Participants began arriving at the place around 6.30 and entered into two lanes, one for under 21 and another is above 21. The first and third categories (men and women below 21) were flagged off by the assistant organizing chair person, Leong Sai Hou (Psycho) at 7am. 15 minutes later, the second and fourth (men and women above 21) were flagged off. Members of the club and some volunteers from the Malaysian AIDS council were stationed at certain points of the park to ensure that the participants remained on the right track and don’t wander onto the wrong path. They were also charged with upholding the rules and safety of the participants. At the halfway mark, a detour was set to direct traffic to the U-turn point with an ambulance stationed there. Along the path to the U-turn point, a water station was set up to quench the participant’s thirst. After collecting a ribbon from the U-turn point, runners ran through the track that they ran before and passed the detour to continue on to the finish line.
Nearly 50 minutes after they began, the first runner came in, hardly panting or puffing from the uphill/downhill distance run with a 2 or 3 others in tow. Not too long after, more participants started coming in, all within the time limit of 3 hours to complete the challenging run. At the finish line, one booth was taken up by the AIDS council to educate people about AIDS while another was occupied by S-Factor, distributing drinks to the tired runners. At 9, the AIDS Council had an interactive talk on AIDS with the participants who had already there. At 9.30, the Dance Club performed their lively and “hot” dance to keep the participants entertained followed by an energizing show by the Tae Kwan Do club (which included board breaking stunts). The prize giving ceremony began at 10am followed by lucky draws for the lucky few who spun the wheel for the draw. This was followed by a thank you speech by the organizing chairperson, Boey Winson (King Kong). So thus, the event has come to a close by 10.30am. This is yet another successful event organized by Sky Adventure Club of Taylor’s
