ADHM and SCMM qualifying chip timed 10K and Half Marathon run
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.
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.
