The course for the Chittoor Half Marathon is cross country - train well and run off road and on uneven surfaces You will loop around the CMC Chittoor facility.
The terrain is undulating and includes a few steep sections.
 

All the runs start and finish at the new OPD block of the CMC Vellore Chittoor campus. The 10km runners run along the periphery of the campus along a jeepable track and take in a few off road loops along trails and ultimately crest a small hill to finish back at the OPD. They actually run a 10.55km distance.

The Half Marathoners follow the same route and then having done one loop, do a U turn and loop back in the opposite direction.

The 5 km runners do a U turn at the 1st 2.5km mark and return.

The 10.55km and the half marathon route is scenic and challenging - it is best to wear trail running shoes - do not attempt to run this in minimalist footwear.

The scenery is outstanding, so if you can, bring along a digital camera.

The scattered showers will add to the greenery and the water bodies along the route. Practice running in the outdoors and off road on trails in your neighbourhood.

Run for a cause - run for their health

As you know running is great for YOUR health and as you start training you'll begin to reap the benefits first hand. But why not make a difference to India and RUN FOR THEIR HEALTH? every day in India over 160 women die in childbirth, usually from preventable causes. People as young as 30 are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and then face a lifetime struggling to keep their sugar levels safe or risking serious consequences. Meanwhile families are ripped apart by young deaths from cancers many of which might have been avoided if only the right information and testing had been available.

 

Christian Medical College Vellore has over 100 years of experience in both community health and specialist hospital medicine: seeking to bring the very best care to people from all layers of society. The facilities at the new campus at Chittoor are already being used to reach out to the local community, and we'll be able to do so much more if YOU RUN FOR THEIR HEALTH.

Every runner can raise some money to help provide health care for the needy - click here to find out more. We've got the tools powered by Wishberry - you've got the energy, together we can make a difference.

 
 
 Running Safe on this cross country route

Running Safe on this cross country route: You need to train on rough surfaces and you will enjoy this run. Eye and body coordination is key, with sharp reflexes especially where you run downhill. If it is a bit wet, be a little more careful. There is medical help from CMC Hospital which we all hope you will never need, but you are in good hands.
Half marathoners - especially the slower runners, should sip water at regular intervals as well as the Sports drink along the way to ensure you don't dehydrate

CMC Vellore Christian Medical College Vellore is a not for profit multi-speciality teaching hospital in northern Tamil Nadu, about 140km to the west of Chennai. It traces its origins to the year 1900 when Dr. Ida Scudder started caring for women and children in a one-bedded clinic attached to her parents' bungalow in Vellore. Now it is a highly reputed medical college with leading medical professionals and highly sophisticated equipment, treating people from all over India and the sub-continent. Dr. Ida's concern for the marginalised is still at the centre of the mission today.

Run for Health This event has been organised to raise funds to subsidise treatment for the disadvantaged at the new campus in Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh. You can easily set up your own fundraising web page and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. While running for your health, raise money for their health. Just Rs.500 will pay for ten people to have a free doctor's consultation at the brand new outpatient facility.
