Nudin and Crowther triumph at Action Asia Malaysia Trail Run

 

Nudin and Crowther triumph at Action Asia Malaysia Trail Run
More than 700 people conquer wet and humid conditions on hilly course in Janda Baik

JANDA BAIK, PAHANG, Tuesday, November 29, 2016 – Rain made for an extra challenge at last Sunday’s Action Asia Malaysia Trail Run – already with a reputation as the country’s toughest trail race – but failed to dampen the spirits of more than 700 people who took on the hilly course set in the lush tropical rainforest of Janda Baik in the state of Pahang. Mizuno Malaysia team runner Mohamad Affindi Bin Nudin and Mont Kiara Running Club’s Sharon Crowther eventually emerged men’s and women’s champions respectively of the 18 kilometre race that flagged off at 7am at Cherengin Hills Convention & Spa Resort.

Nudin blitzed the course in 1 hour 31 minutes and 5 seconds, a comfortable win ahead of fellow Malaysian Muhammad Asdi Weding (1:38:05) and Briton Mark Williams (1:41:15).

“The route was a little bit hilly, wet and challenging, but these elements were under my control,” said Nudin, who also won the inaugural Action Asia Malaysia in 2014. “The checkpoints, course markings and the course were perfect. Action Asia did a good job with organising the event.”

The fight for the women’s title was a closer affair. Sharon Crowther, a Briton based in Kuala Lumpur, won in 1:57:03, just a minute head of another fellow countrywoman Jenny Abbott (1:58:07). Local runner Norhani Mohd Jaffar was third (2:10:31).

Crowther said: “I felt tired and a bit sore just over hills, but I really happy to win. I love the race so much because it’s an absolutely fun, beautiful and great course. It’s nice to get a bit rain as well, which made the temperature so pleasant today. I would be back next year to defend my title, but I hear it is going to be a couple kilometres longer, which means I need to get some training in again.”

Situated less than an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, the 18km route featured 767 metres of total elevation gain and 769m of total elevation loss, with the highest point of the course at 516m and the lowest at 374m. There was also an easier 10km route for beginner and novice trail runners and hikers that included 532m total elevation gain and 409m total elevation loss. Overall men’s and women’s champions of both distances were rewarded with a pair of Hoka trail running shoes.

In the 10km race, Malaysian runners occupied top three places in both the men’s and women’s categories. Muhammad Ramzan Jani Mohd bagged a comfortable overall victory in 51:46. Muhammad Halif Husin was second (54:28) and Mohd Azizi Fazlin Mohd Noh third (55:28). In the women’s race, Bee Lian Seah was champion (1:02:27) ahead of Colleen Rosana Augustin (1:05:17) and Siti Aisah Mohd Shafee (1:07:55).

While most participants were local, some travelled from afar like Jocelyn Cheung, an experienced Hong Kong runner. She was third in the 18km in the women’s 16-29 age group. “I have done several trail races and I found today’s course to have a medium difficulty level. I felt relieved when I crossed the finish line because I found the 18km quite long, though the weather was very comfortable.”

The Action Asia Malaysia Trail Run is organised by Action Asia Events and the event could not happen without the valuable support of Hoka One One, OtterBox, Compressport, World of Sports, Cherengin Hills Convention & Spa Resort, Runner, Palm Cove Centre, Action X Store, Running Malaysia, Run & Explore, and Action Asia Foundation.

動感亞洲馬來西亞越野賽

AffindiSharon勇奪男女冠軍

 

【11月27日,吉隆坡】動感亞洲馬來西亞越野賽於今天第三度登陸馬來西亞珍德拜(Janda Baik)!作為馬來西亞有史以來難度係數最高的越野賽,比賽今晨七點於珍德拜的車仁珍山會議溫泉度假酒店 (Cherengin Hills Convention & Spa Resort) 正式開跑。一場激烈拼賽過後,Mizuno Malaysia隊的精英跑手 Mohamad Affindi Bin Nudin憑藉1小時31分5秒的優秀成績獲得了18公里組別的冠軍,而18公里女子組桂冠則被來自英國的 Sharon Crowther 奪得,她的成績是1小時57分3秒。 18公里和10公里的男女總冠軍圴可獲得Hoka One One越野鞋一雙。

來自馬來西亞Mizuno隊的跑手Mohamad Affindi Bin Nudin以1小時31分5秒的驚人成績率先衝過終點線。「這段路線有些陡峭和潮濕,所以比較有挑戰性,但是這些因素完全在我的掌控之中。路線中的檢查點、標記和場地都十分完美。我認為動感亞洲在組織整場活動中都做得非常棒!」這是這位獲勝者自2014年后再次奪得18公里男子組冠軍。

7分鐘之後,另一位馬來西亞跑手Muhammad Asdi Weding 奪得了18公里第二名。來自英國的F1跑手Mark Willianms以1小時41分15秒的成績取得第三名。

來自英國MKRC的跑手Sharon Crowther以1小時57分3秒的成績勇奪18公里女子組的冠軍之位。「我覺得很累,甚至在整個翻山過程中有酸痛的感覺,但我十分開心能贏得這場比賽。我真的很喜歡這場賽事,因為它不僅僅充滿趣味性,而且沿途滿都是靚麗的風景!」她說,「另外,馬來西亞是個十分可惹人喜愛的地方,尤其是今天比賽過程中的小雨,使得整個氣溫都十分舒適。如果明年有機會我一定會再來捍衛我冠軍之位,儘管我聽說明年賽程將會比今年要長幾公里,這也意味著我得進行更多的訓練以備戰。」

來自英國的精英跑手Jenny Abbott以1小時58分7秒的成績摘得女子組第二名。18公里女子組第三名則由馬來西亞跑手Norhani Mohd Jaffar 以2小時10分31秒奪得。

來自香港的越野好手Jocelyn Cheung,亦專程來大馬參加本次比賽。她接受採訪說:「我參加過這個比賽幾次了,今天的比賽難度屬於中等。我很享受第一部分的比賽過程,但在通過第二個路口后的上山部分十分具有挑戰性,但我完成整個比賽後覺得自己如釋重負,因為18公里還是頗長的。今天天氣很舒服,我很高興我成功挑戰了這個比賽。」

在10公里賽程的比賽中,優秀的馬來西亞選手們包攬男子和女子組前三的排名。Muhammad Ramzan Jani Mohd僅用51分46秒奪得了總冠軍,Muhammad Halif Husin 緊隨其後,以54分28秒的成績奪得第二,Mohd Azizi Fazlin Mohd Noh則以55分28秒的成績位列第三。

 

馬來西亞本地跑手Bee Lian Seah 以1小時2分27秒的成績率先登頂並摘得女子組10公里桂冠。僅2分50秒后,Ghike233隊的跑手Colleen Rosana Augustin奪得亞軍,而第三名則由Siti Aisah Mohd Shaffe以2小時7分55秒的成績取得。

相比之下,較輕鬆的10公里賽程為越野跑新手提供了多山丘和平地的區域讓跑手有機會完成532米爬升以及409米下降的賽程,本次賽道最高點為516米,最低點374米,有大約7.2公里泥道和2.8公里的水泥道。主辦方動感亞洲認為,熱愛遠足和身體健康的人都可以順利完成這項比賽。

為了最大限度地減少對自然路線的環境破壞,並在馬來西亞保持清潔的綠色環境,動感亞洲馬來西亞越野賽嚴格執行“無紙杯政策”。我們建議參賽者攜帶自己的水瓶或水袋,他們可以在比賽過程中的檢查點進行補給,但檢查點不會提供杯子。

 

動感亞洲馬來西亞越野賽由動感亞洲活動舉辦,並得到Hoka One One, OtterBox, Compressport, World of Sports, Cherengin Hills Convention & Spa Resort, Runner, Palm Cove Centre, Action X Store, Running Malaysia, Run & Explore, and Action Asia Foundation的大力支持。
