TUMPAT: About 3,000 Umno members took part in a run held in conjunction with the party's 71st anniversary here today.
The 30-km run that started from Pengkalan Kubor, here, was flagged off by acting Umno division chief Datuk Mohd Rosdi Abdul Aziz.
Rosdi said the run will finish at Pasir Pekan about noon.
"From Pasir Pekan, I will hand over the 71 flags to the other group led by Kota Baru Umno division deputy chief Datuk Mohamed Hasnan Che Hussain. They will then continue their journey to Kota Baru.
"From Kota Baru, the group will proceed to Pengkalan Chepa and Bachok," Rosdi told reporters after handing over the flag to Hasnan.
