Solomon Inter IPT Orienteering Cup 2011

Another day, another event with the UiTM Runners Club. This time we have our runners and the KRESMA athletes join forces and entered the Solomon Inter IPT Orienteering Cup 2011 at Kuala Woh, Tapah, Perak. Orienteering is an athletic event that requires navigation skills with the aid of map and compass through all the checkpoints plotted in the map. These orienteering challenger must go through all the checkpoints (or more correct term is "MARKERS") to gain points and win the event with the less time as possible.

The event was great and there are lots of elite and veteran athletes in long distance running and orienteering despite there have been shortage of participants due to the busy month of October for IPT students. The orienteering event were divided into two parts, the first part is the night orienteering and the second part was the day orienteering, both were estimated at 3 and 6 kilometers respectively. The night orienteering was named Burung Hantu while the day orienteering was named Burung Engang. Both of the runs are mentally and physically challenging and requires our runners to think ahead and plan their route by the same time having a stable endurance to run the course. It is an individual event and most of our runners were trying to compete amongst ourselves however the runners are still able to lend a helping hand for other URC members that are in need of help or stuck during the event.

There was a hard challenge for every runners from URC but we managed to get several medals despite the placing were mostly dominated by the UTEM students from Melaka. Here I managed to post several pictures from the Orienteering event. More pictures are expected to be uploaded to the UiTM Runner's Club Facebook page and by their members, so I hope you guys enjoy what we have right now. Happy running guys!

One Night in Putrajaya 15th October 2011

The Putrajaya Night Marathon on 15 October 2011 was awesome. All the runners finish their race with style and power, and I personally will be anticipating the organizers official time on their website. However I only posted one picture here, the rest of the picture will be uploaded on the UiTM Runner's Facebook Page or the runner's respective Facebook Account. We got finisher medals and shirt. The half marathoners and 10km runners finish early, good for them, but the hardcore 42km (marathon) took a while, they were tortoise slow, can't blame them. Happy recovery and see you in the next run!

URC AGM 2011

The UiTM Runners Club have gone through their Annual Grande Meeting with the president have stepped down from his seat and giving it to the new candidate which is Izwan Zakaria or he prefer himself to be called Throng ( I don't know the story behind this, I wish I knew ).

Unfortunately he was not present during the meeting as he was having a class that day, however there are several new members of the runners club joining as they share the same interest with all the existing members of the runners club members which is obviously running :3 ... We hope this runners club will continue it's passion and existence for the fellow long distance runners in UiTM.

The meeting was held at the Delima Hall College (Kolej Dewan Delima) the pictures below are the post meeting, most of the new runners have gone back home, these are the senior hardcore runners and athletes. I need to post some pictures of the scene, because if there is no picture it might not have happened.

PS: Having a 2 megapixel camera is so lame. :(
