Important Note on T-Shirts :
The Cool Runners Half Marathon remains amongst the most popular and looked-forward-to running events in the city.

One of the decisions we took for this year’s event was to not provide our ever popular running tees. This was based on feedback from several members of the running community and done primarily in order to reduce participation fees, thus making the event more affordable to the running population.

However, we will be making available a limited number of t-shirts available for purchase at our BIB expo, The T-shirts are attractively priced at just Rs. 150/- each and available on a first-come/first-serve basis. Distribution is limited to one per participant.

As always we count on your enthusiasm and participation to make this year’s event a bigger success than before. Wishing you all the best for Sunday’s Run.
