Running and Living is organizing the first edition of the Shimla Half Marathon on Sunday, Oct 4th. What makes it even better is that it is a long weekend on account of Oct 2nd being the national holiday, so great time to spend with your family, and enjoy a great half marathon in the hills. I am really looking forward to being there!
