10th Auroville Marathon for Land

Program by :

10th edition of Auroville Marathon – Run for the Joy of Runnig was about to end. Crowded with happy, yet tired faces of runners, loudspeakers heard from far announcing the arriving runners….
In between we caught Ananad, one of the core organizers who shared with us some facts and figures – this year was around 400 to 500 more runners than previous year, 3150 registered, and 2800 bibs were picked up; from Auroville 52, and from bioregion 250 runners participated; apart from 20 members of core organizing team also 500 people volunteer for different tasks needed to be look up if marathon should be successful. As Annand mentioned since 3rd Auroville Marathon 5000 to 6000 breakfasts are prepared every year for that occasion .
Design – logo for the T-shirt this year was designed by an Auroville student, and T-shirts are in white, and blue, with the Mother symbol, representing different tasks of volunteers for the marathon.
Out of almost a quarter of Auroville population who volunteered Kalsang shared some impressions, emphasizing that is always a privilege to volunteer at the occasion. Kalsang this year had a group of boys from TCV school who are currently in Auroville as exchange students, and they also shared some impressions.
On the way out, toward Visitor’s Centre three participants share their thoughts on Auroville Marathon, mostly stating that is fresh, and well maintained marathon.

Novelty to this year marathon is the point, that it falls in the month of raising funds to purchase land, which still does not belong to Auroville.
