Hyderabad Runners' : Airtel Hyderabad Marathon 2014

 

Marathons have come to be a part of our fitness and running culture in recent times. Few people know that the Marathon dates back to the 490 B.C. The Marathon gets it's name in memory of the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield at the site of the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C. Legend has it that the soldier ran 42 kms to deliver the message of the army's victory and immediately collapsed and died on reaching his destination.

This edition of Hyderabad Marathon 2014 is scheduled for Sunday, the 24th August 2014. The event is being organised by the Hyderabad Runners Group. GHAC has been invited to support the event and is facilitating the link to the event.

    Was a good event. Good work done by all the volunteers making sure we don't litter. i felt there should have been more water stations in the last 6-7 kms...
    A good supply of salt, gatorade was ensured - This was a problem with a different event previously.
    Thank you all for the support guys.

    Hello All,
    This will be my second half marathon at AHM. I am totally out of practice... last run was HR 10K club run in march. Am still a little sore from freedom ride on friday.
    Plan to do three runs - 10K, 13K and 16K on tuesday, wednesday and thursday just to build up some confidence.
    As I am out of practice, these runs will be slow and anyone interested in joining me in and around jubilee hills is welcome to join me.
    All the best to you all!
