Like last year’s event, a special category for the students from IBSA (Indian Blind School Association), patients of type 1 diabetes under the banner of REVORD and under privileged children shall be sponsored by the group and set an example of good health and free spirit.

Every registered participant will get a running bib with an electronic timing chip that measures the time taken to complete the distance, a dry fit tee shirt and other goodies at the time of bib collection, a medal and nutritious refreshment after the race. The online timing certificate of every participant can be downloaded and shall be accessible on the website always. Besides this there will be a trophy for the school with maximum participation.
