Some of the basic rules remain such as wearing of running bibs, age limit for each categories and most importantly the true spirit of sportmanship and positive mindset.
The very same Back to Nature Relay was held at this venue last Christmas day, 25 December 2007 with 40 teams of 3 competing on friendly term. This beautiful lake located just beside the Taman Metropolitan Batu, off Jalan Ipoh was chosen again because of its strategic location and the many amenities available for runners to spend time with their family after the race.
Of all the relays that I had helped to organise, this is the BEST! With 53 teams (exceeding our target of 30 teams) divided into 5 different categories, all participants had a fair chance to compete within their own age group.
Its Fasting (Puasa) month, but our hardcore muslim supporters came out in full force to compete alongside their peers and put out a good 'fight'.
Age is not a barrier
