Live Great Run Is Back!

Zaini and I (and a friend) were lucky enough to be invited to a dinner on June 25th, at Intercontinenal Hotel by Great Eastern team, in appreciation of the support given towards the Live Great Run last year and to kick start Live Great Run 2013.
 
Mingling around before the start of the event. I was completely awestruck being in the same room as these veterans (running and blogging wise, not age. ehem). I am so not worthy...

Chatter, chatter, laugh laugh, posed for photos and stuff.
Listening attentively to the emcee, Ms Wong Fong Yee; the Assistant Manager of Brand and Communications.  Fong Yee is an avid runner herself, and has run four full marathons! RESPECT!
Followed by a welcome address by Ms GG Kam, the VP & Head of Marketing & Customer Management.

Then, we were shown some slides, higlighting key points of the race:
 
 
 
 
 
The Live Great Run is interesting compared to other road races as it has hurdles along the 12km route that test runners' endurance. JUMP runners JUMP!

For 3km runners, runners are required to team up with loved ones and don an oversized double t-shirt for the run! Fun wor. But don't quarrel with each other while running, OK! LOL
The Run also hold an interesting contest through Twitter and Instagram. My Twitter and Instagram addict friends, what are you waiting for? *wink wink*
There are other prizes offered too for those running in the 3km category. Time to show off your dance moves? Or running with your grand dad, maybe? Or dust off that funky headgear you had stashed away in your cupboard? xD

errr... organiser. How about us crazy ones with headgears running in the 12km category? No chance ah? :P

We were then treated to a scrumptious buffet dinner. The food was GOOD and aplenty! Great Eastern team is sure generous.

Oh yeah, Ms GG Kam assured us that there will be taufoofah waiting for runners after their run, just like last year. So, no worries yeah. Taufoofah will be waiting for you! (I looooooove taufoofah) 
Om nom nom

A group photo before the dinner ended.
For us who attended the dinner, we received one AWESOME goodie bag.
and we were also genereously given a free race entry to the Live Great Run 2013. Soooooo cool! Thank you. ^^

Have you guys registered for the race? If you haven't, hurry! Early bird fees ends on June 30th and slots are running out fast! More details of the race here. You can register for the race here.

So, what are you waiting for? Chop chop.

      From what I gather from last year's race report, the 2012 race was awesome in terms of organisation, refreshments and goodies.

  16. I had to Google taufoofah. Oh! It's that white stuff that you always get at the end of a Chinese meal (here in Tokyo anyway). I had no idea what it was called, but I always steal The Hero's. :D

    PS: I'll run (OK walk) a marathon just for the chance to dig into that buffet!
