We Run KL 10k 2012 - Race day!

Congratulation to We Run KL runners! you're 1 step closer to the Nike We Run KL 10KM 15,000 runners running race in the heart of KL city centre on 13 Oct 2012. 

Was at The Curve... not collecting race bib but went to gym... 

I'm surprised with the speed the event organizer building the tent. On Thursday morning, there's already setup the tent.... but without the design... and Friday morning, race bib collection started. 
While the race bib collection held from Friday until Sunday evening, on Monday morning, it's gone. All dismantled ! 

Here's the map of starting line and parking as shown. Yay, tips from my reader on previous post were right. Starting point nearby Zouk, some where near Zouk but toward Renaissance Hotel. 
Anticipate 15,000 runners will be running  Nike We Run KL 2012, i did not believe on the parking sign shows on the photos above have the capacity for runners to park their cars! 

Words of advice: USES PUBLIC TRANSPORT ! You can explore the GO KL FREE BUSES ! 

Btw, do not trust this simple map. If you're driving, i bet you will be frustrate to the max and stuck in the jam. USES public transport to go starting point! 
The nearest Putra LRT station would be Dang Wangi. 
The nearest Monorail station would be Bukit Nanas.  
These two stations, it's might be giving some trouble to enter the "starting line pen" as you would need to walk to back and enter. Mind you, Jalan Ampang is 4 lanes wide road, the starting arch would occupied 3 lanes. 1 lane for what? for traffic for car to continue their journey or for runners to walk and enter to starting line area? I dont know... 

While, if you are not kiasu type, relax enjoying your Nike We Run KL, i would advise you to come out from Putra LRT KLCC station and walk toward starting line. You would be reaching at the back of starting line... no hurry.. relax and enjoy and no need sardine with other runners. 

Okay. This is only for getting at starting point. How about finishing point? FYI, the NIKE WE RUN KL finishing point have changed to Padang Merbok from Dataran Merdeka. No more Dataran Merdeka as finishing point. 

This is why i'm keep mentioning USES PUBLIC TRANSPORT to the starting line as finishing line are not the same venue where you started your run! 

If you have decided to park your car at KLCC area, cheapest and fastest option is via BUS in front of Little India. Board any buses that passby Little India, the buses are all toward Jalan Ampang with fare RM1.00 or RM1.20 i thinks, forget the extract fare, sorry. 

Thank you. End. 

All the best to Nike We Run KL runners endure the traffic to the starting point and finishing point.
