This is a small scale event as it is limited to 200 participants. The run is well organized.
However, the organizer is a little slow to respond registration via e-mail. I strongly feel that they should acknowledge receipt and could confirm if it is within the first 200 or exceed the limit and and make prompt refund if participation is over the limit. I only get a confirmation of participation mail on 31 Jan 2013.
Registration - race kit is pre-packed. Collection was smooth

Prizes were offered to top runners in A category. It was just a fun run for me as I wanted to test 7km distance. Even at my peak, I won't make it to the top 50! Unfortunately, because I accompanied Akmal, I only ran at a faster pace in the last two laps. Any way, it was a good work out.
Afiqah did well to finish 11th. She was up with school athletes and for a no-time runner, that result was very encouraging. Akmal was too far away as he walked as much as he jogged.
11th position for Afiqah
