Race day !
What is the Start time for various categories ?
21 kms - 6.15 am - Reporting time 4.45 am
10 kms - 6.45 am - Reporting time 5.30 am
5 kms - 7.15 am - Reporting time 6 am
Please keep in mind
1. Although CME has four entry gates , Only the main gate shall be open on the race day ( attaching google map link) . Reason being that since civilians are allowed entry that day ( which is usually not allowed) they want to tighten the security. So there will be two levels of security. One by the police & other by the military officials. This could take time
2. Please don’t carry any sharp objects / match box / any kind of explosives on the race day. There is very strict security as mentioned before
3. Runners , Please wear your bib on the front of your t shirt. Don’t carry safety pins in your bag , they won’t allow it inside ( no sharp objects) . Without bibs no one will be allowed inside. Wear the bib in front with safety pins ( we sent you a bunch in your goodie bag. But you can use any safety pins) .
4. Please remember to write your emergency contact name & no at the back of your bib.
5. Do carry your id cards ( even a soft copy will do), personal medicines & cash . Don’t worry about hydration and energy supplements , we have it all planned but if you have a particular requirement then you can surely carry it.
6. It’s very important for runners to warm up before they start their run. We have organised some sessions. In order to enjoy them request you to come early.
7. There is nutritional breakfast available for all the attendees.
8. There will also be fruits available before and after the run for everyone
9. There will be a recovery center where we have physiotherapists and medical facilities.
10. You are being photographed. Remember to Smile !
Is there parking available ?
There is ample parking around 200 mtrs away from the holding area , however we suggest that you all car pool if you can so that there is less congestion during security check
Am coming by public transport. How far is the holding area?
The holding area is about 1.5 kms from the main gate. If you are taking a public transport, don’t worry, we have arranged for golf carts & buses to drop you off to the main parking lot which is just 200 mtrs away from the holding.
Can cheer buddies go on the route?
Unfortunately no. The runners will get disturbed if they do so. There is a holding area where they can get entertained & have their breakfast.
I have a small child / old parents as cheer buddy. Will some volunteers be there to take care of them ?
We have NCC cadets as volunteers who are quite young. We will not be able to take responsibility of looking after any cheer buddy one on one.
What about my photograph? Can I carry my phone? I can’t run with a phone in hand & my cheer buddy is not allowed on the route
Yes, you can carry your phone. In case you are running and don’t want to run with the phone , Don’t worry , we will have photographers along the route who will click your sweaty & hopefully smiling faces . We will provide you a link where you can download those pics at no cost!
Are there baggage counters and lockers for our valuables ?
We do have a baggage counter but we don’t have a locker system. We would advice you to not carry any valuables that you might be scared to lose.
Race Expo !
When is the race expo?
The race expo for everyone is in Paraplegic Rehab Center on Dec 9&10 th from 10 am to 4pm. The reason for doing the expo here is to give you an opportunity to see where your contribution is going to. The soldiers who have lost their limbs live and thrive here. What matters to them is not their disability but their Ability!
For outstation participants the expo is on 16th at CME from 11am to 3 pm
Can someone else collect my bib?
Yes, as long as you send the authority letter and your identity card with the person picking the bib. It can be digital/ mail / WhatsApp . Need not be a physical copy.
I am not available on these dates and I have no one to collect the bibs on my behalf. What do I do ?
Some fantastic humans of Pune have volunteered to pick up the bibs on your behalf if you are in their vicinity. Please mail us and we will connect you to them.
Is spot registration allowed?
Yes, on the Bib expo day, you can do spot registration but your bib won’t have your name & you shall not get any t shirt ( because both of these require prior preparation) The ticket price will be the same as applicable to everyone else.
If I have done multiple registrations, how do I identify the bibs?
Each bib will have the participants name so identifying the bib will not be a problem.
Can we bring kids ?
No one is allowed in the military campus without the bib unfortunately. They are very strict security wise. As a solution we had opened a category called cheerbuddy who can get a bib & breakfast for Rs 250 only.
They won’t be running but can experience the military campus & the electrifying atmosphere.
You can do spot registration for them when you come to collect your bib at the expo in case you want to get them.
