Run 1736 - 19th June 2010

Venue: Peretak (after Kuala Kubu Baru dam) - New Running Area!
Hare: Shirley Tan
Co-Hares: Hares from HC2010 3rd Sector
Scribe: Mary Morss

It's slightly further than usual, but should be worth it for a brand-new running area!

The run-site is a good picnic area, so consider coming early with your kids and having a relaxing lunch before the run. But take care of kids near the river - it's bigger than the usual streams we see.
