Strangely, with TOI as the title partner for the event, there seems to be no news on the run even in the Bangalore TOI edition for Jan 12th. I checked the ePaper, and nothing there. I doubt if the results would actually appear on the official website http://www.toimidnightmarathon.in/ anytime soon in the future.

  1. I ran the marathon but i do not know the result. No results on the website or any where. The timing partner mentioned on the website is timing planet. Results is not updated so far. Bad for a runner. Have to wait and see when the result will be shown
