The first ever BOH Highlands run, slated for the 28th of September is a non-competitive 5km charity fun run that takes you through the lush greenery of the Sungei Palas BOH plantation trail in Cameron Highlands. I've run trails before but not in a tea plantation so this is kinda exciting for me. It also gives you the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and cool (with the average lows hovering around 12C or so) setting of the highlands.

The BOH Highlands run is officially endorsed by the Pahang State Tourism Board and all proceeds from the the run will will be channeled to the Malaysia Nature Society (MNS) to help with an environmental conservation project in Cameron Highlands. The event is also supported by Fitness First Malaysia with Copthorne Hotel and Hotel Titiwangsa being the official hotels.
