The Weekend Runner: Men’s Health Women’s Health (MHWH) Night Run

When it comes to running I am more of a morning person than a night person, because I think I perform better when I am still fresh out of bed. However, I could not pass up the opportunity to join a night run. So last Saturday I was in Putrajaya for the Men’s Health Women’s Health (MHWH) Night Run for the 12 km category.

I did not prepare much, as I was still sore from last week’s Viper Challenge. Earlier in the week I did 30 minutes of brisk walking, then a few light 5 km runs. On the day of the race I took a power nap for 15-30 minutes, and a heavy lunch 4 hours prior to flag-off time.

It was drizzling slightly but a little bit of rain did not hamper our spirits. Overall, the race went smoothly. The flag-off venue was right across the Tunku Mizan Mosque, so after prayers there was no need to rush to get to the starting line. Plenty of parking space too, as long you get to the venue at least 1 hour before starting time. Running in Putrajaya was a breeze, as the road is smooth and there is minimal elevation. I completed the race in 90 minutes, which is my personal best so far.


Finisher medal close up. Love the colours!



Plenty of freebies too! Check out the 1 month deodorant, soap, and lotion supply!


I had a great time, and this event might just be a yearly thing for me if they decide to do it again next year.


Until next week,

The Weekend Runner,
