Hyderabad Half Marathon 2007

I would have loved to run this race, which took place yesterday (Nov 25th), but for my commitment for the Singapore marathon. This was the first time that the Chip Timing was introduced in any race in India, other than the Mumbai and Delhi runs. It was reported that about 30,000 runners participated in the run, which included smaller distances like the 10K also.

Winner Mens 10K : Vipul Saharia

Update [Dec 4, 2007]:
The complete results are now available on the ChampionchipUAE website at:

It shows 126 finishers (male+female) for the Half marathon, though I guess there would be more participants since this is just the number for runners using the timing chip. However, the results do not tally with the results published in the media after the run. The names of the winners seem different both for 10K and 21K.
