On May 30 2015, 23 of our members gathered in Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur for our first members’ day.
The day started early when we all met at 6:30am at the Sri Hartamas Petronas station. After a short introduction and mingling time, our members guided by MURA committee members went for a trail run in Bukit Kiara. The run took between 60 to 90 minutes and brought us into the Kiara trails. Everyone enjoyed the great surrounding Kiara has to offer while our MURA sweepers ensured no one was left behind and removed all markers from the trail while also collecting all the rubbish, plastic bottles left by other users of the hill that they could find.
After the run, we gathered at the Sri Hartamas playground, just further up from Petronas to have breakfast together. Everyone enjoyed it and multiple discussions spawned allowing our members to get to know each other better. Our president, Seow Kong gave a short introduction about MURA objectives and what had been done in the last 12 months since the inception of the association. Our members received their MURA T-Shirt and membership card.
Following this, we had a discussion and Q&A about what MURA could be doing for its members and for the local ultra running community. Some great suggestions were given by members and the committee will look into these during the coming months. At around 10:30am, MURA’s first member day was concluded.
Other members’ days will be organized in the North and South of Malaysia for our members who are not staying around Kuala Lumpur. The photos of the members’ day are available on the FB album at this URL.
