For those planning to go for this run, it is advised to book hotel earlier because on the same weekend, there will be the annual St. Anne festival in Penang. So, hotel rooms are going fast. I recommend Vistana Hotel (Bukit Jambul) as it is quite near the start point compared to other hotels in the city centre. It is also near a Bukit Jambul shopping mall where you can contribute to Penang economy. Heheh!

p/s. St. Anne Feast is a 9 days prayer ritual that draws a congregation of its followers. In conjunction with the annual St.Anne's feast which Night of Candle Light Procession usually takes place at the Church grounds. I was there a few years ago. Quite a happening event but do be careful of candles...they have been known to set people hair on fire....Ouch!!!
