The first ever Charity and Colour Run 2017 by UNiKL RCMP was held at the campus located at Greentown Ipoh on May 14 and was attended not only by the students but also by members of the public who love running.
The flag-off started at 7.30am starting from the campus itself then heading to Polo Ground. From there, runners continued their journey passing through Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab to get to the finishing line back at the campus, a total of 6.6km.
While the first 30 finishers got an exclusive medal, many were left disappointed and wished the organisers gave out more medals.
“I ran as fast I could. Instead of giving it for the first 30 finishers, perhaps in the next run, they could do it in categories. For example the first 30 male runners and the first 30 female runners would get medals. I reached the finishing line in less than 40 minutes but luck wasn’t mine. I feel like a sore loser,” said Huda Zambry who went on the run with her friends.
Although she didn’t win any medals, Huda admitted that the event was indeed a fun run and wished it could be done again next year. Aside from the main event, runners were also invited to join the post-run Zumba and lucky draw sessions held by UNiKL students. Photo credit goes to Afham Suhaimi (013 595 3285).
