BDB Climb & Run Langkawi

Hello, runner! Are you ready to challenge yourself to something different? BDB Climb & Run Langkawi will be held on 4th June 2016 and I was honoured to be invited to the route preview along with a few other bloggers/runners.

We were flew to Langkawi via Fireflyz one day earlier and was brought to the race flag off location at Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan for a briefing by the Race Director, Ariff.

BDB Triple Challenge 2016 is organized by Bina Darulaman Berhad consist of 3 races. First up is BDB Climb & Run Langkawi which will be held on 4th June 2016, follow by Extreme Jitra on 10th September 2016 and last but not least Marathon Jitra on 25th November 2016


For the BDB Climb & Run, we are challenged to climb 4287 concrete stairs (3.1km) to reach the peak of Gunung Raya and run downhill 15km. Oh my... this is challenging. Frankly, I love the climbing part, but not so much on the running downhill. You know running can get a little monotonous, well at least for me.

We kick-started our adventure at Hutan Lipur Lubok Semilang around 8am. As expected, a few of the runners are running on a goal pace and was no where to be seen after a while.

Luckily, I have Kak Ella to keep me company. We take our own sweet time climbing the steps while enjoying the beautiful forest and taking pictures and selfie/wefie. Some of them are lucky to spot giant Hornbill too.

Just keep on climbing... Never give up!

Stunning pic taken by Kak Ella. She does learn some photography skills from her photographer friend. Hehehe...

The climb was quite easy in the beginning, until 3060 stairs where it is much steeper and challenging.
We began to feel tired and shortness of breath, hence we pause for a little rest. 

Finally.......... the last few stairs to the top. 

Yay... I did it! It took me almost 2 hours to complete the climb challenge. So unfit of me! Hahaha....

The scenic, breathtaking view of Langkawi. 

As for the run, we only managed to jog for 2km before we call it a day.

Love the mist and fresh air.

Some of the incredible runners that completed the challenge. Wow.... I really got to salute them! 

It was a memorable and fun experience with the fellow bloggers, runners, sponsors and organizer. Thanks for having me! XOXO

BDB Climb & Run 2016 is the most unique physical fitness challenge, everyone should join. It is fun, do-able and a great mental & physical challenge. Are you up for the challenge?
