After a spectacular and much appreciated IITBHM 2017, we are back with IITBHM 2018.
Fitizen India in association with IIT Bombay is organizing IIT Bombay Half Marathon (IITBHM) on August 26, 2018. IITBHM gives you once in a year opportunity to run inside the IIT Powai campus away from the traffic, noise and pollution that are
characteristics of the most of the regular running routes in Mumbai.
IIT Bombay is a small township in itself. Rich in natural flora and fauna, the campus green cover has been maintained and even increased over the years. An island of green in between Mumbai’s concrete jungle, the campus at Powai is spread across 550 acres, nestles among hills and is flanked by the Powai and Vihar lakes. It is special both in terms of its physical beauty and location — a place where you can be away from the busy world, yet still be a part of it.
Here are few highlights of the IIT Bombay Half Marathon (IITBHM) 2018:
