the xtra mile run

The Xtra Mile RunXtra Mile Run: 1 Man, 10 Suburbs, 100 km, 16 hours

As we speak now, a charity running event called The Xtra Mile Run had flagged off from the Palace of Justice, Putrajaya. The Xtra Mile Run is the brain child of a friend, Alex Au-Yong, himself an ultra-marathoner, who is determined to raise money for the StART Society, an academy dedicated to serving the underprivileged children in PJ. Alex, for this purpose have pledged 100 km, yes the whole of one-hundred-kilometers, in 16 hours, in the name of charity. Every 10 meters of it, is equivalent to RM10.

Alex’s running route will start in front of the Palace of Justice, Putrajaya, from there on zig-zagging all over Klang Valley, passing through the likes of Puchong, Sunway, Subang Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Damansara, Bandar Utama, TTDI, Hartamas, Bangsar before ending his run tomorrow at StART in Petaling Jaya, at around 10 am. He will be supported by his official pacers and other runners, so if you are located anywhere near the places mentioned above, you might be able to see Alex and his running crew. Wave and cheer for him if you see him yeah! WaveAs for myself, I will be running with the group from the Kelana Jaya LRT Station to 7-Eleven TTDI.

So show your support! You can do so by pledging some donation for Alex’s cause through the website (you can click the logo above). You can also ‘like’ the facebook site and follow @xtramileday on Twitter.
