Sometimes, once in a awhile, it's nice to be on the other side of a running event. Not as a runner but as part of the event's crew/volunteer.
Hubby and I had done quite a fair bit of volunteering at races this year; from fun runs to ultra runs and PokeHunt Run is the final one for us in 2016. We already have another race we'll be volunteering at, in January. ^^
It was just a simple run. A fun run so everyone who participated were out to have fun and they were a really nice bunch of participants.
We had volunteered a few times for events held by Bubbly Media which is the organiser of PokeHunt Run and it's always a good experience.
The run was held at Metropolitan Park, Kepong on Dec 18th, 2016. The run started at 7.45am but of course we reported to duty much earlier, at 6.30am.
Participants were given a water gun to hunt down "pokemon" during the run.
Turned out that the Pokemons they are hunting and shooting were fellow participants!
Most had a blast shooting around. Kids and adults alike were happily shooting (with coloured water) and getting all wet! Even us crews were not spared from getting shot! LOL
We packed up after checking to see whether all participants had gone through our station and returned to the Start/Finish line.
Quite a number of participants were still around and playing water. And not only the kids, ya!
Really nice to see lah families happily enjoying the day out at PokeHunt Run (although no actual Pokemon were to be seen).
