Apr 5th – Dawn of a new Marathon era

April 5th was the day which led racing pundits to declare that a new era was starting in distance running. Old records were broken, new created, fastest marathons run at Paris and Rotterdam. Times which till yesterday were thought to be sacrosanct became commonplace. It was really a coming up to age for the new breed of marathon runners.

Here’s a quick line from the article below – “So taken altogether, 13 different Kenyans broke 2:09 in a single day. How many Americans have done it in history? Six.”

About Me

Tanvir Kazmi

I am a passionate runner and have been blogging about running in India, sharing news and updates, since 2005. This blog is an offshoot of my desire to keep the running community in India aware of any events happening around in India, and in a small way, promote the running culture here.

An interesting incident brought me into the world of running marathons in 2005. As part of a time-management training, an activity was to identify a goal, and define small steps to achieve that goal, all within a defined timeline. Me, and my running mate Vivek selected ‘Running a Marathon‘ as our goal, and the rest they say is history. As a matter of fact, the first event selected, a Noida Half marathon in 2005 was a non-starter, as the event almost did not happen, but the same year saw the first Delhi Half Marathon, and there was no looking back.

This running blog has online presence on Facebook as well, in the form of a Facebook Fan Page. In case you like this blog, you can show your appreciation to the world by becoming a fan on the Run Infinity Fan Page.

In 2007, I started the Delhi Runners Google Group, a discussion forum for discussing anything related to running for runners from Delhi and its satellite towns of Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. Recently, this forum was expanded into a full fledged website DelhiRunners.com which is an online community for runners to discuss running, be part of running groups, write their own blog posts and share experiences.

Delhi Runners also expanded its online presence to Facebook in keeping up with the social networking platform of choice for everyone!
