Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon on Feb 16, 2014
Running for expression
No longer is the individual uni-dimensional. Running is his expression of forbearance
and a reflection of his conquering spirit.
The Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon (HTHM) annual event allows him to explore his
multi-dimensional personality, helping create better individuals that in turn create
Running for charity
The 2014 HTHM to be held at Hiranandani Estate, Thane, under the aegis of Athletics
Federation of India, has two categories – Half Marathon - 21.097 km and the Green
Run - 7 km.
The race has twin objectives. Firstly the registration fee collected from participants
is donated to a charitable institution doing social work. The amount collected through
registrations during the last race was donated to Ruhi – an NGO associated with
Tata Memorial Hospital who helps in treating cancer in children.
This year we are supporting Mumbai Mobile Creches – an NGO providing shelters to
construction workers children at the construction sites and Jaipur foot (BMVSS),
the world’s largest organization serving the disabled. This NGO provides all its
assistance including artificial limbs, calipers and other aids and appliances totally
free of charges.
The race also takes up a cause in the social sphere every year. This year we have
chosen the cause of our national sport Hockey.
Running for a cause
iRUN for Indian Hockey
Hockey as a sport has a glorious history for our country.
Our national game was once the raison d’etre of national pride. Hockey announced
India’s presence on the world stage with victories at six successive Olympics. That’s
a tally of 8 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze.
But today, we have stopped playing hockey in our schools, colleges, neighborhoods,
streets and playgrounds.
Supporting this cause our aim is to create how so ever small mind share and heart
share for our national sport among people at large. This will encourage everyone
to play our national sport in schools, colleges, neighborhoods, streets
It’s time you helped resurrect the glory of the game. Express your solidarity towards
the cause of reviving Indian hockey; with your hands or chants, or with your feet
at the Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon. The event is our initiative to connect Hockey
to the participants through the Marathon.
Join us at the Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon on Feb 16, 2014.
Come, the finishing line awaits you to rekindle our historic pride.
