Ultramarathon goes on despite discovery of body in ravine

GOMBAK: The “Route 68 Challenge” ultramarathon went on without a hitch despite the discovery of a woman’s body in a 15m-deep ravine at Jalan Karak Lama.

The 50km and 68km road ultramarathon was held along the Federal Route 68 (FR68) trunk road between Gombak and Bentong.

It is learnt that a group of cyclists participating in the challenge found the woman’s body sprawled in the ravine Sunday morning.

The woman, whose legs were bound with rope, was believed to have been murdered.

As of Sunday afternoon, participants of the marathon ran and cycled past the crime scene with indifference, with only a few people stopping to see the body.

The police forensics team and K9 unit were still scouring the area for evidence as of 2.30pm.-thestar
