MUMBAI: Over 8,000 people will take to the streets of Powai on Sunday morning for the Hiranandani Powai Run powered by The Times of India.The addition this year will be a 21km run, which will pass through JVLR and the Powai flyover. Its three earlier editions were on the Hiranandani premises itself.
Besides the half marathon of 21km, there is the 4km laker's trail and a 10km run as well. Those participating in the 21km and 10km runs will get a timing chip.The organizers said that the enthusiasm of participants was exciting and many runners are from those living outside Powai.The reporting time for the 21km run is 4.30am, for the 10km run is 5am and 4km run is 6.15am.
The organizers have requested participants to use public transport to avoid congestion inside Hiranandani Gardens. However, no public transport will be permitted inside Hiranandani Gardens.After the run there will be a Carnival, which is being organized along with the Marathon for the first time.
"The fun starts after the run ends. Central Avenue-from High Street to Forest Street-will be the location of the post-run Powai Run Carnival. The carnival will give all those who are not participating in the run to feel part of it. This stretch will come alive at 9am with a fun breakfast and brunch. We want residents to come out and connect with each other," said Deepak Daryanani, CEO of the Powai run organizing committee.
A kids' fun zone will have a bouncy, train, merry-go-round, tattoo and face-painting among other activities.
