Race Report – Larian Hari Keputeraan Sultan Azlan Shah 2011 7km



I have been looking forward to this race for awhile now as it’s my first ‘away race’. This race is held in honour of and to celebrate the birthday of His Majesty The Sultan Of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah. So I had high hopes for this running event and it did not disappoint.


Kuala Kangsar is about 3 hours away (by car) from KL. We too a drive yesterday and arrived about 5 PM. After settling the accommodation matters, we took a drive to survey the route (see here for my Pre Race Prep). After dinner and a bit of a drive, it was time to go to sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a great day.

Race Report- FT Day 2011 7km Run


I’ve done it. The FT Day 2011 7km run

What a surreal day. Last night I wrote about my pre race jitters. After I wrote that post, I tried to go to sleep but couldn’t. How do you sleep before a race. I tossed and turned on my bed for several hours until I finally nodded at 4:30 only to be rudely awaken at 5:30 by my alarm clock. I got up, had a shower, did my morning prayers and started to kit up.  Got to the startling line at about 7:00. The organisers had organised an aerobic workout as a warm up for the race. I have to say, I  was a bit moody and didn’t join in preferring instead to jog for a few minutes. Next time I have to stop being such a grump and join in whatever pre-race activities planned by the organisers. Good to see some of my cousin running in the same race as well. Also good to see colleague Terrence who turned up to support and take some pictures for me.
