🌲P.S.P King of Forest 2017 Run – Preview by Happy Runner
I’m looking forward to hitting the trail again with a NEW FOREST TRAIL in Bukit Kerinchi. More specifically, the race venue Pantai Sentral Park (PSP) is part of a new commercial development by IJM Land who is also the Official Partner & Title Sponsor. IJM Group and IJM Land is a major sponsor of some of the best local running and cycling events. Going by their impressive track record, we can expect here another memorable event for the running community.
There’s nothing like a well-carved trail run to test runners’ agility, balance and speed as the runners bob along an undulating and natural terrain. Avoiding stumbling, tripping and falling is always my major concern in any trail run. At the same time, if I am not sensing danger with every step, then I am not pushing myself hard enough. So, in the wild trails, the line between a graceful run and a comical fall is very fine indeed. All it takes is one wrong step or one hidden tree root to stop me in my tracks in a spectacular fashion. It’s facing the untamed wilderness which gives me an ADRENALIN RUSH and makes trail running ultimately exhilarating.
Fortunately, Pantai Sentral Park is within a stone’s throw from Kuala Lumpur, and it is easily accessible via NPE Highway. Our city landscape is continuously changing, and there are not many green sites nearby like this left for us to escape to. Therefore, I hope that with the support of thoughtful runners, nature-lovers, the Local Authorities and responsible Developers, the natural beauty of Bukit Kerinchi will be preserved for future generations to experience the wonders of trail running in KL as well.
