Techniche – IIT Guwahati will be organising its 9th edition of Guwahati Half Marathon on August 27 from the Bhogeswari Phukanani Indoor Stadium near GNRC Hospital, Dispur.
Techniche, in its 9th edition this year, is the annual techno-management festival organized by the premiere institute.
The annual half marathon will witness professional runners competing in the 21-km run while college and school students seeking to bring home the general championship. The general public will feature in the 6 km-spirit run, while all those artists who might not have the physical capacity to run the 6 km, but still want to support the cause, may compete in a painting competition. All races will start from Bhogeswari Phukanani Indoor Stadium at 6:15 am on August 27.
Ever since its inception in 2009, the half marathon has evolved coherently over the years to currently stand as the largest half marathon in Northeast India. The theme for this year’s Guwahati Half Marathon will be “Organ donation – Live Life, Give Life”.
“Guwahati Half Marathon has become an integral part of the Techniche family. It is a tradition which has been changing this society bit by bit. Spreading love in this world is what this tradition aims to be,” an official statement said.
