The inaugural Newton 25km/12km Challenge attracted thousands including many triathletes and foreigners.Runners started to pour in as early as 5.00am for the 25km run which was scheduled at 6.30am and the shorter 12km race at 7.00am.
This was the second largest participation from KPAC since SCKLM2010.More than 30 of our members competed in all categories.Several committee members and some office holders were there too.Hanson Quek,our vice president,Ng Thean Chor-secretary and his assistant Seah Leong San were all took part in the 25km challenge.
Morning was humid and hot.The route for both distances were very challenging with never ending hills and slopes awaited the runners.It reminded many of the Larian Penembak in Meru held early this year.The gruelling race saw the ambulance busy ferrying those who were unable to complete the run.
Eventhough there were many drink stations but it was not adequate.It was disappointed for those slower participants.Besides coming back without medals,the isotonic drinks station too close earlier.
Some of our runners made it to the podium.Jasni,Casey,Say Heong,newly joined Moey Wooi San and Alam Shah were among those performed splendidly,not forgetting our member from Kuantan,Tan Wah Sing who grabbed the second spot in the 25km senior veteran category.

Except for men open category, favourite runners swept most of the top position.Local boys,Vikneswaran,Jayakumar and Navin Kumar managed to complete a 1-2-3 finishing to deny them a clean sweep in the men open.Our members,Casey Lim Khon Seng who is based in Genting Highlands was fourth with Jasni Khairil and Gunaselan in hot pursuit.

Overall the organising was good except for a minor hiccup where a runner was robbed of his trophy when he was allegedly directed into the wrong path and eventually disqualified from the race.He was in top ten position when the mishap happened.
As this is a charity run,the organiser announced that all proceeds will go to the less fortunate such as old folks and orphanage homes.
KPAC's treasurer Jimmy Yang and secretary Ng Thean Chor were seen busy accepting application forms for the approaching Run for it 4 which is scheduled on 31oct2010.Registration can also be made online via www.marathonshop.com.my
