Roasters Chicken Run '10 @ Sunway Lagoon

What? ROASTERS Chicken Run

Where? Sunway Lagoon

When? 23 May 2010 (7:30am)

Who? Organised by Kenny Rogers ROASTERS

Why? In aid of National Kidney Foundation

How far? 4.8km & 2.8km

Three thousand people gathered at Sunway Lagoon garbed in red T-shirts last Sunday. If this was in Thailand, security would have been pooping bricks already. Heheh!

Anyway, they were not the Thai Red Army. They were runners for the 6th Annual ROASTERS Chicken Run!

This year, the run has successfully raised RM60,000 for National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia – Dialysis Treatment for the young, a provider of dialysis treatment and a one stop centre for all matters involving the kidneys! (Insert applause here!)

Runners were seen balancing an egg on a cone while running the 4.8 route (adult & Junior category) and 2.8 km route (Kids Category) respectively surrounding area of Bandar Sunway.

EGG citing eh?

Dato Francis Lee (Executive Director f Berjaya Roasters (M) Sdn Bhd) – It always amazes me how generous Malaysian are in lending a helping hand to those in need. The numbers of participants had increased tremendously.

Roaster Chick? YB Hannah Yeoh (State Assemblyman of Subang Jaya)

“I am proud and honoured to be here and I would like to say thank you to Kenny Rogers ROASTERS for organising such a meaningful and charitable event that benefits many Malaysia", commented YB.

After a check (RM60,000) presentation to NKF and a warm up session by Celebrity Fitness, YB Hannah Yeoh and Dato Francis Lee flagged off the Chicken Run!

What we like about the Roasters Chicken Run?

The venue! The entry fee was inclusive of the entry for all parks in Sunway Lagoon. This spelled fun for the whole family and friends plus value for money on a Sunday!

Lucky draw was lucrative! Mobile phones and a massage chair worth close to RM10,000! Too bad by the time the grand draw was announced, most runners were already having a splashing time in Sunway Lagoon!

What can be improved in the next Roasters Chicken Run? These are my personal views. Comments are welcome.

1) Reporting. The number of reporting counters should be directly proportional to the amount of runners in that category. I saw only one counter for each category. While the people at the kiddies counters were swatting flies, it was chaotic at the Male A and Female B counters....The queue were long to tag and to get the eggs.

2) Family category should be introduced for parents and small children. One of my friend, Aiman had registered himself in Group A but he had to join his two small kids in the kids category. Lots of male runners had join the female flag off too! LOL! Maybe we need a couple category for them? Just kidding. But I think the family category should be considered.

Chicken backside....Hole for ventilation? LOL!

Hips don't lie. Eat healthily and keep those waistlines trim. :)

Muffin Eating competition.

Now it got me wondering..What happened to the eggs after the run? Did they make muffins with those eggs? Heheh!

Chomp! Chomp!
