Report: Dnonce Penang International Hiking Challenge 2012

Same route as I did Cendana Hikathon, Penang Biathlon 2006 and Penang Biathlon 2007. Started at Taman Belia, heading to Moon-Gate (a few hundred metre before Botanical Garden) and start hiking up-hill to Cendana Hill

Still got no bib/register a week before race. Registration already closed since 12 April. Called organizer and merayu - not a chance. Registration already reach quota she said.

Two week before away to Sabah Adventure Challenge, I still thinking about the registration. Afraid that my legs kaput and my RM60 fee gone. Fortunately a week after SAC, kaki sudah ok and terbakaq for another race.

Thanks to Cikgu Chan Kian Teck a runner from Kampar, Perak. he unable to take part and sold his veteran bib+tee to me. Yey!

Passing Moon-Gate, we started hiking. Try ran but last only a few staircase. + runners 'traffic jem'. Another excuse to me for not running :) Jadi sayur..

Until top of Cendana Hill.. Descending. Hilang lenguh pinggan. Start running, jumping and sliding downhill.. Huih syiok lari turun bukit... but lutut kena kerja keras sikit. Sayur back and disayur by 3 female. Actually I gave a way for them - lady first :)

With LunarGlide II (not a trail shoes), I crossed finish line in 1:22.12. The last top10 Men International Open category did 53mins

Official result here.
