Bangalore Marathon now on May 15

After a couple of false starts, the organisers have finally found enough sponsors to organize the Bangalore Marathon. Hindustan Lever is the main sponsor and the race is called the Lipton Bangalore Marathon.

Ever since the marathon was postponed, my training schedule went for a toss. I wish it hadn’t got postponed. I was fresh from Chennai Marathon and it would’ve been great to carry on the good form. Now, I’ll have to re-start training from scratch.

The officials have a stupid rule. The rules say “Anybody wanting to participate will have to show a medical fitness certificate prior to registering at Kanteerava stadium.” What about us folks outside Bangalore? Bummer!
