|Kanthaa behind me in the Trail|
To encourage him to run more, i gave him my trusty Cascadia5. Afterall, sharing is caring. :)

A week later, the opportunity came to bring another colleague into the trail. He is an avid runner and has a strong fitness base. We were there primarily for the Walk To Save Bukit Kiara.
Suggested Route For First Timer In Kiara
After much running in Kiara, I've found the good combo of trail running that cover between 7 to 9km to be running through these route.
|Running up Twin Peak|
|Up Twin Peak. PC Pushing it.|
|Bumped into Puh Heng and wifey Keng Ping heading towards Mont' Kiara from Bukit Kiara|
You will then reach clearing with a few junctions. Take the second right turn and run down "Dirty Deeds" all the way to the gravel run and immediately turn right towards Snake n' Ladder.
|Bumped into Mark at Twin Peak and we ran together.|
The trail will meet back at the lower part of "Twin Peaks". Head down towards the tarmac and you will end up at the tarmac 4-junctions. Walk to the Pondok and head towards "2K". Take the left tail and run down "2K", fast. :D
2K loop will lead you to the "Triple Terrace" and you run down this part to reach "Apollo". The trail will then go up "Mission". Your heart-rate is estimated to be hitting the roof now.
|Obstacle - JUMP. Mark showing how it is done.|
|Feeling the burn|
If you do not know where to run in Kiara, download this trail map done by Pat and Joe Adnan, the trail names are all inside and you can co-relate it to my blog entry here.
Otherwise, I will try to run trail once a week - and if the timing and opportunity is right, you are more than welcome to join me. Only catch is the timing could be a bit last minute, as I would have to work around my schedule with wifey.
