Team Updates

Hi all! We have been really busy recently with races after races and events after events. Sorry for the lack of updates but rest assured that the team is still very much alive! September has been a super busy month for many of us and here is an update to quickly sum up some of the activities post Raya :

River Jungle Marathon 2013
The team was represented by Eugene Teoh at the run. The route was awesome and the organisation top class. No one else we know serves Durian at re-fuelling station. Check out Eugene's happy face!

Shape Run and Men's Health Run : 12KM Putrajaya
The team took part in this race co-sponsored by Skechers Malaysia. Annie scored a 6th Position for Women Open while the boys wrapped up the race with good finishing time. Yip managed a 13th placing while Ee-Van landed at 28th. Roy paced Jason and both finished the 12km within 1hour 20mins. The team then joined the Skechers team to mingle and help with some product knowledge/sharing.

TMBT 50km
The tough ultra-trail race known as The Most Beautiful Thing (TMBT) happened in Sabah and the participants not only have to battle tough trail but Mother Nature as well. The race was demanding mentally and physically but our resident Ultra-runner Roy finished it like a boss.  2ndSkin was the official garment supplier for TMBT. We are represented!

Singapore Crazee 160
50KM was a warm up race for Roy. While the raining condition in TMBT were the stone in his shoe, Singapore Crazee 160km Ultra run saw Roy having fun in the sun. 17hours and he wrapped it up to continue to be an inspiration for this stroke survivor.
