Mizuno Wave Run in its 10th edition returns September 27, 2015 – Free slot up for grabs
I remember the Mizuno Wave Run on January 15, 2012 very well. The location fantastic with the 10km route leading through the vast land of UPM. Hilly, very hilly with a monster hill only few meters before the finish line within the UPM stadium. That was my 6th race ever and after 2 HM and 3 FM my first 10km run. Happy to have made it sub 50 minutes in 47min:43sec at that time. It was there when I talked to Moey for the first time and heard about some strong Orang Putih runners called Jean Pierre and Mark.
One year later I ran the 16km at the Mizuno Wave Run in Putrajaya on June 09, 2013. I was impressed that the race organizer found a relatively flat route in normally hilly Putrajaya, really liked the route.
I was registered for the Mizuno Wave Run 10km on August 24, 2014 but DNS (Did Not Start) due to work and my poor fitness at that time.
Good news, the Mizuno Wave Run is back in its 10th edition and will take place in Putrajaya on September 27, 2015. The event offers the popular 10km and HM distances.
