Towerthon Comments


Anyone hv any comments on d towerthon, pls email to Nezz @ nezz1010@yahoo.com She is collecting all to send it to d organizer, they wanna do postmortem. U may write anything u want lah.

Here are my comments:
1) Provided rubbish bins at drink station, so that the runners won't simply throw bottles everywhere. It's also for the safety of other runners.

2) Towethon is a International event, how can they give plastic medals for runners? Jatuh maruah saja.

3) Runners won't calculate the number of steps to the top. What's more helpful are how many floors to the finish. So the markers should countdown the number of floors instead of steps.

4) 1km is still too short. It should be extended further so that there are enough space built-up for the runners.

5) Provide more toilets

6) Good instruction & traffic control on parking.

Registration needs to be systematic. It happened that on the first batch (0001-0170) of male runners, there was one Indian officer who went around marking attendance at the start point afew minutes before blast off. He was very rude and abusive to the runners when some of them crowded around him to check the attendance. His shouted (verbatim): "Don’t tell me what to do. I have been organizing runs for umpteenth years."

Come one, if he has been organizing runs for umpteenth years, he shouldn’t be going around marking people attendance. TNS!!!

One more comments, perhaps in the future Towerthons, timing chip (Championchip) should be used for faster and accurate results. I went to Vertical Marathon Singapore last year, I got my certificate printed with my name and timing when I got down to from the building. Now that is efficient!

Runwitme,

Yupe I heard dat too! His name is Mr.Balan, upon checking to his list book. So shock my name wasnt tick on it, but I oredi surrender my reporting card at der booth station.

So I speechless lor!! :(

It is always the "Malaysian Boleh" attitude of the local so call "official" who are lack of profesionalism and expertise and it is very sickeening to hear that they have been doing these jobs for many years but never learn from past mistake and never improved. Wakeup lah you "local" official.Send this comment to the organiser.

I was at the run for the first time and i felt uncomfortable with the officials there. They seem to have this 'I'm-in-charge-here' kind of attitude. Overall atmosphere feels rather intimidating. Saw an official gave a runner a fierce stare for accidentally spilling water from the bottle on the table.
And what's with the BUFFET? We came here to RUN and not witness some big shots having free meals in full public view. It's a sport event for goodness sake!
Overall, the enjoyment was not there like other major runs. Goodie packs are pretty decent though, except maybe the medal. Did the winners get plastic ones too?

Dear all whiney whimps

Please laaar ask you to join a race you guys are like staying in 5 star hotel, demanding this wanting that with just a measle registration fee.......

Point to Point

1)Rubbish Bin, for gods sake, since when you see malaysians throw rubbish into a bin whenever it 's provided, always throw on the "please do not litter here" signpost laa....., as if ppl all stand and drink beside and bin then finish the throw izzit.....

2)plastic medal, I think only give you a pure gold medal with 99karat diamond on it still you will blablablabl like hell.....some bigger more prestigious events don't even give medal laaaaaaar give you apple and orange juice got laaar....... apasal mengenal dengan marauh tu!!

3)When you run marathon you know it is 42 km wot where got dunno the distance then go and run one....so floor numbers already indicated clearly liao maaaaaaah. Give number of floors or steps also the same laaar, Malaysia measurement system all fuked up one laaar altho it is indicated.

4)1km too short, hellooooo read carefully laar this is towerton, you yourself not good in climbing stairs wanna use that 1km (or longer distance in your dream) to potong sayur say so laaar, no need to say need more space to build up wot!!! Might as well make it run 10km only then climb even better hooooooooor...........D'oh!!!!

5)Toilets...just face the facts, everyone always wanna pee together, and whenever it is, there's always a queue there, if you don't wanna pee, then don't eat so much or pang all your sai finish first then only come.....

6) No comment.

grr..I have been runing for years.And for once,i decided to participate in a race.
I am a indian expat student.

-1st of all I was CHEATED.
charged 20usd? 75 ringgit.Where as local guy paid 20ringgit.
Why the discrimination?Common towerthon organisers, we are going towards a free world ,free of discrimination.
After registering,I realised I could have paid rm 20 and got away with it.

-I slipped on the stairs.Some runner' thought he was being Mr.cool by spilling water on the stair.I stepped and slipped and regained on to my feet.It hurted though.
the organiser's preffered to slack away and allow ppl carry the water up the stairs.

-There was this fat malay man sitting at the registration counter.He didn't seem friendly at all.ask him where is the luggage department,he grumbles' off roughly in malay. Asked somebody else then.
-Those luggage ppl placed our bags on the on the dirty road at the end of the race.My bag was placed on the mud.

- Some runner's drink water from the bottle,make mouth contact, and put the bottle back on the table.Now ,I am sure,some other runner might accidentally pick that half filled bottle of water. If the runner who drank water first, had soem disease/infection,what are you going to do?The disease will spread.

-And the biggest complaint by everyone was,that medal was plastic.It' doesn't even mention the word finisher.

-The certificate was un-personalised.

-As I reached the top,I badly wanted to sit somewhere.Some man yelled off,'tada tada' when I wanted to sit on some cushion chair nearby.went of to the observation deck.

-And any-one can go and get a goodie bag.
-And those indian' men at the start off just can't be described.Many ridiculous comments,trying to act like the big macho/boss over there.

-The medal presentation was kept at distant.And the photo graphers all stop on the chairs blocking the view when yu fang and the kenyan runner were being given a prize.

-Should provide some shower facility.
-And many other stuff.
Common,this is a international run,ppl from around the world are comming.Have some standard.

The plastic medal thing was the worst.MANY PPL WERE DISAPPOINTED AT THE LOOK OF THE MEDAL.
-I have also planned to complain.Can give me the adres whom to complain?
mail at el_na8@hotmail.com if u want mor comments.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It gets down to select a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
