Report: 10k Karnival Sukan 2007

Did you believe after 4 years of running, I still nervous when standing behind starting line. Gila babi punya. Felt that I want said to team manager - aku sakit perut or kaki aku dah capek. And sit down watching running event - But that lagi sakit jiwa.

Most of my colleagues put a high hope on me. Cilakak!. Every time I bump, they remind about mini-marathon (MM) - "What mini?" I reply.

Last time they held Karnival Sukan (KS) was in 2001 at Universiti Tenaga (UNITEN) and postpone until 2007. Probably no budget or in transition period between Tan Sri Salleh Sulong and Syed Bukhari.

At UIA, they charted student hostels and sport facilities for 3 days. Starting from Friday 21June to Sunday 24June. First time in UIA.. I was impressed with the mosque. Wuih! canteekk. Located in the middle administration building and take a chance to perform Friday prayer inside.

In KS, the groups were divided into six teams, Utara/Northern (MyCompany, Hicom-Honda, ZF-Steering and KLAS), Eastern/Timur, Glenmarie, Shah Alam, Central and Alam Flora. Sport events that play along 3 days were football, futsal, netball, volleyball, sepaktakraw, netball, ping-pong, squash, badminton, carom, dart, tennis, tarik-tali and the introduction of MM.

Scheduled as the last event, a 10km MM flag off on Sunday 7:30am was divide into 3 categories 10k for open (<35years old), 5km for men veteran and women. Then follow by the final match of in/out-door events.

Saturday night.
There was a concert by M.Nasir and Ramli Sarip at UIA stadium on big-company invitation. I was not interested although i'm big fan of both artists. Stayed in room and try to finish an inspiration book couriered by my friend a week before - Thank you. In 3 days i covered 3rd quarter of the book. The fastest book i ever read. Can't stop reading.

Blue - 10km and Red - 5km route

Sunday. 7:00am @Stadium. Half hour more. Gabra. Decide to plug-in my mp3 player along running. Scanning the runners thru attire and shoes and located only 3-4 are serious runners. One of them wearing a Singapore Marathon running vest but with Power brand shoes. Eeemm.. pinjam kot. Another guy with Awana Trailblazer vest... nampak ganas. Went talk and chat with him. Korek skit. Got Indians too but look like in veteran category. Sorang lagi with complete running suit with branded/rusty shoes.

1st 1km, i still running slow behind. We were running outside of UIA compound. By 2km i was lead the group. Running with big bike of UIA's police traffic make me felt like Kenyan. :P He would stop any vehicle came behind or against and guide me to running route

Route. Gila babi punya bukit. Naik. Turun. Naik. Turun. Naik. Naik. Naik. Turun. Naik. Flat road... probably 2-3km. While on flat... aku pecut and nobody behind. So i ran easy pace enjoy the songs. - Silap besar!

The rusty shoes guy was behind me. 5-6 steps behind. Terkejut beruk aku. I was ran gila babi until i don't know songs was played on my mp3 player. Each time on hillies he reduce the gap.

Until on last hill, my stopwatch shown 27mins and he sayur me while climbing. I though to gave him a chance and chase him on flat. He was on top and i still climbing (running with selow pace) and once i top of the hill...


The finish line was 400-500metre infront. And the rusty shoes guy pecut gila while running downhill with his team cheering him up.

Pundek. Kuda Kepang. – Finish in 31mins and tah berapa pak saad tah.

Actually..(kisah benar) while running (half route), i had some kind of dejavu. The images keep on flashing on my mind again.. again and again until i had to volume up the mp3 player to ignore it.
- The image of finished in 2nd.

Overall the mini-marathon was won by Timur team. Depa kutip banyak mata/point in women and veteran category.

Until 1pm, my Utara team won tarik-tali, ping-pong, sepak-takraw, football and futsal. And the comittee declare our team as a winner in Karnival Sukan 2007

Yeah! Proud of it. UTARA!

With Mizi. A regular runner in veteran category.

Thursday, 21 June 2007


I will miss a huge Penang Bridge Marathon (PBM) this year. :( They said more than 17,000 were registered from over 25 countries. Wuih! Reban jambatan tuh! Run in PBM memang best. Mana tempat lagi yang boleh lari lintas laut, no wonder they attact more and more runners each year.

But one thing i should remind... berak + kencing puas2 before start running. There is no place buang 'hajat' on the bridge. Kalau tak malu... try bubuh kat divider in front of 17,000 runners passing-by. If can tahan... then you can stop at Toll Plaza. That was happen to me last year in the middle of the bridge. Terkemut-kemut. Until at Toll Plaza.. thanks god... it disappear. Blink!. I don't know where it goes.

If you ran in IPBR (Int. Penang Bridge Run) in 2003 and never in Penang after that, don't expect to see kenyan/elite/top runners on opposite lane. You'll know what i mean. Better layan laut + 'marka' on the run.

This Sunday... same with you. I'm racing too. But at different event/location. Aku ngan 9org lagi mewakili subsidiary company in north region will be running in 10k event big-company sport day. There are also other in/out door events which start this Friday until Sunday.

First time running event include, so i don't know my peluang. Maybe got kaki also in other teams. Target. Probably top10. (but iisssyyy...deep inside i wish for top3)

Those yang pi Penang Marathon.. all the best.
Sapa yang lari depan aku Ahad ni - Aku sumpah nko terberak tengah jalan before finish line.

From TheStar: Adventure race targets foreign participants

PENANG Eco-Challenge, an ad-venture race targeting partici-pants worldwide will be held for the first time in Penang next month. The two-day event from July 28 jointly organised by the Penang Municipal Council and Knights of The Round Table Club (KOTRT) aims to attract 50 teams, including locals from Johor, Pahang and Kuala Lumpur.

Council secretary Ooi Chin Loo said mountain biking, trail running, water sports and physical challenge activities, like rock climbing were among the activities lined up for the adventure race.

He said mountain biking would cover Pulau Betong, Bukit Gen-ting, Teluk Kumbar and Gertak Sanggul.

Water sports events will be held at Pulau Betong coastal area while trail running will be held at Gertak Sanggul and the coastal area of Pulau Betong. The adventure race is organised in conjunction with 50th Merdeka anniversary and Visit Malaysia 2007.

"We hope to get Finance Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk Seri Dr Helmi Yahaya to flag off the race," he told a press conference at the launching of the logo for the adventure race by Youth, Sports, Women Develop-ment and Community Committee chairman Datuk Jahara Hamid recently.

The entry fee for the race is RM120 for a three-member team. It covers one night accommodation, welcome breakfast, lunch, dinner and medal. The top five prizes are RM2,000, RM1,000, RM500, RM300 and RM200. Medals will be given to those who complete the race. Fifty teams are expected to take part in the race.

Ooi also said the council was promoting its Clean, Active, Sporty and Healthy (or CASH) campaign with more programmes in the pipeline.

Heard about Terence.

Late received the info as I on leave on last week of school holiday. Tersandar aku kat kerusi office when open my mailbox. Speechless for 10mins try seeking and reload memories running/laughing with him.

Although I’m not regular running in KL but thru the blogs and emails.. We develop as friends.

On last Friday 8th of June on 12:30pm, Terence Leong or Penguin 6 passed away peacefully at his home after a year fighting the brain tumour.

You will be greatly missed and the blog too.

At Eastern By-Pass an open area with paddy field on left & right, there were many bug-rogers (insects from paddy field) flying and attack on my face especially eyes. Can't see a thing. My bike not equip with flash-light and only hoping cars + bikes could see my bontot.
