Nice route, nice weather, and beautiful scenery around Taiping Lake Garden route for the first 3 to 4 km......

Slightly hilly from 4.6km to 5.3km route, 2 drink station, at about 5.7km and 13km, second drink station is a bit far from first drink station, prefer 5km one drink station. Distance marker are clear along the route.

The bad experience during this event is started late, just because of waiting for some VVIP to flag off the race.
