The XtraMile Run (Day 1)

Here’s a recap of what happened at the XtraMile Run earlier (June 17, 2011):

Warm-up exercise

6pm: The runners, sponsors, media and volunteers gathered at Putrajaya for the kickoff of the XtraMile Run.

A quick picture with Alex before he ran. I didn’t participate in the run as I was assigned to update people about what’s happening via twitter, facebook and blog. It was also good for me, since I can barely finish 5km without wanting to die. LOL

6.30pm: And they’re off!

8pm: Sunway Pyramid

The volunteers gathered in Sunway Pyramid to wait for Alex and other runners to arrive.

Mark your shoe print on the XtraMile Run banner!

Thank you Rudran, for helping me take these pictures!

Got shoppers and curious by-passers to participate in some activities and pledge to the cause. 10 minutes before Alex’s arrival, candles were lit as an encouragement for him to keep going.

10.15pm: Alex reached Sunway Pyramid after successfully completing the first 30km.

A short interview session, and he’s off to Dream Village in Glenmarie, Shah Alam!
