The Buff® Skyrunner® World Series

The Buff® Skyrunner® World Series kicks off Sunday, May the 7th . The first race of the Series is a new race in the El ChicoNational Park in Hidalgo, Mexico.

These are the eight races in the 2006 Buff® Skyrunner® World Series:

07 May 2006 - Hidalgo, Mexico
28 May 2006 - Zegama-Aizkorri, Spain
11 Jun 2006 - Valmalenco-Valposchiavo, Switzerland
25 Jun 2006 - OSJ Ontake SkyRace, Japan
23 Jul 2006 - Dolomites SkyRace, Italy
03 Sep 2006 - SkyRace Andorra, Andorra
17 Sep 2006 - Sentiero delle Grigne, Italy
30 Sep/01 Oct 2006 - Mt. Kinabalu Climbathon, Malaysia

2,600 metres of vertical climb attend the participants of this 25 km long race through valleys, along rocks, by rivers and lakes.

08 May 2006 - First 2006 World Series race

Favourite Ricardo Mejia was the star of the show in the first Buff® Skyrunner® World Series race of the season in Hidalgo, Mexico, Sunday, May 7. Mejia established a 6’ lead from the start which he retained to the finish, closing in 2h10’28”. Fellow Mexican, Miguel Leon was second in 2h16’11”, followed by Canadian World Mountain Running Champion, Jason Loutitt, 2h16’27”. Italian Fulvio Dapit, third in the 2005 World Series, was in fourth place.

The 25 km race was more demanding than anticipated under the mid-day Mexican sun, with many runners summitting the 3,050m pass around noon. The altitude took its toll too, favouring the more acclimatized Mexicans, another factor that made this new World Series race a difficult challenge.

Monica Ardid from Catalonia, the 2005 Spanish Mountain Running Champion, was first to finish in 2h50’45, followed by Marta Vidal, Euskadi (Basque Country), in 2h54’14”, and Mexican, Xochtl Recilla de la Cruz, 3h01’33”. Italian Daniela Vassalli was fourth.

Excitement is already growing for the second event on May 28 in Zegama, Basque Country, Spain where the world’s top skyrunners will battle for leadership in the 8-race World Series with last year’s champion, Briton Rob Jebb defending his title with the rest of the Saab-Salomon Team; Catalan, Agustí Roc; Italians Bruno Brunod and Jean Pellissier; Ricardo Mejia looking for the top slot and 2005 World Champion Corinne Favre.

Champion: Ricardo Mejia Hernandez - Mexico

3rd: Jason Loutitt - Canada

2nd: Marta Vidal


22 May 2006 - Exciting line-up for the second World Series race

The race is certainly one of the most exciting races in the Series for the number of top athletes participating. In this second race, the first took place in Mexico May 7, the runners competing here will include those leading the ranking for the rest of the season: runners such as Briton, Rob Jebb, last year’s Buff® SkyRunner® World Series champion and also course winner last year, together with fellow team members Simon Booth and Nick Sharp; current Series’ leader, Mexican,Ricardo Mejía, winner of the first event; Italians Bruno Brunod, Fulvio Dapit, Jean Pellissier, Marco Rusconi, Fabio Bonfanti, Mario Poletti, Carlo Bellati… and the runners from Catalunya, Euskadi and Andorra.

In the women’s category, ranking leader, Catalan Mònica Ardid will confront the current 2005 Series’ champion, Corinne Favre from France; Italians, Emanuela Brizio and Daniela Vassalli; Catalans Anna Serra, Ester Hernàndez and Teresa Forn¸ British runners Angela Mudge and Sharon Taylor; Tanya Pacheco from Venezuela and Marta Vidal and Alicia Olazábal from Euskadi.

A mountain race over the classical marathon distance (42km) with a total elevation gain of 5,472m on the Aratz massif, the Sierra del Aizkorri and four of the highest peaks in the Basc country. A gruelling course along mountain paths and trails in a stunning natural setting. The start is at Zegama, 296m and, with a series of technical ascents and descents, reaches a maximum altitude of 1,551m. The men’s record stands at 3h54'44" and the women’s 5h03’57”.

