Date: November 6th, Sunday Distance: 5km, You can ofcourse run more if you like :) Cause: This year we are supporting the "BITS Connect 2.0" program and there will be a nominal registration fee to support this cause. Volunteers: There will be run co-ordinators in most cities (with large participation).
About the run: The main goal of this run is to motivate BITSians all around the world to bring running into everyone’s life and thereby a healthy lifestyle. Last year we had more than 600 runners registered across different batches running in different parts of the world and this year we expect more hitting the road on the day. You can r un the route of your choice by running in your neighborhood or pairing up with your running buddies from the same or nearby cities. The run is completely virtual and so you are your own judge!
All runners who register on the BITSAA website (link to be circulated soon) will get a participation certificate on completing the run. Your local group co-ordinator's details will be emailed to you, on registration incase you want to run along with other BITSian runners in your city. Please feel free to spread the word of the ru n and invite as many BITSians possible, and get them registered for the run. If you have Non-BITSian runner pals, feel free to invite them to jog along.

The initiative was started by BITSians, who are also recreational runners, with the main aim of promoting running within the BITSian community and to use it as a means to network and stay connected with friends.
