CC5K #almamatertun 2018 event was organized by Canirunners, my high-school alma-mater running club, for the fourth time. Working with RunID and Lovepink, this race would promote #breastcancerawareness campaign. The course would be around the school neighborhood in Menteng, Central Jakarta. This would be my last race before my second attempt on Rinjani100. Usually I don’t like 5K races since it is too fast and too furious, but I did this race just because it was an event from my high school, and it would be great to see old friends.
Despite I hate short distance race, but sometime it s a necessary evil. Furthermore, this 5K race was a special one, it just beyond the running itself. This year run by L4RI (Love For Republic of Indonesia) was to promote how to embrace diversity in our nation’s culture, religion, race and regions. AAJI (Indonesian Jesuit Alumni Association) worked together with GP ANSOR, a Muslim youth organziation, to create a peaceful and harmonic running race event for everyone, which was organized by Gonzaga College, a Jesuit high school.