MP3 player.. kaput

Came to office/working-day by bike. Wake-up 1/2hour earlier than normal. 5:45am. Mandi. Subuh. Packing kids stuffs into car. Packed for myself - towel, office uniform, extra spender and hair cream. 6:30am - start pedalling. Slowly.

Weather - a bit cold. Passing bunch of kids waiting for school bus. Still dark. Careful, looking for any potholes. Roads, not too busy yet. Still early. Got two lanes both sides. For cars and motorcycles.

The distance between home to office is 11km. Took me half an hour. Target to reach office before 7am. Enough for me to get re-fresh again. Mandi, changed, slot-in, hide my bike inside store and had a breakfast.

07:45am - Potong kayu api
10:00am - 20mins Tea break. Skip. Read newspaper.
10:20am - Potong kayu api
01:00pm - Pulun lunch
03:00pm - 15mins tea break. Pulun for carbo-loading
05:00pm - Cabut. Usually 5:15pm baru boleh cabut.

To Sport Complex. Get changed.
5:30/25pm - Pedal another 11km back home.

That's my new routine. 22km bike daily.
Save fuel consumption, clock-in earlier, more bike/bike-run.

Actually i dislike the idea of "Restrict the Brand X Motorcycle Park Inside". Already bought 2 motocycles from company. For my ayah and brother, using staff loan - still hutang. The idea.. really menyusahkan, mostly orang bawah such as operators, trainee, contract staff likes cleaners, gardeners, securities. Not everybody afford to buy new motorcycle - buka buku 555 baru.

Why i said menyusahkan..
The distance from entrance Post Guard to Main office is about <2km. So pepagi buta ramai brand X owners walking. If lucky, somebody will stop. Pick them up.
- Won't comment more..

Bike: Home to/back Office. 22km
Run: 5km
First time, did a bike-run. Try to do that before... but never make it. Bontot sakit. Peha kebas. Lutut lembik. Serupa macam syok naik kereta laaa.., dapat duduk, kena aircond.. mana best tukaq naik motor.

Once step-down from bike and start running... arrrgghhh!!! berat kaki. kebas.. etc
Wish i could turn back and kerabat balik naik gerek.

Hati mau buat 10km... but mind said...
"Let's do 5km first for starting.."
- I did. Run non-stop.
- Puashati.

Bike: Home to/back office. With same routine as on Monday. 22km
It's a bike day today. Add another 20km. Office - Gurun - SMK Gurun - Perwaja - Bedong - Sg Lalang - Bandar Laguna Merbok - Eastern by-pass - Semeling - AIMST and home.
- Bike: 42km

Bike: Home to/back office.
Run: 9km. Trail route. Tye Eng. Did training PR.
After bike. Transition (drop beg, helmet and drink abit). Calm down - 9km. Run slow for 1-2km. Then ran on comfortable pace. No speed run. Terkezut aku.. i slashed 1 mins from training PR. Thanks.. bike.

Bike: Home to Office only. 11km.
Return... Cikgu mai ambik aku. Had to stay back at office until 11pm. Upgrade server system.

Rest day. Visited Alex. He undergo an operation yesterday. Plan to visit him last night.

SP Bikers also rehat. No ride.
Kids + cikgu pi sekolah.. Alone. 8am, ambik gerek. Kayuh. Pusing Gunung Jerai. Home - Merbok - Yan - Guar Chempedak - Gurun and Bedong.

A bit improve on my cycling. Did 60km in less than 2hour. No pit-stop for 100Plus. Just depend on my drinking bottle.

Then continue with 5km run to AIMST and U-turn.

It was 10am. Matahari terik. Empty 2 bottles before run. Half-way. Was exhausted. Kering tekak. Just keep-on running non-stop. Sometimes melelong. Panas. Terik.

Sampai rumah - lega.

Report: Alor Star Mini Marathon

I'm tired, exhausted, thirsty, dehydrated.. and they gave SunQuick - "TQVM!"

As stated in registration from. The race start at 7:30. But 7:30 thay start warming-up, aerobic dance... bla.. blaaa.. blaaaah. Nearly 8am.. baru start. Matahari sudah naik tinggi. 21km not start yet!.

