Kuwait City Trips 2012 (Mad Musicals & Charity Run)

night of music and morning of fun run
November 15 and 17, 2012

Mad Musical 8 is a 2 night musical stage play compose of talented expat singers showcasing their Broadway appeal. I attended the 2nd night, November 15, 2012 in their new home and very elegant Live Theater located in the basement of Discovery Mall. Their former stage location is at Ahmadi. Ticket costs 7.5 KD ($26/PHP1,090) on 2 hour event (8pm-10pm) with 10-min break.

Kuwait Charity Run is a fun run to raise funds for donations and a good cause. I registered online and joined the 10 kilometer which is my 1st time, not to mention that it is now winter season. Registration fee is 15 KD ($52/PHP2,180) on an almost 4 hour event (730am-1130am) in which gun starts at 8am for both 10-kilometer and 21-kilometer leg. Race bag includes printed race program and route map, checklist, dry shirt sponsored by Nike, wrist band, bib with timing chip at the back and freebies.

By the way, I was too disappointed when I claimed my race bag due the shirt that was given to me was LARGE size which supposedly SMALL size only as what I ordered during online registration. In so much frustration I'd even asked for a refund and message the organizers in their fb page but nothing happened. Of course, the purpose of that dry shirt is to used it during the race.

Kuwait Charity Run is a non-profit group founded to encourage community members, runners, and athletes to raise funds and donations for good causes and engage in outdoor sports activities.

Out of 364 participants in 10-kilometer leg, I finished 330th rank (52%) with output time of 1 hour and 19 minutes. Since this is my 1st time to join for leg longer than 5 km, that record is quite an honor for me. Most of the joiners are expats mainly from Europe continent, even the top 3 finishers.
