100 Days to go!! Hyderabad Marathon 2014

 4 years ago    

100, 99, 98.. the countdown has begun for one of the most awaited athletic events this year. On 24th August, 2014, the fourth edition of the Hyderabad Marathon, sponsored by Airtel and organized by the Hyderabad Runners Society, will kick off from People’s plaza, Necklace road and culminate at GMC Balayogi Stadium, Gachibowli. Started with the objective of creating an interest in fitness, the event has received an overwhelming reception in the past years.marathon2 Marathon aficionados have been preparing for months to build the physical and mental fitness required to participate in the event. The diet, the early rise in the mornings, the purchase of exercise clothes and shoes and the building support groups to encourage each other to push boundaries –it’s all happening with fervor. Some, however, are looking to have just plain fun and an opportunity to freak out and bond with friends and family.

There are three races – the full marathon, the half marathon and the 5k race. The full marathon is a challenging 42km stretch. Early bird registrations with discount can be done before 15th July. There are cash prizes awaiting the top three men and women finishers in each race segment. There are also numerous other prizes and goodies in store for each age group. There is a huge network of champions, volunteers and partners who are working behind the scenes to make this a successful experience.

Last year, the full marathon was completed at a shortest time of 02:31:31 by Ram Singh Yadav and the half marathon just took 01:11:06 to finish. However there is no reason to worry, if you finish the full and half marathons by 6.5 hours and 3.5 hours respectively, you are eligible to receive a certificate. So, if you feel you are up for a good workout and want to have the experience of your life, go ahead, sign up and have a fun-filled day.
