Report: Penang Biathlon

A run+bike event, using MTB and trail run. Organized by PAC and KOTRT. Registered in individual category which need to complete 3.5km biking, climbing and downhill of Botanical Garden hill. Then a 5km trail run. Cut of time.. 3.30hours (1:30h - Biking and 2h - running).

MTB
Really had a real experience of MTB riding. After flag-off at Municipal Park, pedaling 500metre on flat road to Botanical Garden. Then bukit!... macam @BM Biathlon. Peluh meleleh. Meleret. Menelong. Try to keep on pedaling using the lowest gear. Almost gave-up. Until 3/4 of hill - tunton basikal.

Before pushing the MTB, i was 5th position, after that sayur-sayuran. Flat road abit - kayuh, pushing and kayuh until a sign showing to downhill trail route. Oh! pundek.. bukit again dalam hutan... can't kayuh thru. Had to angkat/tanggung gerek + running thru trail route + naik bukit = Inside.. ^%&^!$(@#$)@#

Then trail + downhill.. pulun kayuh. Angkat gerek + run + pushing the MTB = luckily i wearing a glove. Then trail + downhill + curam = seriau aku nak kayuh. Fork mati.. front and rear. Kang naya jatuh dalam bukit. Pushing the MTB and running down. Jadi sayur-sayuran again. The MTB ride end at the starting line at Taman Perbandaran (Youth Park). Lempaq besikal. Tutuh ayeq and continue running heading to Botanical Garden again.

Run
- Able to potong back 4-5 on flat road.
- Then... bukit again. Doing walked + climbing in fast mode. = Merangkak pegang tangga
- Aiirrrrrr
"Got any plain water?"
"No.." said the volunteer
- Aiirrrrr
"Got any plain water?"
"No.." said the volunteer
- Aiiirrr..
"Got any plain water?"
"No.. but.. at Station no.5 got a water tap"
"How far?"
"15mins more"
..gulp! 15mins hill.. tinggi+lama tuh.

@Water tap.. Was drink like buka puasa.
Then continue run. Luckily it was a downhill. Lari.. Lari.. punya lari.. Cilakak tarak sayur dah... Until the finish line.

Good thing about Penang Biathlon - Got many volunteers. Waiting for you, showing the route and they inform to the next check point upon your arrival.

Timing..
5.3km of MTB = 1:09.26
3.5km of trail = 1:00.41
Total = 2:10.08
Finish in 15 out of 71
