I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting the Indonesian Minister for Youth and Sport Mr. Andi Mallarangeng. I would like to express my thanks to the Minister for his show of support during the press conference and for his strong endorsement of my charity run and even promising (I think) to join for a few kms on the final day.

The press conference was well attended by the media, which meant Berlariterus made it onto the national news and was discussed on various radio stations in Jakarta and Bali. All good! Below are a couple of newspaper/press links.
