    Congrats to the ones who did it! I gave up because of the weather...

    Guys, I just tried to register online but it is no longer possible (so I guess I will be on the queue tomorrow morning:) . I will do either 40km or 25km depending on the weather. Is there a group for the 25km?

    Friends,
    If you haven't yet bought the tickets, please do so. It'll save time on the day of event.

    I am tentaive but can do 25 KM...I think its a good idea to split the group into
    10, 15, 25, 40 KM...

    Well, I was about to do 25 km but I am also not in the mood for getting up early... Still thinking :)

    I would like to do the 25 km (mostly because I don't want to start that early), and I can coordinate if there are more people for the 25 km.

    May 28, 2011

  • Anna N.

    Are there only hardcore walkers? Nobody in for 15 or 25 km?

    May 23, 2011

  • Venkat

    @Panam: 8 - 8.5hrs for 40k, incl. breaks.

    April 26, 2011

  • Chetan P.

    Now I am in... registered for 40 kms.

    April 26, 2011

  • Chetan P.

    @Venkat: I will register for 40 kms.

    What is the time frame you guys are looking at for completing 40K? I am really out of practice but am getting tempted to give it a shot!

    April 26, 2011

  • Venkat

    Thnx for the company guys! I am gonna do the 40KM :)
    @Chetan: there doesn't seem to be last date for registration; because you'll be printing the ticket yourself at home!
    This time, let's try to form a "Bad Boys" team to counter the "Charlie's Angels" :) @Helle: yes, we have to start early! I need to find another coordinator for those who want to start later!
