I just called up CROSSOVER consulting, the organisers for the 1st Lipton Bangalore marathon. I was informed that the event is on schedule for May 14th. The press release covering the event is supposed to appear next week.
Still early days… but I would like to give half marathon a try at Bangalore, and target breaking 2 hours.
UPDATE (Feb 20): The second Lipton Bangalore International marathon 2006 will be flagged off from the Sree Kanteerava stadium here on May 14, according to a release from Cross Over Sports Pvt. Limited, a sports management company. Lipton for the second year will be the title sponsor. Check news on the press release.
I have also started my training for the event (Half marathon), my first run was over this weekend (Feb 25), an 8KM stroll in the park!
UPDATE (Apr 9): The event stands postponed to September, 2006.
