Running: MPKJ Mizuno Road Run 2015 (Selangor)


Registered for MPKJ Bangi Road Run 2015 as I was already planned to be in Kuala Lumpur for a short working trip. Registration fee was at RM75 for the 12KM category and RM35 for 5KM category with the usual expected participant entitlements. Event was held on 8 November 2015.

This was my first time running within the Bandar Baru Bangi district but kinda familiar with its route.

Had a running friend to collect my race pack on behalf on week prior to race date at WOS, The Gardens Mall. Race pack consisted of Mizuno event tee, BIB with timing chip and free Newton running socks.

Running Day
Head my way to the event area via Waze app on my smartphone by searching "Tasik Perdana Bangi". Parking was ample 100 - 200 metres away from the event area. Flag off was at 7.15am for 12KM and 7.20am for 5KM. Met MY365Runner Norazlina (Clin) and her friends at the starting line. Race route was flat suitable for all type of runners.

Basic running requirements such as water station, medic and traffic control were up to par. There was watermelons at one of the water station too. Traffic marshals from PDRM and event volunteers were seen along the race route. Saw Marathon celebrity Mohd Azmi GME around KM6 supporting participants and friends.

Completed the 12KM road race at 1:20 hours. Finisher medal was given at the finishing line together with other goodies such as bottle mineral water, cereal, bun and others. Regroup with Mohd Azmi GME and the other running firends at the event area for photography afterwards.

Minimal exhibition booths by event sponsors and partners. Visitors may also get the race event tee for sale at one of the tent there.

Review
Race event was up to my expectation. Well managed event with friendly volunteers. The photowall could be bigger or wider. Wish there were official photographers taking photos of participants though. It's unfortunate that the, podium winners prize giving ceremony was held at the end of the event. Most participants already left the event area. I may want to suggest lucky draws at your future event to keep the crowd around.

Summary: Excellent race event by organisor, sponsors and partners. However, there are still room for improvement for a more lively event area after the race.

Event Recommendation: ★★★★☆ (4/5)

  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
