I had a great weekend – it was a fun dirty off road running in the Temburong District held at Bukit Patoi Recreational Park. My aim for this last race of the year 2009 was just to have fun and just cruising along.
Since most of the family members are joining the race, We decided to chartered the whole boat to Temburong. We assemble at BSB jetty around 6:10am and by 6:30am we departured to Bangar Temburong – a 45 minutes drive by boat.
We arrived at Bangar, Temburong at 7:08am. We straight away boarded the bus which was provided by the organizer for the participants from Bandar Seri Begawan.
We reached the park around 7:25am and we went straight to the registration area. The good thing about this race was that there was no registration fee. The winner of each category will received $1500 Brunei Dollar. Lumayan lumayan………
There were 2 categories for the Men and 2 categories for the Women.
This is the hardest and fun part of the race. Sliding down the hill. It was slippery and all the best off road shoes are useless here.
Among our families, Zaeidi reached first, then Aliuddin, followed by Hj Abidin, Suhaili and me.
The distance covered was around 4.35km and the route did not pass through the top of Bukit Patoi. Water bottles were provided at certain checkpoints. Medical and safety teams were also located at strategic points.
Overall, it was a good race. More fun than The North Face Singapore 2009. All the mud, cuts and bruises was well worth it.
Next year, for sure I’ll be coming here again and this time I’ll be competing, no more cruising mode.
