A run with no fixed routes, no map for reference and an average distance of 7.5 km! That’s the beauty of the YourCityHunt Cause We Run for Cancer where you get clues on your phone, which tell you where your next waypoint is and you figure out the quickest way to get there. When you get to these waypoints a workout awaits to challenge you and your fellow competitors.
Curated by Rustom Warden this route will take you through some lovely spaces in South Mumbai as you explore the city like never before, race against your competitors not just with your speed and endurance but with your brains as well.
The best part is that 40% of your registration fee goes to St. Jude India Childcare Centres, which provide free accommodation and holistic support to children travelling with their parents for treatment of Cancer from villages and small towns to the city.
This cause is selected and championed by Nihad Panju, who at 5 months, was hospitalised and operated on after being diagnosed with Tubercular Meningitis, which left him with a left sided Hemiplegia (partial paralysis caused by brain a injury). He spent the next 15 years of his life overcoming this medical obstacle and today not only leads a normal life, but also runs in support of Cancer and specifically St. Jude India Childcare Centres.
Priced at Rs. 1000 per person, this race will have you visit 5-7 points around South Mumbai. The hunt ends with breakfast where the winners will be announced and rewarded. The race starts at 6:45 am on Sunday 7th of August but all participants are requested to report to Havana at Gordon House by 6:15 AM latest for briefing and registrations.
Please ensure you have the following with you to participate in the race:
1. Phone with browser and Internet connection
2. Workout clothes with pockets/strap to hold your phone
