An Interview With Our Brand Ambassador Fadly Gan
1. When did you start your 1st Ultra race? What encouraged you to do so?
1st ultra race for me was the Gunung Nuang Ultra 2016. I managed to do 7 loops (70km). My friends (Rino, Zool, Nazmie, Boojae and Neves) shared their experiences doing the ultra race, and that inspired me to do the ultra race.
2. What are your most memorable race(s)? Why?
Bromo Tengger Semeru 100 2017 was my most memorable race because that was my first 170km trail run. Despite I was facing food poisoning during my run there, I managed to finish the race and out of 50 runners joined that category, only 10 runners able to finish the race within the COT and I am glad that I'm part of the finisher and that was the toughest race i joined in my life!
3. What are your personal advice or the newbies going into ultra-races?
Just run your own race; don't be pressured with other runners pace and always listen to our body
4. As part of "The Dream Chaser", in your own words explain how you contribute to the ultra-running community?
Someone told me to be selfish in a race and just focus on yourself. I can't. I'm different. It's my kind of enjoyment and fulfilment to be able to help others in a race. For me, I choose to create my own memory, meaningful experience and an inspiration to ultra running community. From a runner to another, make your own race a special one. It's not about the time, placing but it's all about fun!
