KRI 10k 2005 - Report
I read your blog. And I know this year's race wasn't that perfect esp at the finishing line there. Because the KRI committees who create this idea, they didn't expect that the runners will come back at the time range 45m - 1hr. They missed to analyse this. Thats why it creates a long queue at the finishing line. They thought this system will create less problem than last year which they split up each category at the finishing line. But, I still prefer the way like the previous years.
During entering the results, we got few duplicate run numbers. This is because the ING people who were writting the results at the finishing line, wrote the wrong numbers and some timing were not clear.
Case about traffic. We paid the RELA, but because of the rain, they hide themselves at the shelter. Summore the can said "We've got no insurance covered, how if we got sick? Is KRI gonna pay the medical fees for us???". That's why no one stop the cars from coming inside to the finishing road there.
The result was out on the same day. Im not sure if it's published at Polo Ground because we did passed a copy to
the person in charge there as I was in the International School. And we published another copy at International School, for runners to collect their certificates. The certficates were printed at 12pm.
I hope next year I will have a chance to participate. For 6 years Im helping them as a volunteer for the 10K race. This year's medal, trophy and cert really attracted me. They trophy cost RM90++ each.
Anyway, congrats on your wife. My timing and her's about the same, if I participate also can get 1.... hehe. Im compiling the results. Later will publish in the website.
