It was a pleasant surprise to find out that my own city will be having a half marathon, and that too just a couple of weeks from now! The last Noida half marathon was held in 2005, and was a very low key event, but hopefully, things will be better this time around with some big names like Unitech, Jaypee and ATS backing up the event.
The event is named Jaypee-Unitech Noida Half Marathon 2007 and is being promoted as a race against Global Warming and Ozone holes. The total prize is Rs 5,46,500. The event will take place on Noida- Greater Noida express way under pass near Sector 105 with the start and finish near the under pass.

Registration forms will be available from the Noida Half marathon office at C-2/25 Sector 31, Noida from Aug 26th.
