So, when they were told about this 12Hour walk, without hesitation they both volunteer to be part of the event. They started training dilligently 2 months prior to race day.
They arrived at 7pm sharp at Putrajaya. I briefed them on the rules & regulations and off they go at 8.00pm sharp with the rest of the crowd of more than 650 walkers.
