Running: Hulu Langat Trail Run 2015 (Selangor)


This was my first experience running trail at Hulu Langat Forest Reserve which is part of the State Forest Park during my participation in the Hulu Langat Trail Run 2015 last 26 April. The race venue is popular among the locals especially hikers for camping, trekking the forest trails, family picnics with its great swimming hole.

The 12KM trail run cost at RM80 consisted of a Salomon running tee, BIB and discount vouchers. Race pack collection was held 1 week prior to race date at World of Sports (WOS), Garden Midvalley.

Race Kit
Running Day
Used Waze app on my smartphone to get to the race venue. Took me about 30 mins by car to reach, 1 hour before the flag off time which was at 8.00am. Parking was no problem with RELA officials in duty.

Bumped into Yen Yen, Azrul and friend at the parking area. Nice to see a pre-water station tent by Extrajoss. There was a safety briefing at the starting line by race officials. The weather was sunny as at flag off time.

Pre-Water Station
The race route was dusty, muddy and absolutely hilly up to 200 metres of elevation. Few water stations with isotonic water like Extrajoss and also PowerBar were set up along the 12KM race route. Managed to make some new friends along the way too. Medical volunteers with their first-aid kit were seen at most checkpoints.

There were a few things that excites me during this trail run. First was the scenic view especially at KM4 water station. Since I don't really hike, getting to see such scenic view high up was rare. Second was the thrill crossing an actual river. There were BOMBA officials in duty together with volunteers for runners safety. The photographers were even taking photos while inside the river. But most important part is the friendly runners and volunteers at this event.

Managed to crossed the finish line at 2:10 minutes plus photo sessions, the queueing up for obstacle turns and water station stops. Received my finisher medal and collected the breakfast pack (a basic mee hoon) with watermelon at the finishing line by volunteers.

Event Area
Just a basic event area with sponsors tent like 100 Plus, Extrajoos. There was washing facility for my muddy shoes too. A decent photowall was available for photography session at the centre of the area. Met lot of familiar faces while strolling the event area. There was Fizan, Mell, Nora and Azrul too.

Left the area near to 11pm for early lunch with the gang.

An excellent trail run event. Love the race experience at this event. A quality and well design finisher medal. Good Salomon running tee design and colour choice. The XS was a little tight for me though. Think I should get the S instead during registration. Thank you to all photographers (official and non-official) along the race route. The water stations with Extrajoss and Powerbar along the race route were fantastic.

Summary: Excellent trail run event by organisor, sponsors and partners. I will definitely take part next year.

Event Recommendation: ★ (5/5)

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
