The runsite is very open - bring your own shade/umbrella if you wish to keep your alabaster complexion. Run will be under the shade of jungle trees most of the time so you can ditch your umbrella for the run ; although it can be useful against tigers and horny Dutchmen ! There will be 2 runs - a normal run and a longer one. Part of the run may use shredded paper to avoid site workers or residents picking it up. DO NOT STEAL DURIANS !

On On

at Tiam Fatt in Melawati
- take jln Melawati 6 from the runsite all the way to main crossroad at end of jln Melawati 6 (about 1.2km). Turn left and turn right after 200m (in fact crossing the road).
- Turn immediately left again in what looks like a parking lot. Keep on driving following the curve to the right for another 200meters. Turn right in jln Bandar 2 and park at end. Tiam Fatt is at the end or the parking to the left. (you can also drive 100m more and enter from the next lane, jln Bandar 1, but parking there is usually busier, Tiam Fatt at end of parking to the right).
