Earthquake (BHUKMP) Runners


Earthquake (BHUKMP) Runners

BHUKMP, Hindi for Earthquake. This expands to Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ultra, Kaveri Trail, Mumbai and Puducherry. This group is for people, planning to run 4-5 or all of the above Marathons either half or full, in a running season.

Location Bangalore
Members: 132
Latest Activity: Jun 3

The name of this group was coined by Myself and Shyam during a run in Lalbagh. Shyam was preparing for H2T2 Hyderabad. In 2008 we had two new Marathons introduced Puducherry and Hyderabad. Looking at the existing ones and the two new ones we realized that we can officially do those Marathons in a year and hence the name.

So idea is to form a group where people target to do these 6 marathons in a running season.

Hi Rishikesh, Like to join BHUKMP group and join weekly Saturday run. Could you please let me know weekly run starting point and time of the group. On 8-Mar-14 (Saturday) at 5.30 AM and 6.40 AM, I was waiting in front of  Jewel's De Paragon, but not able to get your group, I might have missed out your people. Could you please let me know how I can connect with you all?
