The Second KPT Orienteering 2011

The second KPT (Kementerian Pendidikan Tinggi) Orienteering 2011 was held in Pagoh, Johor. It was an initiative from the government to promote the 1 Malaysia concept through sport activities like orienteering by having an open event where all students from every races can participate. This event was open to IPTA and IPTS.

It was a competitive event, but the uitm runners managed to get a good position in the event, especially the UiTM Runners. Who we are if we cannot win in running? Still the girls of the UiTM Runners managed to beat the boys with the girls having the 1st place in their categories while the boys managed to gain 3rd. At least the UiTM Runners Club managed to get a trophy and some medals! Here are some of the pictures from the Orienteering Event! The race results will come in shortly.

Resting after the race, the weather was blistering hot that day, most of the runners got sunburned
