Posting this notice on behalf of Ee Pin, an adventure racer:
Come Sunday, Nov 30, at 11:11am, Palawan Beach will see seasoned adventure racers and adventure racers wanna-bes, toeing the start line for an amazing journey, by kayak, on mountain bike, on foot and hanging from a rope.

An excellent opportunity to capture humans in action. Demonstrate your skills in depicting the pain and suffering which participants will experience while navigating the demanding course, from the waters to rainforests around Sentosa and to heights not for the faint-hearted, hanging from a rope.
