Run 821 Jul 8 is in Pantai Hillpark


RLC Harriers Run 821
Hares : Bob Yong & Jennifer Chong
Runsite : Pantai Hillpark, Bangsar Selatan
Weather : Fine & dry

The run started off behind the chain-link fencing and it led to an
excruciatingly painful trip along the slope of the hill. Progress was
slow as balance had to be maintained on the uneven ground. First, we
meandered down and then up and there the first check awaited to be
broken by Lim Boon Hiong. 

The trail went downwards and then up to the suspension bridge when the
trail led to a main road. Another check beckoned, sending the front
runners to the Gasing playgound ... alas in vain. A cry of "On! On!"
was heard from the back and hashers went back again into the verdant
forest of Bukit Gasing.

There, at a crucial junction was Tan See Meng, fresh from his starring
role as the best butler at the Melaka Quad trip, pressing his horn and
guiding runners. Soon, we were at the so-called haunted house ... and
so the run continued through the Gasing hills.

FROP was again Mike Kuan at 68 minutes, followed by Lilian Wee, CCGoh
and Playboy Choo. However, some late-comers like Peter Leong, Lee
Buchan and Veloo completed the trail in a shorter time, but with no
checks. The last runner in was a guest, Tiffany and her host Stiffany
aka Dato Steven Oon. Their time was about 30 minutes after the FROP.

Once again, the hired hares in the form of Tarzan and Chin F.K. had
laid a superb trail with many checks to slow down the front runners
and allow the walkers and stragglers to catch up. Even though the
actual length of the run was some 5.0 km, it seemed longer and more
challenging.

After the usual hilarious Circle, we made our way to Hoi Kee in Taman
Desa, off Old Klang Road. For the superb meal, the hares paid RM800
for the five tables of food served in air-con comfort. Tim Moey and
Tina Lau had to fork out RM840 for the chicken rice buffet at the
Club's Gazebo the previous week.
