KL Rat Race 2009 – Part 1

The Edge™– Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Rat Race® is an annual event for charity which began in 2000. Modelled after the Carey Wall Street Rat Race, the Kuala Lumpur Rat Race® is a platform for Corporate Malaysia to come together to help the needy in a novel way. The Race is the one day in the year that top executives and office workers forget about the rat race they run in daily, and join a rat race of a different kind. It also gives these workers a good excuse to leave the office early after a hard day’s work.

The Race covers 4.5km through the commercial heart of Kuala Lumpur, starting and finishing at the grounds of Bursa Malaysia. Participants run in their office attire… (Info from KL Rat Race Official Website)

I was there in Bursa Malaysia rooting for my team. It is the first year participation for Ranhill Utilities and we were there to experience the fun charity race. In this 1st part i’ll be sharing some of the race photos while the second part will focus on the *cheerleaders* 😛
