In addition, GRIT Event Management as the Event Organiser for this year Padawan Raft Safari on behalf of MPP take a another step by introducing the computerizing and digitalizing the timing system this year to ensure more accurate result compared to previous years, timing of the competitors are recorded manually. By digitalizing the timing system, the recording is more accurate, and the timing results is uploaded to our website https://gritevent.com/padawan-raft-safari-2019-results/ so every participants get to track their timing after the race.

GRIT Event Management has focused on something subtle too this year. A big plastic bag with nylon string installed is given every team during the race pack collection for the participants to store their foods and accessories and to be tied to their rafts afterwards so it won’t be flushed away by the water. This also enable the participants to keep all their rubbish in that big bag without throwing it into the river.

Besides that, by collaborating with What About Kuching (WAK) this year, Padawan Raft Safari is able to be listed as one of the event inside it, so it has more exposure to different crowd this year.

Lastly, local communities of Padawan are also involved. The medical team is from Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia, while the event also has the full support from all the JKK from each village, to ensure the success of this event.
