RIP Cheah Meei Meei

I still remember the first time I met you. You are a great hill climber, always a podium winner and a very humble lady. At the starting line you always told me anything can happen and ask me to try by best. 


Race after race we compete and I’m always very happy to chit chat with you before and after the finishing line.  You are someone I look up to. I will always remember the last tips that you give me on how to go downhill.  I hope I can practice it. 

I last hear your voice on Monday when you told me you are feeling better  from food poisoning but it was shocking news to hear  that you have departed today.

Rest in Peace, Cheah Meei Meei

Perhentian Island Challenge 2012 , Gender Discrimination spotted

Photo Courtesy of Tey Eng Tiong and Mr crazytomatoman.blogspot.com/ 

Overall feed back

Pros :I love perhentian challenge 2012 trail. The trail was super well marked and I love the variety of trail. You have muddy section, very steep hill to climb , very technical down hill etc . Well done to the team that marked the trail with papers. I will come back again for the trail.
I would also love to thank the volunteers that sacrifice their weekend to provide us water , food and undefined number of times the organizer ask you to give away the food voucher to participant everyday.
Cons: However there are a lot of post Mortem need to be conducted especially on the time management and the way organizer cancel and combine category stated in the registration form. Perhaps organizer need to inform participant about the cancellation of the category in advance (at least a week) , NOT during the briefing or finishing line. IF they do not agreed with the cancellation, you should refund the entry fees to them in advance. 
Gender discrimination for prizes were spotted. Apparently a First Novice Local Girl cried at the finishing line when she was told they combined the category and prizes.

After 8 hours bus ride, I finally reached Kuala Besut 

 
Is a blessing in disguise they made us wear this vest to race , else i have to send my tri top to professional to remove the mud. :D
 Nasi lauk with Tey Eng Tiong at Kuala Besut .

 Arrived at Perhentian Island around 10.15 a.m


A bit fussy with the tent provided , I decided to book a Standard Room Fan at D Ayumni House
http://d-ayumnihouse.blogspot.com/

Altering my running vest at D Ayumni , Ms Lee is very helpful to provide me the tools needed

Race Day.. jeng jeng.. All the tulan(angry) face when race director announce the race will be delayed
Waiting for VIP for an hour

 
Trail is super well marked with this paper

We swim and run

 Oppa tomato style

Welcome drink and kiss.. :D

Finisher Medal, BTW the race is a day race only, NOT 12-14 Oct

The Gals did it. Prizes reduced to Top 3 as there are not enough participants BUT

 Elite Men and Elite Women prizes are different by 1K
Sad to say:
We pay the same entry fees and run the same distance

"Due to high demand. We are now open a new category for international section which is International Novice Men and Novice Women."

Another discrimination spotted, Top 4 prizes for local men but NO Top 4 prizes for local women

One last discrimination spotted, EXTRA 3k given to only ONE fastest runner .. IT is quite Obvious which gender will win. My question is HOW can a woman compete with a man in terms of SPEED and STRENGTH ?

Gender Equality in Sports



The value placed on women’s sport is often lower, resulting in inadequate resources and unequal wages and prizes.

I always feel unhappy whenever I found out there is unequal prizes for women or veteran category. Whether there is lesser women participation, organizer should not reduce the prize money. We women work as hard as men and run the same distance as the men’s  category .

Take for example SAS Eco Challenge ( Pulau Tioman).
Both Female and male pay the same entry fees; run the same route and distance. But the prize money :


Then came a charity race yesterday
Obviously I did not expect to receive any prizes from charity run BUT if you intend to give, you need to give it fair and square for both gender regardless of age. No excuses of not enough budget or limited prizes. If prizes are limited, it is best to put it in Lucky Draw or divide it equally.

Male winners for 1st , 2nd and 3rd in (Mixed and Open category) received cash voucher from The club. The women and Veteran received nothing. 

Dear Michelle,

I've communicated with Ms. XX XXX from The EdXX and she informed that the prizes were sponsored by companies.

Since the prizes were limited, the organiser selected only a few categories for winning runners.

There's no intention to discriminate anyone with the prizes.

By the way, congratulation to all the winners! :)

Thank you

Best Regards,
XXXXXXXX
