The entire run is on trail and mud tracks. For the runners there are 3 U turn points on the trail - The first for the 5km runners and the next for the 10km runners, and the last for the 21.1km runners. Book early. Plan to be at the start at least 30 minutes before the start of the race.

The runs are organised by runners for runners. Experience the thrill as you cross the finish line. The course is muddy, stony and rocky so get your ankles strengthened and get a bit more sure footed in your training. The route will test your balance and agility in parts. The route is very scenic and you are quite likely to spot peacocks, Nilgai and perhaps even some hares.

We will have Water refill points every 5km, Max Health Care and our enthusiastic volunteer support for you and a post-run parantha.

An attractive medal, certificate for each finisher of the runs. Given the terrain there will be no water points along the way but the route will be well marked with chalk and signage. The post-run snacks will be from 8 am at the race start/finish location.

Location - Rose Farm, Rose Valley Bandhwari Village off the road connecting Tata Raisina and the Faridabad Gurgaon Highway. Please see the maps both visual and the links to get there.’

Running is a fun activity but running in a race, like engagement in any activity, also comes with attendant risks, which you should be aware of, and only then enter.

Anyone registering for this race should make sure that he/she is medically fit and does not have any precondition – however minor it may seem to them, that would indicate that they should not run eg being on some medication, onset of a cold or flu, not yet recovered from a flu or an injury etc.

This run is cross country which CAN have an incidence of ankle twisting, slipping and falling.
It is important to listen to your body and heart and not push yourself beyond a limit. Walk when tired.
This run is in the dry heat and requires regular hydration to ensure you do NOT get dehydrated or start cramping. Some ingestion of salty items, sports drinks or other solids/liquids is also advisable.

We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.

If you are training for your 1st 5 or 10k, look no further for a great schedule.

There are last week and last day tips to runners available at  http://runningandliving.com/Keen_Runner.html



Remember - train well and you will finish smiling. Do a lot of ankle strengthening exercises, get a bit more sure footed during your practice runs - do a bit of trail running. All the very best. Congratulations on your decision.

The same spot as where the run starts from. Ideally come there for a brief run early morning and arrive at the start of the expo to make sure you get as much info as you can for the next day. The bib pick up for all races will happen here. There will be information provided on the course – definitely plan to be there in person to get familiar with how to get to the start and also get somewhat familiar with the route.

The route is cross country, so strengthen your ankles during training. This is great terrain for eye and body coordination. It is breathtakingly beautiful too,
especially the sunrise. If you are based in the NCR come on any Saturday or Sunday and check out the route.

The race pack pick up is at Rose Farm, Rose Valley, Bandhwari Village - 200m beyond the big new school building per map and link on the website
