A few stories related to the run:

  • Dheeraj ran: first in the run, then back to hostel, and then for his Program Analysis and Verification exam.
  • Arnab was invigilating an exam, but he had to wait on the road, since the road was blocked for the run.
  • Arun ran, despite having his hand fractured.
  • Almost everyone got a T-shirt and a cap. IISc Associate Director, N Balakrishnan announced Rs.100 book voucher for each registered participant.
  • bhOndOO was told by CSA security guard with an emotional tint, “Sir, Main bhi dauda. Mujhe bahut achchaa lagaa.” (Sir, I also ran. I liked it very much.).
  • Earlier, the number of online registrations reached over 1100. But since on-the-spot registrations were still on, total number of runners were around 1500.
  • Voices, the IISc newsletter, is writing the media report.

A wonderful description of the event is given by Dr Gururaja (CES) (Thanks Gururaja for the comment).

Update: Anaska’s pingback made me realize the importance of the last photo above. The poster was designed by him! Anaska, wonderful designs. Great work.

    I was also part of the event, both as a volunteer and as a participant and yes, it was great fun! Cheers to the spirit – to put it in the director’s words – especially, of the participants aged above 55 and below 15.
