Report Red Ribbon Carnival and Dodgeball Tournament

By Aiman Cheah Tiong Chap

Date: 14 March 2009 (Saturday)
Time: 8.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.
Venue: Tapak 'A', Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
Organizer: Young Mercy, Cyberjaya University of Medical Sciences

I took part in the Jogathon and Treasure Hunt. The latter because of the change in the rules - from student to open and from 3 in a group to 4 in a group.

I was still exhausted when I was awoke by 6.00 a.m. I asked my student to give me a wake up call just in case I would still be in dreamland as I supposed to pick them up from school at 7.00 .m. Just as I left the house 10 minutes before 7.00 it began to rain cats and dogs. When I reached school, one of my students was already waiting for me. He was lucky to have avoided the heavy downpour. Shortly, I got a call from the other student who said he would be there. Never mind being late..... blame it on the weather.

We were fortunate as the rain gradually came to drizzling. We left school at around 7.20 a.m. and reached Taman Tasik Titiwangsa by 7.45 a.m. We registered for the Jogathon. It did not start until around 9.00 a.m. It supposed to start at 8.15 a.m. I was quite shocked that the response from the public was lukewarm for such an event. I think there were hardly 50 participants in the jogathon. Normally, I could see over a hundred participants in charity event, albeit the fee (donation) was much higher.
For this event, it was only RM7.00.

As I was not fit, I began from the back. It was an amazing race for me as I must have been going really slow. For the first time, I did not have to stop to counter oxygen debt. I completed the race in 13minutes 15 secs.
Not too bad as I finished ahead of both of my form 2 students. Anyway, I was among the last to reach the finishing line.

Later, I watched the dodgeball competition and read the newspapers while waiting for the treasure hunt to begin. As the rules have been changed, my students urged me to join their group. We had fun but it would be better if we had come out among the winners. There were only five teams and unfortunately, we finished last!

The Trikidz is back

Big task for UM students

UNIVERSITI Malaya (UM) has been given the responsibility to organise the TriKidz triathlon clinic and competition on March 21-22.

Stephanie Chok, an International Triathlon Union (ITU) qualified coach, said the sports science students would be putting their theoretical knowledge in running the event.

"The second and third-year undergraduates have been given the task to host the race as part of the event management course.

"Lecturer Dr Nadhratul Wardah Salman was impressed with the event when we organised the third and final leg of the competition at the sports centre last year. She felt that it would be a good learning curve for the students to take up the challenge to manage the meet." added Chok, a three winner of the National Triathlete of the Year award.

A total of 80 students will be part of the two-day programme to promote triathlon at grassroots level with the support from Triathlon Association of Malaysia.

The group’s leader, Mohd Hafiz Zainon, said they were eager to be part of a meaningful initiative.

"Several of us served as volunteers during the last meet but we will be taking full responsibility to organise the event this year."

"We are determined to put on a good show. We will apply the guidelines to ensure that we do not compromise on the children’s safety."

"Everyone in the group has been assigned their respective roles. We are required to submit our weekly report to our lecturer," said the 23-year-old Hafiz.

The organisers are expecting 200 competitors to feature in five sections — six years, seven to eight years, nine to 10 years, 11 to 12 years and 13 to 15 years. There will be separate section for boys and girls if there are more than five girls competing in the nine to 10 years, 11 to 12 years and 13 to 15 years age categories.

Chok will be leading a group of trainers to educate the beginners on four aspects — swimming, cycling, running and transition — on the eve of the race day.

The next legs will be held at Cyberjaya (June 27 -28), Membakut, Sabah (July), Johor Baru (November) and Putrajaya (December).

Entry fee is RM50 for each participant. For details, visit or call 014-225 0290 (Hairul Azwar Hashim).

Those who interested, maybe my 2008 report could helps.

Report Kuala Lumpur Tower International Forest Towerthon Challenge 2009

By Aiman Cheah Tiong Chap

Venue: Kuala Lumpur Tower
Date: 1 March 2009

This is my first run for this event. I must admit that it is far more challenging that running on a flat ground. Not only will you need strong heart, but also strong muscles for the legs.

Due to my poor physical condition, I decided to go the trial run on Friday, 27 February. The aim was to give me confidence to complete the run, rather than competing in run. It took me almost 23 minutes to reach the TH03 from the ground floor. So, that gave me confidence to complete the actual race in about 33 minutes.

I was happy that my run started at 9.05 a.m. That would give me more time to sleep! I am still 'a dinosaur' who needs 8 hours of sleep to be in the best physical condition.

I felt good on race day and arrived at the venue half an hour before the race. I started at the back as I would not be 'racing'. Any way, I was happy that I was among the middle pack...... through out the race. Not really with the last group. I took 7:34 to reach the stairs leading to TH03. That gives me the confidence to complete the race in 33 minutes.

The steps were dry and clear of empty mineral bottles until the first check point. Mr Sri Bala was very strict with participants - not mineral water bottles allowed! After that, it was not the same at other water stations. I bet that wet floors and empty bottles is just a bad sportsmanship tactics employed by some participants to slow down their rivals. The pride of winning is of greater importance than the lives and limbs of other participants?

I took 21:40 to complete the climbing of the stairs and my total time was 29:14. That was indeed a good timing for me.
