It gives the Om Run team great joy to report that under perfect running weather the inaugural Om Run was well attended (estimated over 1500 people ). Thanks to over 250+ volunteers that helped made the event run through smoothly and all of your cooperation on event day.
- 1696 signups, thank you for pre-registering
- and there were over 100 onsite signups
Then the races began. In addition to the first/second/third place finishers in the 2 races (5k, 10k), all finishers were winners and got Om Run medals to prove it
There was the young Shivum Ganesh and several younger ones in strollers at one of the spectrum. Our very own Acharya Prabodh Chaitanya was in our midst finishing the 10K with a flourish and his signature smile.
At the other end of the spectrum were 70+ seniors who all without exception demonstrated such great spirit and were insistent on an encore Om Run.
The weather was perfect, the trail support team was awesome followed by Devaland festivities. The food, generously donated by Dosa Place carried the day.
Please do take this survey to share your feedback to help improve the next edition of Om Run.
More stats and pictures coming soon….
