Due to some unexpected changes to our schedule this weekend, we just weren’t in shape in the morning for the Sunday run. This week Runners High scheduled a 10k on the regular World 10k race route on Cubbon road, and I am pretty bummed about missing this. 😦

We have a 12k run scheduled for next weekend in our neighborhood itself. Have never run this distance before. I really really hope things fall in place for us to make it.

24th April 2011: 8K at IIM Bangalore

This Sunday, Runner’s High arranged for the long run at the IIM Bangalore campus. Seems students are off at this time of the year, and so that gave a crowd-free running track. The weather was cloudy, and the tree covered roads looked really inviting. We managed to reach the spot 45 mins before the run because of over-estimating the travel time. I have always felt that reaching a running spot before time always helps. It lets you relax and get comfortable with the surroundings.

Sunfeast World 10k is now TCS World 10k

Just now got a mail from Procam about the new name for their annual World 10k run in Bangalore. What used to be called the Sunfeast World 10k till now, will be called the TCS World 10k in 2011 at least. Also, Santhosh’s rant not withstanding, the website still insists that June 5th 2011 is the day of the run, and has got actually a counter running on the website.

No details on the course of the run, as usual. However, this would be more keenly awaited this year because of the massive metro related work happening all over the traditional World 10k routes.
