One of the biggest event in Bandar Sungai Long is coming again on this year.
Sungai Long Medical Center Fun Run 2016
Here are some photos on the Sungai Long Fun Run actual day, 17/04/2016.
Saw runners are gathering up at starting venue since 05:40 where we are still searching for parking place.
Compare to previous years that majority are local residents with kids, now there are much more UTAR students.
Info counter, goodies bag collection point and various booth that set up since a day before.
Fluorescent orange Running T-shirt design for 2016.
Warming up session.
The Starting and ending point.
Good idea of starting on 06:45, where runners can avoid sun burning from current hot weather and ease the traffic congestion from the famous Sungai Long Sunday Morning Market.
From Sungai Long, we run across Bandar Mahkota Cheras towards the 3KM forest trail.
Same as year 2015, the forest trail that will colour up your shoes.
Another year of successful running event and the goodies bag are one of the most generous as compare to other “famous” running event out there that cost a bomb. Thanks for the hard-work from organisers and looking forward for Sungai Long Fun Run 2017 .
After years of heavy use on Suunto Ambit (first generation) for outdoor sports, the strap is starting to break off.
As image above, even the screw on the left need to be tighten up from time to time, else it will just drop off like once i did: Suunto Ambit Strap Screw fall off !! Got it repaired from UFL. Averagely i will check and tight it in every 2 weeks.
Recently, my Suunto Ambit doesn’t pick-up heart rate data consistently from stock Suunto ANT Heart Rate Belt as usual. It create a box shape heart rate graph as move29582215, result incorrect PTE (Peak Training Effect) and display wrong recovery time calculation.
Decide to change the battery in centre piece of belt, battery model of the belt is CR2032, as stated in official site: Comfort Belt Battery Kit. Battery cover located at the back, easy to open with tiny edge of tool such as flat head screwdriver. I took out the old Maxell battery, replaced with new purchased Sony CR2032, tested it and signal is now strong by transmit heart rate in “real-time”.
After successful of Hospital Sungai Long Fun Run 2013, the organiser decide to hold another one this year. There are a slight changes for the distance (previously 8.4km) and schedule, so do refer to details below. The registration will be closed on 6th April or when it hit 2000 participants. Certificate will be given for all runners, lucky draw session with mystery gifts and medals to be won for top runners.
