Those who live along the New Pantai Expressway (NPE) or frequent the highway, take note. The NPE will be temporarily closed this Sunday, from 2am to 11am.

The road closure is to make way for the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge, which will take place this Sunday morning. The two part run – round one was held at the Besraya Highway in July – will have 10 km and 21 km distances, with the start and finish line at Sunway Pyramid. The half marathon will take runners all the way from Sunway to Kuchai Lama along the E10, before a U-turn back to where they started.

Away from the NPE, the Sunway area should be pretty congested as well this Sunday morning, as runners would have their cars parked in the area as well as the mall. Keep this in mind when thinking of where to go for breakfast/brunch.

As this writer would be part of the “problem” this Sunday, I’d like to apologise to you on behalf of my fellow idiots (smart people will be sleeping soundly at 3am, obviously) and the race organisers. Sorry for the inconvenience, “one year one time only.”
