The Who’s who of the 42 km runners


BIBD has announced the selection of the 25 runners who have qualified for the BIBD CE-ALAF (Charity Expedition Advocating Life-Long Learning For An Aspiring Future) Midnight Marathon that will take place on November 24.

The announcement was made at the Goldiana Lounge of the Orchid Garden Hotel (OGH), Berakas yesterday during a briefing session delivered by CE-ALAF Project Manager, Ahmad Nazmie Hj Omar, who presented a run-through of the 42km run.

The selected runners are Norliza Abdul Jalil, Nurul Hasibah Hj Mohamad, Gpul Ramli, Jeffrei Mohamad, Rizan Latif, Hassan Kamis, Hapish H Hassanuddin, Khairul Ibrahim, Zulfadli Ali, Anis Ahmad, Faizal Hj Ahmad, Matnarudin Ibrahim, Baharudin Nordin, Dedeq Drahman, Harrisman Ashady Bin Hj Ali, Haji Ahmad Nur’al Hj Abdul Rahman, Muhammad Ali Hj Hamran, Asli Tengah, Pg Mohammad Jefri Pg Hj Aliuddin, Hjh Nabilah Pehin Dato Hj Abas, Rohana Pg Hj Malek, Kai Teng Koh, Masri Daud, Zulfadli Abu Bakar and Mai Ahmad.

During the briefing, BIBD was happy to announce OGH as the official hotel partner for the CE-ALAF 2013. To show its support, OGH is introducing a special hospitality package which includes dinner, breakfast and other benefits for all the participants.

The selected participants were also briefed on and encouraged to run a sponsorship programme whereby they can look for sponsorships. Corporate organisations and individuals will also be given the chance to sponsor their efforts in which the contribution made will go into the CE-ALAF programme fund for every kilometre taken by the runners.

The runners will be trained for four weeks under the care of BIBD’s own Marathon Des Sables (MDS) runners, Hamsul Sulaiman and Ahmad Fathi Junaidi, who ran the toughest footrace held at the Sahara Dessert earlier this year.

It was also announced that these runners will be provided with run clinics on a weekly basis to further help in their training. This will provide them with an avenue for the runners to share their weekly report on their progress, converse and gain invaluable experiences with the MDS runners. The marathon runners will furthermore be provided with a disciplined running exercise plan, crafted by the coaches, to help them prepare for the BIBD CE-ALAF Midnight Marathon

Present during the briefing at OGH was the Managing Director of BIBD, Javed Ahmad, who delivered a speech thanking everyone for making the BIBD CE-ALAF a success and he highlighted how the runners will play a role in creating more opportunities for underprivileged children to access better education opportunities.
