The first batch of 21km Fun walkers

Chen KH - his 1st overseas run & miss the podium finish by 1 placing.

John, just recovered from his recent fall in a race did equally well.
Eliza and Sharon - the 'Happy Twins' pacing one another throughout the race. Eeemmm ... such a happy partnership

Ho Wai Kin (Bib No : A015) the 21 year old participants with learning disability. What a courageuos attempt! He had been training for almost 3 months to prepare for this race. (left-right: Soon, Oon, Francis, Ooi, Jenap, Julie & Wai kin)

Wai Mun, ran an additional 6km for making a wrong turning after the 8th km. Amazingly, she still emerged the 2nd runner up in the race with a BIG smile. Thats what SPORTMANSHIP is all about! Behind her is Jenap (in blue t-shirt). She is a prominent figure in our local races with her jovial and colourful appearence.
Klaas(in black/yellow vest), the tallest among all emerged 1st runner up in the Men Open category beating some of the younger runners.

The last 7km 'killing stretch'. This is where Chen KH suffered the heat from the blazing sun.

Francis and Ng SP pacing each other at the last 7km.
