Boi Boi Ger Ger Run 2014

Finally the day of the Boi Boi Ger Ger Run. As expected, the response wasn't that great. Our target was 10 teams of 4, after registration we got 8 teams but on the morning, a number didn't turn up and we only managed to have 5 teams. Still, the show must go on and I think, it went very well.

Here are some photos of the event courtesy of Marcus Lim of Running Shorts

The winning team!

Trail Running Singapore sponsored 4 TRS tees for the lucky draw

And of course the mandatory group photo

At the end, I think despite the small numbers, most enjoy themselves. Post event, there were some lessons learnt like giving more time to create more buzz and not labelling it as a "SDU" type event. That latter probably scare off a lot of potential participants.

In any case, this event would not have been a success if not for the support of the various running friends, Sotong, who was the MC for the day and who also sponsored the 2nd prize and some of the items for the food; Terence, who assisted with the technical part of the registration and organisation; Brokie and the sidekick for helping with the organisation and getting the food and drinks; Tiwazz and Charlotte for their cash sponsorship; Kelly for the sponsorship of the lucky draw prizes and also helping with the planning and organisation and last but not least, Marcus of Running Shots for coming down to take photos.

Will there be another Boi Boi Ger Ger run? That will depends ....
