Pinkathon is coming to Raipur on 12th November and it’s venue will be at Central Park, New Raipur. It will be a free run, which is exclusively for women of all age groups. It will have three categories in 10 km, 5km and 3 km.
In the run up to Pinkathon Raipur, the Raipur based team of Pinkathon volunteers have come up with weekly preparation activities which include stretching, jogs, runs and nutrition tips so as to make our city’s women folk fit and increase their stamina for them to run and participate in the event.
On every Sunday they’re coming up with events with different interesting themes so as to make the drill fun yet challenging. 3rd September was the first event at Marine Drive which had theme for “Special Friends (Visually and Hearing Impaired) Cause”. Similarly this Sunday (10th Sept), the event was “Run with your Bestie” at NIT Raipur campus, and also Raipur Going Pink has organized Inspire Run at Gandhi Udyan on 17th September.
