Bhp Orange Run 2009

“BE prepared. Have fun, and run!”

So urged Pacesetters Athletic Club Malaysia president Rustam Affandi Zaihan to those taking part
in the annual Orange Run quarter marathon.

As a club that promotes running, Rustam sees the Orange Run as a great event for members of the

Around 500 out of 1,800 members of Pacesetters are set to join the run.

“The Orange Run is definitely one of those look-forward events in the Pacesetters’ calendar. It’s a
good event for the community to join,” he said.

“It’s also an opportunity for those busy bees to start bonding with their loved ones, or just join
for the love of running.”

He said one should view the run more as a friendly outing rather than a competition. “The event’s
purpose is to promote healthy living.

We want participants to enjoy living the healthy life.

“When you start exercising, it makes you feel good about yourself. It’s for your own pleasure to
stay healthy.”

Rustam also advised runners to prepare themselves well.

“You need to be physically ready. You have to build up your stamina.

“For those who have never trained before, I’d suggest they walk briskly before moving on to jogging as this will help to build stamina. Runners have to be disciplined, they should never force hemselves,” said Rustam, who jogs every morning.

The Orange Run will be held at The Curve Mutiara Damansara’s piazza on April 12. This fourth edition of the quarter-marathon is organised by Boustead Petroleum Sdn Bhd.
