Report: Jalan Kaki ke Gunung Jerai

"Berjalan kaki ke Gunung Jerai", knowing that event organized by Government - Majlis Perbandaran Sungai Petani (MPSP), i was prepared for the worst. Not hoping for any convenience.

Call-up the person in-charge to get more info.
1. Non-competition event
2. No registration fee
3. Refreshment provided
4. Free t'shirt
5. Entitle for a lucky draw
6. Lorry and Land-Rover will be prepared to pick-up those who unable to reach to the Forestry Museum

Total distance up to highest point is 12km or 1380m above sea level, where Pusat Peranginan Gunung Jerai is located. Forestry Museum, located at 9km in the middle of route. Half way saja.

Base on my personal training, it took about 1:05minute to reach Forestry Museum. That was recorded somewhere in March ’06. Masa tu.. eager/train for Mt.K.

Sunday. Still in school holiday. Ajak bebudak+cikgu jalan sekali. Reach Kaki Gunung Jerai, Gurun at 7:35am. Cikgu went for registration and received 4 t'shirts... untuk 4 beranak hahaaa..

At the back of t. "The Malaysia Book of Record: Karnival Sepak Raga Bulatan Terbesar, MPSPK(Kedah) 2004".. ceh! nak perabih stock rupanyer. Quality.. boleh buat baju tidoq.

Decide to do light jog, just to test my leg condition. For Kids+cikgu... LandRover are waiting for them. More than a month++ not running/jog. Doing cycling with Reza and alone pusing Mount Jerai.

With kids at Start line Ke garisan.. Semula!.. Ke garisan.. Sedia.. Bang! Jangan larik!!.. jalan!

Should start at 8am, but maybe the VVIP still sleeping.. the flag-off was delay until 8:30am and start without him after alot of walkers were mumbling + matahari pun dah naik tinggi dah.

Only me and ah Chuah+wife, were regular runners. Lelain pi Penang kot for Penang Relay. Both of them dah pecut ke depan. After 5minute walk, can not tahan already. Ramai bebudak buat aku jadik sayur. Said bye2 to kids and jog.

For 30min still jog/climb non-stop. Potong habis bebudak. Left only a boy and Ah Chuah running in-front. Increased the mp3 volume, playing Sheila Majid oldies. Maintain the pace and enjoy the view.

At 7km/50mins, able to potong both of them. After 5mins running/climbing alone, Ah Chuah speed-up and left me behind. Penat. Start doing walking discipline.. plak.

There were 3 check-points with 3-4 volunteers (Pertahanan Awam) waiting along the route. And also ambulance van. – bagus.

One of the volunteers ask me while I stop asking for water..
"Nie competition ka?.. tengok abang dengan orang depan pulun lari.."
Unable not reply. Just geleng kepala - meaning No. Penat. Langgah ½ bottle of mineral water and continue try to chase AhChuah.

Doing run-walk-run-walk till Forestry Museum. AhChuah finished first. 50meter in-front of me. Timing 1:16minute. His wife also finished first for women category. But no prize. Cikgu+kids reach by LandRover a few minutes later.

Rupa2nyer... corner sikit kat Muzeum Perhutanan tu.. ada taman rekeasi. Tak pernah aku sampai kat situ. Cantek siot! Cuma air sungai kurang sikit. Hujan pon kurang.

While waiting for others.. we were served with nasi + kari daging + ayam goreng rempah. Enjoy the meal sambil nikmati pemandangan sawah bendang dibawah dan lautan di Selat Melaka.

Lucky draw..
AhChuah won a women hand beg.. but his wife not interested, so she gave to Cikgu.
Yeeeeaaaaaa... kena lucky DRAW!!!

Sebelum besurai... AhChuah was called for a hamper. A consolation for first finisher. He got what he wish for, earlier at starting line.

Back to Kaki Gunung Jerai (starting line), everybody waiting for a lorry and landrover. Semua pakat berebut naik. Buat muka sekupang + dukung bebudak, then the driver panggil cikgu naik dulu. Canteeek.

Aku continue running turun bawah until 1:30pm.
Kaki.. aduh! Sakitnyer jiwa-sepak-raga.

Finish line.
Booooo...
Makan bang..
Chuah and wife.. a running couple
