Bojio Pisang Relay Penang is a fantastic opportunity to make friends and strengthen bonds. Real bananas will be used as batons. The banana batons can be carried in any manner, but must be with the member at all times during the run – failing which, the team will be disqualified. So just remember not to eat the banana to satiate your hunger during the relay!