There were two 21km categories. Men and Women open.

Running route, Jalan Pantai Johor... passing nice scenery of paddy field, then Mahkamah, Ampang Jajar, Masjid Aman, Lebuhraya Sultan Abdul Halim then inside Alor Star town, Pekan Rabu, Stadium and end at Wisma Darulaman.

@5km. 1st water-station. They served SunQuick.
Skip.. Hoping for a plain water for next w/station

<@10km - was running smooth. Racing with 3-4 young army. Potong, dipotong, potong, dipotong again and goes on. Until reaching 2nd water-station. Left geng army behind. Pick-up water cup. Sip on run. Hah!! SunQuick lagi.. manis nak mampus!!.. melekat ditekak. "Plain water ada ka?!"
"Tak dak!"
"Sh*t.. "
dalam hati..

Terus buang. For me.. sweet drink not help on the run. Running with gula melekat ditekak.. Terseksa!! Plain water laa.. or air paip pon tak pa...

Looking at my stopwatch... 45.45 - Aiiyooh! cepatnyer. I could do 1:40.

Matahari tinggi. Panas. Keta, lori, moto, bas, gerek racing pon dah penuh kat jalan. Polis dok sibuk jaga trafik bagi laluan untuk runners. Passing junction, I gave TQ sign for them for a long queue. I know dalam hati depa.. sure maki seranah.

15km. 10meter to reach 3nd water station..
"Plain water ada ka?!" - jerit!
"Tak dak!"
"!@$%$%/>%^&*(+("/>@(&^" - maki seranah/berjela.. inside laa.

Skip again..
Timing was 25.07 (1:11.53) from 10km mark. 3 Pompuan Open sudah potong aku. Devamani, Siam and another indian. My pace.. drop. Really need plain water. Keep searching any water taps around. Wish.. i bring cash to buy mineral water. Mata hitam pun sudah naik atas.

For me.. running 10km without drinking water, it's OK. But 12-13km... need it badly. Couldn't focus on the run. Cari paip air. Really dehydrated.. Run slow gila. Ada sorang mamat army tu.. aku left him very far behind.. sampai aku pon tak nampak - Dah potong aku.

Stopwatch.. 1:30. A sign-board shown "Bandar Alor Star 4km"
Hah! Wisma Darulaman.. sure lagi 1km from Bandar Alor Star (4+1km). Base on my timing @1:30.. only 2-3km more to finish line. Habis! No top 20 lagi dah..

Reach 4th w/station @ Bangunan JKR - Tutuh berkandaq ayeq SunQuick. 4-5 cups. Burrrr!! Kenyang.. and walk!! 1:45. Patut habis dah. And i know the road very well... lagi 2-3 km lagi baru sampai.

Run-Walk-walk-walk-run-walk... Was thinking.. This my worst 21km timing. Sure > 2hour. Pasing Stadium Darulaman, Bomba, Jln Sultanah and Menteri.. then slow jog until finish line. 1:59.18. Teroookkk.

Terkezut aku... the marshall gave a position card. - Still top 20 hahahaaaaa.. lawaknyer! - alhamduliah.

1. I really hate if government organized a run event for first time. Be extra pre-caution. Be prepare/equip yourself with drinking water, carry some cash and hoping for fun run only.. no PR please.

2. Very late flag-off time. Bagi aku takpa... but what about other runners behind. I mean... >2-3 hours finishers. 21km category MUST flag-off.. paling last at 7am. 6:30am - Cantek.

3. This Alor Star Mini Marathon... more on entertainment event. Sing songs, dancing, bands, karaoke and etc..

4. Collaborate with Persatuan Olahraga Amatur Kedah Utara... but i think this politician org.. They not runners and understand runners needs. My suggestion.. better collaborate with running club such as Alor Star Jogging Club (ASJC) or Jitra running club. Ask for advise.

5. The distance... please.. kasi ngam 21km. Plus-minus 500m - it's OK.

6. Alor Star Mini Marathon?! Should be Alor Star Half Marathon.

7. Thumb-up to police-men - taking care of traffic.
