Run 12km or 25km
Lately Straits Quay Penang has been the start/finish line of some memorable runs. Next year sees the Newton Challenge Penang there. Runners have two options; 12km or 25km. Those who sign up are entitled to a running vest and finisher medal open finishing the run. What's more they will also get a pair of Newton socks. What's more next year will see the introduction of 2 new categories called 3.5km Dash and 1km Dash. The 3.5km Dash caters to runners from 10 till 15 years, and they can run as buddies or 2 in a team; same gender or different genders. As for the 1km Dash, the family package from 2 to 4 participants, must have at least one child from as young as 4 till 9 years old. Yours truly has never participated in a Newton Challenge before. Just maybe come 8th February 2015, if there is no conflict in my running schedule, I will give this run a try. It sure looks like fun. Besides I am now familiar with the Straits Quay area having run there before during the Starlight Ultra, which was also organized by the My Triathlon Shop. The early bird registration rate is till applicable till 30th September 2014.
