Conquered NPE Highway 10KM @ IJM Allianz Duo Challenge 2019 Malaysia

IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge launched on this year 2019 by joining more than 9,000 participants who took part in the very first leg of the New Pantai Expressway (NPE) Highway challenge. This highway opened for the participants running a distance of 10km and 21km on an early Sunway morning, 14 July 2019. The IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge 2019 also attracted the local and international marathoners who want to take part in the Besraya and NPE Highway Challenge. If you join the duo highway, then you will get two medals from the Duo Highway can combine together since they get the opportunity to run during the day and night run.

My friend and I reached the Sunway Pyramid, so beautiful view of lighting!

Last time, my friend, Woan Koon and I always stick to the 5km category since we are very busy with work and not practice in the training exercise so much. We still active in the marathon so we also improve our healthy body. Every time, we joined different marathon. Why? Because our legs don't feel pain anymore since our interest in running keep be still is alive! Now, we decided to join the 10km category of NPE Highway Challenge (Morning Run).

Many food trucks! If you are hungry, you can buy the breakfast from them before/ after run!

If you ask us about the limited of parking cars, don't worry this because they prepared many parking space slots. I also advise you all come very early morning to get your own parking slot so you can avoid the long queuing of cars and full parking cars. We walked out from the Pinnacle Sunway until we viewed a very beautiful lightning around Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall! There are few food & drink trucks along a road to the entrance of Sunway Pyamid. Cool!

After we started the flag off 10km, I am very surprised to see a very big highway for us to run so very free! We can run so straight or turn right or left as we like as we are on a big highway - really very quiet! No cars anywhere! Feel cool air when we are happy to view a beautiful sunset sky!

Happy to pass by this plaza toll PJS5..! This highway is very clean and quiet~

We are amazed with the participants who love to take photos on the Plaza Toll PJS5 and PJS2 so very much because they never stand in front of a toll, included us too. Haha. Normally the cars always go through the tolls non-stop so dangerous... With the IJM Allianz Duo highway event, I can see this NPE highway are very empty! We felt great and never worry about the cars. So it is safety for us, Deaf disability person who can run along this highway. You think us will pay a toll with touch-n-go card? No! We just go free thru this tolls! Hehe. We also faced the NIVEA challenge at the tolls, such as we passed their challenge, then get NIVEA stickers only, so easy.

Make turn-U to the plaza toll PJS2!
We joined the 21km runners to run along 21km & 10km route at same time! 
NPE Toll PJS2 said "Keep Running!"

By passing the toll booths on twice, we are excited to busy to take photos each other because this is our first time on a very big highway without the barriers!  We also fueled up with the water and 100plus drinks along 10km highway route. They do a very good job to take care of the major roads in Sunway city. Everything is good, make us felt comfort. I believe that this make everyone feel want again on next year!

Come! We almost reach the Sunway city..!

Once we finished our mission 10km, we never experience the jam queuing to get a medal at the finish line, compare to other marathon event so no problem. We enjoyed to receive the sandwich, water bottle, and drink 100 plus as we want more! When we are exploring around the boothes at the outside Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, I am lucky to get freebies from the NIVEA, TNG ewallet, Allianz, and others. Especially, a touch-n-go card which I happy to get. I learned that the TNG ewallet to help us to top up with their app only. No need go out to look for the 7-eleven or others.

Wow, many choices of sandwiches; tuna, chicken and egg!

I am very happy when my friend and I get the medals as a good reward of accomplishing my goal after we keep to encourage each other on everytime to complete 10km route along the NPE highway. And we have to motivate and inspire my Deaf friends to run a marathon so they will follow our lead and start running! Deaf Boleh! My friend, Woan Koon and I am very be thankful to EA Creative for this awesome inviation to welcome us to experience the running along the NPE Highway (E10) on first time.

Next time you should join the IJM Allianz Duo Highway again! For us, running a marathon can make you out of your comfort zone and accomplish something new, you grow stronger and become more confident, especially there are the disability people get to join this marathon before!

Looking forward to join the Besraya Highway, second-leg of the 26km, 13km run and 13km relay run challenge, first ever night run on 24 August 2019! If you missed both, it is okay. See you again at IJM Allianz Duo Challenge on next year! Keep your spirit of "NEVER GIVE UP"! Focus to achieve your goal of marathon on next year, ya!
