Thursday, May 11, 2017
                 “Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
                      For I would ride with you upon the wind,
                           Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
          And dance upon the mountains like a flame.” -  W B Yeats

Many Congratulations to Raghul from India (Chennai), successfully completing the Ironman (3.8k swim, 180k cycle, 42k run) in Australia in less than 12 hours, securing 385th position among 3000 participants.

CTC Ultra team completed another hill run, covering the beautiful Shevaroy hills in weekends. Around 15 enthusiastic runners ran through the bful hills fully soaked in the lush green surroundings & fresh breeze. What more, they encountered the hailstorm too.

Another group of crazy runners ran 50k from Chennai to Mahabalipuram when the heat was at its peak & the temperature was around 40 degree. It was not a typical run but a test of endurance whether they can run in this heat & humidity. 9 runners well supported by 2 cyclists easily finished this endurance challenge & winning the battle of mind over the body.

The 10*10 running has entered into the 15th series & keep on going strongly. More & more runners are taking up the challenge of daily running leading to healthy lifestyle.
