Raleigh Round Island Challenge 2014

Blog entry edited to correct my initial misinterpretation of the race entry fee to be RM350/team member, not RM350/team. Apologies for the wrong info.
Last year, i helped the good people in Raleigh International to highlight their inaugural race in Perhentian. This year, I am doing the same as I believe their reason and cause is a good one. Adventure racing at Perhentian island that include lodging and logistic at RM350/ RM1400/team of 4? That is not a bargain, it is almost FOC if you ask me. Read more about it here. Sign up soon if you are interested!

Date9-11th May 2014
Requirements: 4 team members to swim a relay of 15km to be completed in 10 hours around Perhentian Island (There should always be 2 members kayaking and another two swimming at all times during the race,switching roles is allowed at alternative checkpoints.) Knowing how to swim is a must.
Fees: RM 350 per team member (Includes 3D2N stay on island, return transport from KL-Perhentian, insurance coverage, Marine Park fees, food, medal, and event t-shirt). This made the fee per team to be RM1400.00

Below is a little background on Raleigh Kuala Lumpur:

"Raleigh Kuala Lumpur is a non-profit organization which supports the process of Malaysian venturers and staff participating in local and overseas expeditions organized by Raleigh International. They carry out various adventure, community and environmental projects locally. Following 2013's event success, this year we are aiming at challenging all our swimmers to push themselves way over their physical and mental limit with the grueling distance of 15km out in the open sea."
