Second team members are Thomas Eng, Tony Seakin, Philip Ramachandran and JacekBrodniewicz.
1st team has brought the honor for MR25 as they clinched 2nd place. In fact they almost came in champion as second and third leg runner they fought hard to take the leading position. However, we faced a great challenge from Gurkhas because their last runner was very strong and overtook us at about last 2km.
We are proud team MR25 is strong enough to beat at least one Gurkhas team and all other strong teams. No doubt, our second team was also doing the good job as came in 6th place.
