The 30×30 Run this Sunday

This coming Sunday, July 15, 2007, the Chennai Runners will do a 30×30.

What is 30×30?

The idea is to have 30 Chennai Runners participate in the approximately 30 kilometer run from the Chennai outskirts to Mahabalipuram.

While the Chennai runners practice multiple times a week, most of those runs are of shorter distances, ranging from 5 to 15 kms. Once every few months, these longer runs are planned and this is something that everyone looks up to it with respect and prime themselves for what is definitely an arduous torture.

Starting Point: Near ECR Toll Booth.
Starting Time: 4:15 AM (Its crazy early but its the only way to escape the sun)
Finishing Point: Coral Surf Restaurant at the beginning of Mahabalipuram.

If you have been regularly running and think you are in good shape, you can join in the run.

Carpool Pickup Points at 3:45 AM
A few of the runners can help give you a ride.

1) Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam. Please email skandrikar[@]
2) Dimensions Gym, CP Ramaswamy Road, Alwarpet. Please email harican[@]

Voluntary Fee: Rs.100. The money goes towards water points, snacks and first aid. A few friends are supporting the runners by coming in their cars and bikes and helping with water and food.

As for me, I’m participating but mostly in spirit. if I stretch myself hard, I’d probably clock 10 kms max. But its fun participating.
