Let's Frost the Trail KL 09

Early this month(9th Oct), my company participate in Frost the Trail KL 09, run for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) organised by Frost & Sullivan. The event is a 8.1KM run across jungle trail @ the Forest Reserve Institute Malaysia (FRIM).

The race was schedule to began at 8am and I was there with my colleague 5 minutes late. As some of the VIP as well as participants were late, the race was eventually flagged off at 8.30am about 30 minutes delay which is rather early for Malaysian standard. Late is better than never right.

Upon arriving, the first thing we are required to do is register and sign the indemnity form.

After registration, we collected goody bag at the goodies collection point.

The goody bag includes some very interesting gifts which I will share with you later.

To participate in this race, which is open to all corporate Malaysian, each team of 4 runners will require a contribution of RM5000. The company I was representing had 4 teams of energetic young professionals which of cause include myself. The money raised from the race will be given to 3 beneficiaries, namely Pusat Kasih Sayang YWCA, Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Kurang Upaya KIRTASH and Yayasan Anak Warisan Alam (YAWA).

All in all there were a total of a total of 14 companies, 25 teams and 100 runners. This is my first time running such a distance, first time doing it on a jungle track and first time doing so without a single training before hand. I'm glad I was able to complete the entire run in 75 minutes despite not practicing at all

The freebies in the goody bag include a Frost the Trail T Shirt, M&N Chocolates, A notepad from Proton and a BMW.

Will certainly return next year, if my company continue to sponsor this race. Hope to see you guys there next year.
