    The BITS2Marathon group is a group for fellow BITSians (Birla Institute of Technology, Pilani) and alumni to help budding runners achieve their dream of running a Marathon (42.195km). 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. Read more about the group at www.bits2marathon.com

    The main goal of this run is to motivate BITSians all around the world to bring running into everyone’s life and thereby a healthy lifestyle. Last year we had more than 600 runners registered across different batches running in different parts of the world and this year we expect more hitting the road on the day. You can run the route of your choice by running in your neighborhood or pairing up with your running buddies from the same or nearby cities. The run is completely virtual and so you are your own judge!

    All runners who register on the BITSAA website will get a participation certificate on completing the run. Your local group co-ordinator’s details will be emailed to you, on registration incase you want to run along with other BITSian runners in your city. Please feel free to spread the word of the run and invite 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.

    The 3rd edition of BITS world 5K run on 6th November, Sunday there will be a mix of seasoned runners running for their personal best along-side enthusiastic first timers who want to rid their couch, all aiming at the finish line and latcha sessions with BITSians.

    Here are the details:

    Date: November 6th, Sunday
    Distance: 5km
    Registration: http://www.bitsaa.org/?page=bits5krun_2011

    This year the cause of the run is supporting the “BITS Connect 2.0” program and there will be a nominal registration fee to support this cause.

    So all BITSians, get connected and run healthy.
