam di Fut Fit Fo Fai Inn Hotel. 100meter bertentangan dengan Dawudcha Islam Restaurant. 500baht/night
- Ronda di pasar malam. Mujur ada 1 stall muslim jual nasi kuning berayam untuk makan malam.



Hari 3. Sabtu: Bermoto Kanchanaburi -> Nam Tok. Event registration.

9:00am
- Ronda pekan Kanchanaburi yang luas. Tempat bersejarah. Bus station.
- Minum pagi di Dataran Jambatan River Kwai
- Ziarah Arts Gallery and War Museum
- Makan tengahari di Dataran Jambatan River Kwai. Ada satu stall muslim.

12:30
- Check out Fut Fit Fo Fai Inn Hotel
- Jemput cikgu YuSong di Hotel. Sewa moto ke2.
- Ride Itek! 70km ke tempat registration River Kwai Village Resort.

15:00
- River Kwai Village Resort, ambik bib# dan goodies begs.
- Bergambar, digambar dan mengambar laluan esok pagi.

17:00
- Pusing2 cari hotel. Aku memang tidak buat sebarang reservation untuk penginapan. Hantam kromo. Tapi mulut kena ringan bertanya.
- Lepas mencuba 3-4 hotel, dapat Chokchai atau Cola Hotel. 200~300 meter dengan Nam Tok Railway Stesen. 300baht/mlm. Tiada TV dan aircond. Bilik lelain penuh. Elok la tu.. kitaorg pon tak berapa berkenan dengan aircond ni. Cuaca pon sejuk. Hujan.

Ada satu kedai makan muslim 100 meter dari Nam Tok Railway Stesen tapi 6:00 petang.. dah tutup. Tak sempat.

Cargas pi 7-11. Beli roti, cicah nescafe 3-1 dari Malaysia dengan snickers.

Report: Mizuno River Kwai International Half Marathon 2014 - 1/3

Catatan kembara dan sertai Mizuno River Kwai International Half Marathon (MRKIHM), di Kanchanaburi, Thailand. 11~15 September 2014 - Bahagian 1 (bahagian 2, bahagian 3)

Acara larian yang tertua di Thailand. Kali yang ke 33, dihadkan hingga 1500 peserta sahaja. Lama dah dok terbaca dan teringin. Satu ketika terkena racun bila pandang t'shirt MRKIHM masa balik dari Koh Tarutao Mac lepas. Kembara kali ni banyak dibantu oleh jadual keretapi laluan selatan dan maklumat daripada laman www.seat61.com.

Sebaik selesai daftar online Jun14 yang lalu rupanya, Cikgu YuSong dan Aznan juga turut berminat. Aku dan Aznan merancang perjalanan sendiri tapi berjanji akan bertemu Cikgu YuSong sekeluarga di Kanchanaburi.

Hari 1. Khamis: Gurun -> Hatyai -> Nakhon Pathom.
07:20 (MY)
- Stesen KTM Gurun. Bersama Aznan.

11:30 (MY)
- Hatyai. Beli tiket Hatyai -> Nakhon Pathom. 680baht/pax
- Train#42. Special Express YLA-BKK.
- Makan tengahari di Kai Tod Decha, Hatyai.
- Jamak @Stesen keretapi

18:30 (TH)
- Train#42 lewat. Patut 16:20
- Sambil menunggu, aku charge hp kat tiang berbumbung
- Naik train#42 ke Nakhon Pathom

Menariknya train#42 ni... kami diberi kain selimut/gebaq, dihidangkan makan malam yang merupakan nasi, masak lemak isi ikan serta sup sayur/cendawan. Pada lewat malam, teh panas bersama roti+karipap sebagai supper. Kesemua makanan ada ditanda halal.

ZZzZzzzzz



Hari 2. Jumaat: Pekan Nakhon Pathom

07:30 (TH)
Subuh atas keretapi. Lewat sampai. Patut 4:36am. Lari 3jam. Tapi masih sempat kejar keretapi dari Bangkok/Thon-Buri ke Nam Tok. Ikut jadual TBR-NAT (Thon Buri - Nam Tok) akan lalu di Nakhon Pathom pada jam 8:57am.

Rupanya keretapi kami dari Hatyai naik tiada kepala. Patut la agak bising, enjin dibawah coach. Beli tiket Nakhon Pathom ke Nam Tok. Percuma untuk warga tempatan. 100baht untuk warga asing. Antara TBR-NAT boleh turun/naik mana2 stesen pada kadar yang sama.

Train: ORD-257 (TBR-NAT). 100baht/pax.

Ronda sekitar pekan Nakhon Pathom. Ambik gambar aktiviti pasar pagi berdekatan dengan Wat Phra Pathom Chedi. Wat terbesar disini. Dok cari kedai kopi halal. Tiada kelihatan - makan roti dengan snickers.

Super Mini Marathon and Fun Run 418 Yala

Date: 28 September 2014
Venue: Yala, Thailand
Distance: 4km and 13.5km
Contact: yala@mots.go.th | 073-213722
Website: www.patrunning.info

Super Mini Marathon and Fun Run 418 Yala

2 years in a row I went for half marathon distance, sadly this year no more. Thinking a return facing a torture hilly-open-straight route and finish without a single walking.. but the organizer remove 21km category this year.

From my experience.. travelling to Yala using main route is safe. Do read my 2012 and 2013 running report.

Check this website for trophy and vest design.
