Penang Bridge International Marathon 2011

FacebookTwitterGoogle+

We arrived at 12 midnight and parked our car at the open car park just beside the starting line.  The facilities provided were good with toilet and shower and prayer tent.

The half marathon started at 2.55am and I reached the finish line at 5.30am. The full started at 1.55am. The weather was perfect with sea breeze flowing while running on the bridge.

The atmosphere was alive with 27,000 runners from all categories. Too many people and a very long queue even for free Milo drink. Not many booths available on sites. At 10am, it was too hot to wait for lucky draw.

From my Garmin Forerunner 405, the distance for half marathon is 21.27km and I took 2hr 34m to complete. A few minutes improvement from KL Marathon. Total calories was 1932 but I felt like millions was burned.

Not much photos. Too dark to shoot.

I hope to run full next year, insyaAllah.
