After a short introduction
Needless to say, the endless supply of fresh durians was the clear crowd-favourite. In between the eating, the guests mingled, chatted and posed for the cameras. Overall, it was a very pleasant & relaxing evening among a mixed bag of friendly runners. Special thank you to our gracious hosts, MYNIC & Running Project. We wish them great success for their first running collaboration under Larian on the 23rd of August 2015.
