Covering a 5km & 10km Run Event

1. Last month we won a tender to cover a Run event. The EE Run 2019 was the 5th Edition of the event which started in 2011. Held once in every 2 years, organised by Suruhanjaya Tenaga, Putrajaya. The event was held in Putrajaya in front of their very distinct, diamond-shaped building.

2. The pre-event planning & discussion was smooth. The organising team were very friendly & helpful which made our job much easier. Information were passed on quick and always available whenever we requested for them.

3. It was a 2 days cover whereby our scope of work was to cover the Race Kit Collection as well as the main Race Event on the 17 August 2019. So I had our crew prepared and we headed on to the Race Kit collection day.

Us... the crew

5. After collecting their Race Kits, runners had to check to see if the scanner was able to detect their bib. This was to ensure they the system will be able to detect them as they run passed any of the secretly located check-points.

6. After that, the registered runners will be lured by our crew to have their portraits taken. As usual, some were camera shy & some felt that 1 or 2 shots were not sufficient. Well, our job was to take photos anyway...

7. The next challenge was to arrive on location by 6am to capture the event preparation before the race. Luckily we managed that. The activities were supposed to start at 7am. With big groups of friends joining the event, a group photo is a must.
