Race Report: Putrajaya Night Marathon 2011

Location: Dataran Putrajaya, Precinct 3
Date/Time: 15th Oct 2011 @ 8:20 pm
Category: F - Men Open 21km
Bib: F 3167
Distance: 21.21km (by Garmin FR 405)
Timing: 1'50:26 (Gun Time) ; 1'50:10 (Net Time)
Average Pace: 5:12 per km
Rank: 36th

I was stop running after Muar 21km on 9th October, and night run usually are tough for me, not putting any hope for this race, just take it as my LSD training.

Flag off at 8:20pm for half marathon category, just run with my own pace, I can feel the heat along the way, only can feel windy after 12km onwords.

Drinks station every 3km, sufficient enough and serve isotonic drink as well. Distance marker are clear enough, direction marker for full and half marathon seperate junction was not that clear, a big sign board with small wording printed on A4 paper.

Run the first 5km with 24:31, I know that I am going to complete the race above 1:50. Kevin Ooi catch up with me at 8.5km, pace with him until 10km and I was give up, run with my own pace again. After the timing chip station at 16.5km, meet Kevin Ooi again, this time I try to pace with him again, but he was getting faster after the last water station at 19km. I am failed to catch him and his was about 200 meter plus infron of me when reached finishing line.

Crossing finishing as my estimation, 1'50:26. Received a medal with a red colour 21km finisher Tee. Lucky that I pace with Kevin for from 16.5km onwards, if not I will run with my PB, Personal Bad again after Sundown 2010.

Race Report: Muar Charity Run 2011

Location: Dataran Tanjung Emas, Muar, Johor
Date/Time: 9th Oct 2011 @ 6:37 am
Category: A - Men Open
Bib: m 1054
Distance: 21.17km (by Garmin FR 405)
Timing: 1'45:57
Average Pace: 5:00 per km
Rank: 18th

My 2nd time home ground base half marathon, give up KRI 12km on the same day, simply because want to balik kampung, and also top up my half marathon quota for this year.

Same as last year, heavy rain about 30 minute before flag off, run about 5 km under drizzle, but the whole route was wet due to heavy rain before flag off.

Different route with last year, started at Dataran Tanjung Emas, run along Jalan Abdul Rahman towards batu Pahat direction, turn in to famous San Chai Temple at Parit Unas, and run along the kampung road back to Jalan Junid and Tanjung Emas area. Muar known as flat land, not hilly route at all, I can said this is the most flat route I ever ran before.

Water station, been informed by the MC before flag off, there are 7 water station, but I felt I was been cheated, only 5 water station at 5km, 10km, 13km, 17km and 20km. And all are purely water station, I was regret that I forget to hide my own isotonic drink along the road side on Saturday. Suffering after 13km onwards due to no isotonic drink.

Distance marker and direction signage are enough, at least nobody missing in the race, I hope so...

Generally satisfied with the event, the only two things to improve are:
1. Supply isotonic drink for 21km runner
2. Quality of medal

Race Report: adidas King Of The Road 2011

Location: New Pantai Expressway, Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya
Date/Time: 2nd Oct 2011 @ 6:45 am
Category: A - Men Open
Bib: A 0956
Distance: 16.74km (by Garmin FR 405)
Timing: 1'20:57
Average Pace: 4:50 per km

Flag off at 6:45am, run from Sunway Pyramid towards west direction and u-turn before Persiaran Jengka, run towards east direction along NPE, u-turn at Jalan Templer junction and back to Sunway Pyramid.

I try to squeeze myself to the front of starting line, just to avoid jam during flag off, run much more faster than my expectation, perhaps chasing and pushing by too many fast runners around me. The path are quite clear for me until I reached the 10km u-turn juction.

Saw finishing arc after ran out from the tunnel, speed up and push myself for last few hundred meter, saw brother Tey Eng Tiong was there and he managed to snap my pia face photo.

Crossing finishing with 1'20:57, out of my expectation.

My split time and pace:

Split    Time          Distance        Avg Pace
          ( h:m:s )           km                 min/km

1          18:29            4.00               4:37
2          19:27            4.01               4:51
3          19:38            3.99               4:55

           1:20:57        16.74             4:50

adidas King Of The Road, generally a well organize event, drink station every 3 km, serve water and isotonic drink, distance marker almost every km. Nice route to run, not so hilly, just need to run on the flyover above Kewajipan roundabout.
