Happy New Year 2006

Thanks to all the Sponsors & Thanks to all the Volunteers. Without you fellas, this New Year Run wouldn't have been a reality. Volunteers arrived as early as 5.20am and started setting up. I'm very happy to see the true spirit of runners helping runners. There were 5 carloads of material and food - a logistical nightmare. I was very touched to the point of tears.

Sorry for the delay of the starting time, because it still too dark inside the park. We have to take safety as a priority. By 6.45am the sky got brighter and it was time to finally kick the event off. YAB Tan Sri Rohaizad flagged off the run by counting down from 10 with everyone joining in, much like the countdown to the New Year! What a memorable flagoff!

Special thanks to
Runwitme for designing the running & finishers tag and missing his sessions with Mariah Carey/Madonna.
Ryan Teoh for laminating the bib & tag, and missing his studies.
Hoo Ching Cheong & Ching Tai for loaning us the big umbrellas n tables.
Kelvin Ng who use his natural voice help us to make all the announcements (before, during and after the run).
Penguin group for their strong support.
Ng Wei Loon (from The Starmetro) who came to support.
CS Wong who came for taking photos with his monster camera and burning the photos to CD-ROM.

We have tried our best and worked very hard for everything, thousand apologies if the event is not so well organized. Very sorry to those Veteran Category runners, for the delay of their results.

And I have to mention one mistake that i made which was the trophy label which was accidently printed as New Year Run 05 instead of 06, this is really a missing part that I didn't notice. I feel so sad n stupid. Whole night cannot sleep.

Very glad that the Pacemaker member grabbed the top honours for Open & Veteran Category. Jack Toh Pm14 was the PAR Run Champion, and again he is the Champion for the New Year Run. And don't forget our super veteran Vincent Wong Pm10, who won the veteran category with a super huge lead from the 1st runner up with a total time of 10 mins plus advantage. Congrats to both of you!

I organised the race & I also run the race. Do you know how tired it is? Worse than running 30K you know? Damn! Glad it's all over. I beat the best runner today, which i never beaten him before in my whole life. And he is Vincent Wong Pm10. With 1.3km to go, I saw Vincent struggling like mad. I over took him with 1km to go, and turbo with all my heart out and didn't dare look back. I finished the run with pride and honour - for Country, Pacemakers and Myself. Hahaha...

Congrats for successfully organising the New Year Run! Never mind the minor mistakes. Even the Olympic games also have some glitches. So cheer up! (,")

Appreciate if you able to send me some feedback in the comments session, whether good or bad. Will accept with open heart.

FYI, sad to say this. There will be no PAR Run anymore. PAR Run is only organise once in a life time. As for New Year Run, is depend on runners feedback. Thank You Very Much! & Happy New Year 006!!!
