Running: EMPTA Charity Run 2015 (Kuala Lumpur)



After 6 weeks of cheat day, I decided to run 10K in the EMPTA Charity Run 2015 on March 15 held at my least-favourite run route, Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur. 

Opted for this event as pre-run and mileage towards the upcoming 2XU Compression Run 2015 in Singapore.

Update: After serious consideration, 2XU Compression Run 2015 SG have been postponed because it will coincide with the state funeral of the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew and, out of respect for him and his family. New race date to be advise by 10 April 2015.

Race Day
Due to outstation-work, I had to write via email to the organisor in regards of my race pack collection. Glad that the organisor allowed me to collect on the race day itself as early at 6am. 

No timing chip provided in the race pack though. Left my coupon that was attached with the race bib in the registration box for lucky draw later.

Pre-Run Stretching 
Bumped into a runner-friend Calvin, from RHB half Marathon during my way to the starting line 5 minutes before flag-off. Nothing new along the race route to report. Most basic facilities were available for participants. Traffic and water stations were well managed. St. John Ambulance volunteers were seen at every check-points. 

To be honest, it was a tough race for me this time with no training for almost 6 weeks. Totally need the oxygen at KM3.

Managed to complete the race course at 01:06 on my Nike+ Running. Got my finisher medal and a bottle of water at the finishing line.

Event Area
The event area was small but suitable for the total numbers of participants in the race event. There was watermelons at one of the booths for runners. There was an event photo wall for photography session.

Met Ameeyn from MY365Runners while waiting for the lucky draw session. Saw some bicycles on stage as lucky draw prizes.

Review
Nice finishing line with timing display. Finisher medal design was a pull-factor - Nice! Average vest design and material. 

Tons of friendly participants and volunteers at the event area. Very less of photographers covering the event though. It would also be best if the organisor could provide timing chips to participants for accurate splits and finish time.

Summary: A good race event. Good job to EMPTA, Pacers Sport, sponsors and partners.

Event Recommendation: ★★★☆ (3/5)

  1. KISAH SUKSES
    Assalamu alaikum wr wb,,senang sekali saya bisa menulis dan berbagi kepada teman2 melalui room ini, sebelumnya dulu saya adalah seorang Pengusaha Butik yg Sukses, kini saya gulung tikar akibat di tipu teman sendiri, ditengah tagihan utang yg menumpuk, Suami pun meninggalkan saya, dan ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini, saya coba buka internet untuk cari lowongan kerja dan secara tdk sengaja sy liat situs pesugihan AKI SYEH MAULANA Di Website/situnya Saya pun langsug hubungi beliau dan Semua petunjuk AKI saya ikuti dan hanya 3 hari, Alhamdulilah benar benar terbukti dan, semua utang saya lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha, kata kata beliau yang selalu sy ingat setiap manusia bisa menjadi kaya, hanya saja terkadang mereka tidak tahu atau salah jalan. Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir Tuhan. Takdir macam apa? Tuhan tidak akan memberikan takdir yang buruk terhadap kita, semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian seberapa kuat Anda bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan tidak akan merubah nasib Anda jika Anda tidak berusaha untuk merubahnya. Dan satu hal yang perlu Anda ingat, “Jika Anda terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun, namun jika Anda mati miskin itu merupakan salah Anda, saya juga tidak lupa mengucap syukur kepada ALLAH karna melalui Ritual Penarikan Dana Hibah AKI ZYEH MAULANA saya Bisa sukses. Jadi kawan2 yg dalam kesusahan jg pernah putus asah, kalau sudah waktunya tuhan pasti kasi jalan asal anda mau berusaha, AKI ZYEH MAULANA Banyak Dikenal Oleh Kalangan Pengusaha Dan Artis Ternama Karna Beliau adalah guru spiritual terkenal di indonesia, jika anda ingin seperti saya silahkan Lihat No Tlp Aki Di website/internet ~>KLIK DISINI<~ Wassalam
