ABOUT HOT & COLD RUN

The Hot & Cold Charity Run was organised to celebrate the heroic feats of two extraordinary young men who successfully conquered two of the world’s toughest foot races in opposing hot and cold climate extremes - the 9th 6633 Arctic Ultra and the Gobi March -- in their bid to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS.

Jeff and Jerry both share the same passion to end AIDS in Malaysia, particularly efforts to reduce new HIV infections among young people. It is for this reason that they came on board as Ambassadors of the Red Ribbon Youth Club, an advocacy project by MAF to promote HIV awareness, volunteerism, peer education and support among young Malaysians. THE RED RIBBON YOUTH CLUB was set up in early 2010 and its membership has since grown to more than 6,000 youths. Over 12 local and international universities/college took part in this programme and they all carried out HIV awareness campaigns and activities in their campus. These institutions include University Malaya, University Utara Malaysia, Taylor’s College, UniKL, University Sains Malaysia and many more.

The 250 km seven-day, six-stage, self-supported endurance foot race covered the Ancient Silk Road in the Xinjiang Province in Northwest China combining a cool weather mountain trail race and hot desert race. The route follows the Tian Shan Mountains, one of the largest mountain ranges in Asia, through the pastoral Alpine countryside and a trek across the rough terrain of the Black Gobi Desert.
