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.
About The Race From The EO
Government of Central Java and Bank Jateng, in collaboration with KOMPAS Daily held Bank Jateng Borobudur Marathon 2017, a running race event with “Reborn Harmony” as its main theme.
With the aim to rejuvenate the spirit of togetherness of runners and the people of Central Java.
Growth in the economic sector can also be impacted by a good sports tourism program, and running event is one way to do this.
Raising the values of history and Borobudur culture as the world heritage culture.
My original race schedule plan, was having no more race after the BTS 100K. But I was lucky to steal podium 3 on the 5K race a month ago, and I got a free entree to this race. So here goes nothing.
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.
