Big Walk through the years, ahead of its return to iconic venue

On Nov 26, the National Steps Challenge The New Paper Big Walk 2017 returns to the National Stadium. The iconic venue had hosted the Big Walk from 1991 to 2006. Here are just some of the memorable moments from previous walks at the National Stadium.

Walking in style

Senior security officer Ramli Ahmad is a fancy-dress veteran of the Big Walk. In 1994, he wore a traditional Malay costume. A year later, he cut his hair short, used a big white cloth as a napkin, sucked on a pacifier and carried a 2-litre bottle of soft drink so he would be the first “baby” to cross the finishing line. In 1996, it was an outfit of empty drink cans, and in 1997, Mr Ramli wore bottles of Yakult.
