After that amazing race route from Adidas King of the Road it’s difficult to think of other races of equal caliber, but never fear, there are still quite some interesting runs before we close this Octoberfest month.
Two of the races I’ll join before the month ends:
- 26 October: OctobeRUN Festival (3K/5K/10K)
- 31 October: ISUZU Shake, Rattle, and RUN! (5K Fun Run)

31 October: ISUZU Shake, Rattle, and RUN! (5K Fun Run)
This is one of the more interesting runs because it’s the first one that I’ll be joining to be held at night! It is also interesting that there’s also a prize for the best costume because it is held on a Halloween night. Sure it’s only 5K but I think this would be a lot of fun… I wonder what costume I’d wear…
P250, inclusive of Finisher’s Shirt and Trick or Treat bag

Surely there are still more races out there, I’d love to join as much as I could, but then again I’m still one person, a beginner for that matter, and I do have to choose my races and divide my strength for all these races.
