Tajuk : Bukan Meroyan tapi Nak Kongsi Cerita.
Buat teman2 yg msg kata 'Wah! Ko sekarang tak pandang event2 running kat Msia dah, dah over the sea je'
Haaaa.. ni nak cerita sikit. my oversea running event has been for Bromo Marathon only.. since 2014.. now baru nak survey2 venue lain for 2018.
2014 - 1st time participated in 10K 🏅 and I fell in love with Bromo 😍
2015 - Registered for 10K but DNS - had to work.. hangus RM600 flight + race fee 😭
2016 - Registered for HM but DNS - had to work.. hangus RM700 flight + race fee 😭
2017 - Ran HM 🏅🏃🏻♀️💨.. I'm a happy bunny!
Then, ada pulak yang kata "Banyak duit boleh la nak run Bromo" 😒.. Haaa part ni I nak berleter marah sikit.. Korang tau tak the race fee is actually amat lah murah dari event2 kat Malaysia ni? Just pay a little extra for the experience, the view and meeting new friends from all over the world.
I've spent less than RM1K for ALL which includes return flight, accom, transport and food.. and shopping sikit.
It's all about PLANNING.. and yes.. there's always 50/50 risk of DNS due to unforeseen circumstances. Sama ada kau sanggup nak burn the money atau tidak.. kira sedekah je lah 🙈🙉🙊
1) Register for early bird fee memang lah berbaloi.
2017 - Earlybird fee of IDR350K = RM110 je for HM ok.
2016 - IDR500K = RM150 sbb late register.. my bad!
2015 - USD25 race fee + USD5 for donation to the community of Bromo.. and that's abt RM120
Diff organizer diff rate / package etc.. tapi early bird fee mmg murah.. kalau cancel trip pon tak rasa ralat sangat.
2) Get promo flight tix.. as low as RM60 via AA one way.. depends on your luck lah kan.
3) Go in group and share the car rental or use the shuttle from airport provided by the organizer (abt IDR150k = RM50 one way)
FYI, our trip is always a fast one.. 3D2N.. Friday night travel - Saturday collect racekit - Sunday morning run and same day balik KL.. Run And Go gitu.
So, lepas ni.. tak payah la nak msg I kata itu ini.. kalau rasa nak komen negatif perli2, pergi jauh2.. tapi kalau rasa nak follow next year, sila pm tepi.
Notakaki : TQ baca cerpen merintih.
