Get ready with your shoes to finish your first 5k, or to brace yourself for a personal best timing in Bits2Marathon' s 2nd edition of the "BITS World 5k Run".
The BITS World 5k run is organised to get more BITSians on the road, running and getting fit. The idea is to have the BITSians around the world run on the same day. With more than 150 BITSians from across the batches running in 2009, the 2012 run is going to be bigger and better organized.The run is in the same format as last year with participants picking any route of their choice and run in any part of the world they belong to. In larger cities, BITSians can co-ordinate with their local group co-ordinators to run as a bunch. Your local group co-ordinator's details will be emailed to you, on registration.
Date: September 26th, 2010 (Sunday) Distance: 5 km, You can ofcourse run more if you like :) Venue: The run is virtual, and you will be running your own race. So you can choose any running route in your own town/city. We will intimate you if there are multiple runners running in your city, so that you can buddy up and run together as a team Cause: We are trying to promote BITS.aid campaign to support Deepam and Atmanirbhara! No Registration Fee: There is no registration fee, but we need your basic details like Name, Complete BITS ID, Location etc. to keep track of the runners and for organization. Who can Run? : Anyone with some enthu :)
Please feel free to spread the word of the run and forward this mail to 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, only after they register on the page below.
So what are you waiting for! Get your shoes ready, and start running! :-)

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.
