It is that time of the year you experience a runner's high!!!
In the 4th edition of BITS world 5k run on 23rd September, Sunday there will be a mix of seasoned runners running for their personal best along-side enthusiastic first timers who want to rid their couch, all aiming at the finish line and latcha sessions with BITSians. So get ready, all you need is a pair of running shoes and enthu! Yes, it’s that simple!
"Just do it" - don’t think, don’t ask, don’t talk about it, don't regret it, just do it.
The main goal of this run is to motivate BITSians all around the world to bring running into their life and thereby a healthy lifestyle.
