HOTEL employee Khir Salleh, 54, often runs 20km from his home in Taman Bukit Bendera to Holiday Inn Resort in Batu Ferringhi, and his training paid off in the Penang Run 2017.

Khir grabbed the second spot in 1:25:36s in the men’s senior veteran category.

“Running to work from my home helps build my stamina.

“Although I did not beat my record, I am satisfied with my second placing,” he said after receiving his prize at the Esplanade.

Khir was the champion in the men’s veteran category of Komtar Tower Run in 2011 and also won in the same category for the 10km distance of Ipoh International Run in 2013 and 2014.

In the Penang Bridge Run half-marathon category for veterans, he bagged the top spot in 2010 and 2011, and second placing in 2009, 2012 and 2013.

Quality assurance officer Annie Yee Pei Ni, 27, won the half-marathon Women Open category in the Penang Run.

“I have not fully recovered from fever and flu but I persevered. I train about 90 minutes a day,” she said.

Kenyan James Munyi Maregu, 24, was the winner of the half- marathon Men Open category.

“This was my first time taking part in the Penang Run and I had a lot of fun.

“I train two hours in the morning and 50 minutes in the evening daily to boost my stamina,” he said.

Penang Island City Council mayor Datuk Maimunah Mohd Sharif completed the 4km Fun Run.

“I am happy to hear that there were about 4,500 people from 20 countries joining this event,” she said.

The Penang Run was jointly organised by Actife Style Concept, the state government and the council.
