Sunday April 10th, 2016,
7:00 AM to 9:00 AM
There will be two Categories of the Run ( actually, we can even Walk !) – 2 km and 5 km – suitable for children, short distance walkers of all ages, not only from the Freemasons’ fraternity but from the running groups and general public as well. The plan is to give an opportunity to those who find it difficult to take part in Marathons extending to long distances of 10 km, 21km and 42 km. When a non-regular Runner is rewarded with rewards for the effort, he/she is likely to convert that into a daily habit and the health awareness becomes a part of his life.
Venue & Time of run-
Both the Runs will be held within the Nandanam YMCA Grounds and adjoining campus and will be conducted between 7 am and 9 am.
There will be a pre-Run programme of eminent Star Runners giving tips on stretching and efficiency of Walking/Running. Along the Route there will be Water Points with refreshments/nourishments and also Cheer groups to pep up the participants. On completion, they will be awarded the Finisher’s Medal and Breakfast.
There will be time-pass entertainments like Magic show, face Painting, Balloon sculpting, Mehendhi art etc during the event .
We are likely to have the presence of some famous celebrity personalities to add flavor and glamour to the event.
Registration Fee -
Every participant will receive a T-Shirt, which will be distributed along with the Bib a day before the event. Registrations will be done through Donor Passes valued at Rs.500 per person and also Online registration.
1. Concept of Short Run - Marathons of 42 km, 21 km, 10 km distances are high-intensity, high-endurance sports and can be done only by regular runners. We have limited our FB Run to 2 km and 5 km to facilitate non-Marathon Runners, Children and normal people of all ages to participate and develop the habit of regular Walking/Running. This is a health awareness initiative aimed at removing the sedentary aspect in our lifestyles and adding pep into it. It is also an opportunity to connect Freemasonry with the general public. In India disorders such as Diabetes, Hypertension are prevalent and having the habit of regular Walk/Jog will greatly delay or totally rule out their onset. FBR 2015 is aimed to impart this habit among non-Marathoners.
2. Cost-Benefit - The Entry Fee of Rs.500 covers the following costs:
3. Charity Beneficiaries - We have identified Avvai Home Orphanage and Madras Dyslexia Association as the Charity beneficiaries, to start with. A few more such projects will be added in due course.
