RM35,000 up for grabs
A CASH purse of RM35,000 is up for grabs at the National Open relay in Temerloh on Aug 30.
The 10km relay will start at the Mentakab Town Hall and end at Dataran Temerloh. Each member of the team will run 2km.
The relay, organised by the Termeloh District Athletics Association, has seven categories — men’s open, men’s under-20, women’s under-20, boys’ under-12, girls under-12, men’s veteran and Pahang government staff.
Organising secretary Moha-med Musa Noor Mohamed said they were expecting about 700 teams.
“Several foreign teams have also indicated their interest to join the relay. If we can get 700 teams, then it will be endorsed by the Malaysia Book of Records,’’ he said.
The top 10 finishers in each category will receive cash prizes. The organisers are also giving away four laptops — two each to secondary and primary schools — to the schools with the highest number of participants. For more information, contact 09-278 1572.
