Malakoff 2008

Nope, I won’t be participating.

In April 2006 I entered the Malakoff Duathlon where I took the biking leg for the team relay.  There were supposed to be three parts to the race, but I found out I was pregnant the following month and that was the end of my rather short-lived biking career.

Despite not having participated since, my name remains on the duathlon mailing list and this was what I received about this year’s Malakoff Duathlon activities (for those who might be interested to participate):

MALAKOFF University Duathlon Series
Run – Bike – Run (Sprint Distances)

This was created to encourage more young and new athletes to start multi-sport and stay healthy. The distances are DU-able for most people and we even have the Team Relay category for those who are currently single-sport athletes but would like to be part of a multi-sport event. This is your chance to make new friends and also try a new sport. The event is powered by MALAKOFF and fueled by PowerBar. For more information about this event, please log on to http://www.duathlonseries.com.my or drop us a line.

MALAKOFF 26km, Penang 2008
Run

If you are looking for a new venue to run in, come race the inaugural MALAKOFF 26km, Penang 2008.

Penang is the Pearl of the Orient and for many good reasons:

  • Great run course with some hills at the beginning, a coastal section along Gurney Drive and historical tour of the city under shady bits towards to end
  • Great hawker fare everywhere
  • Take your family or friends for a holiday run

We are organizing hotels and buses from Kuala Lumpur to Penang return so if you are interested we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment. The event is powered by MALAKOFF, organized by Pacesetters, Athletic Club Malaysia, co-sponsored by PowerBar and CounterPain.
