One of the most popular running events in India, the Pinkathon comes to Pune in its multi-city marathon tour. The SBI Pinkathon Pune will be held on November 15 at Pashan. And the registrations are still open at this link.
The Pinkathon is a 10km International Run which is held in different cities, and is only for women. The event aims to encourage women to live healthy and stay fit. The Pinkathon also aims to raise awareness about breast cancer, its causes and its prevention. The Pinkathon, sponsored by SBI, has three categories of races, the 10 K run, the 5 K run, and the 3 K run. Registration fees for each is Rs 655, and you can sign up on the official website here.
Employees from the same company can register as a group. The registration fee is Rs 600 for all participants. The Corporate with the highest registrations, wins the Maximus Registrations trophy of Pinkathon for Ahmedabad. A timing chip for individual and corporate participants can be acquired at an additional cost of Rs. 250.
In addition, the event allows team/group registrations with a team of four women allowed to register. Registration fee is Rs 850 for each of the runners, inclusive of the timing chip. Teams compete in the Team championships where the team with the least collated time, after calculation, would win the grand prize.
While male participants cannot run at the Pinkathon, if a male participant has registered for the run, he could transfer his registration to a female friend or family member instead. So you could actually gift someone a 10K at the Pinkathon.
