D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd is collaborating with the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT) in organising The Alpha Challenge 2020 for the Brunei December Festival (BDF), themed ‘Legend of the Hunters’.
The Alpha Challenge 2020 comprises two events – a virtual hike dubbed the Hill Hunters Edition and an obstacles race known as the Tide Hunters Edition.
The virtual hike was held from December 1-15, while the obstacles course will take place on December 27, at the Berakas Forest Reserve Recreational Park.
An official signing ceremony for the event partners of the obstacles race was held at the D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd premises yesterday. Representatives of several organisations and corporations were present.
Managing Director Jackson Ting signed on behalf of D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd with Operations Manager Ngu Tiing Siang as witness.
Brunei Press Sdn Bhd, as the exclusive print and digital media partner, was represented by Senior Manager Finance and Operations Suzie Houng, while Advertising and Business Development Manager Adeline C G Ting witnessed the signing.
There are two categories for the Tide Hunters Edition – 5km and 10km – which aim to challenge the participants both physically and mentally.
The organising committee of the Alpha Challenge 2020 will be taking extra safety precautions in accordance with the rules and regulations issued by the Ministry of Health (MoH), by limiting the number of participants for each time slot and dropping competitions from this year’s challenge.
Participants will be required to use gloves, while leg obstacles will be emphasised to avoid physical hand contact.
