minimarathon


Among the vast list of events conducted by the Sports Department of PSG College of Technology, the Mini Marathon is certainly one of the favourites. The PSG Tech Mini Marathon 2016-17 took place on the 12th of March, this year, and it lived up to the expectations of the organizers and the runners. The motto of the run is A run to promote Handloom Sector, Let us use Handloom Products.


This year’s Mini Marathon witnessed the participation of 870 runners that comprised of 480 men and 362 women from the students category and 28 faculties from the staff category. At 7 AM, the principals of both PSG College of Technology and the PSG Polytechnic College; Dean - Student Affairs and the Hostel Warden flagged off the event at the PSG Tech Grounds. The men from the Polytechnic College were flagged off first, followed by the men from PSG Tech. After this, the women and the faculties were flagged off together.


The men had to cover 8 km while the women had to cover 5 km, with the PSG Tech grounds being the starting and the finishing point. Most of the participants were amateur runners without much preparation and their goal was simply to finish. The event also saw plenty of seasoned runners/athletes. Runners understand that success or failure of a marathon race will predominantly be determined by how well they’ve trained. After speaking to a few runners, I learnt that some of them properly planned their nutrition and hydration strategy for this test of endurance. The runners also commented that the route was neat and very well marshalled.


There was a worthy audience as well, to welcome the winners with a massive applause as soon as they touched the finish line. The top finishers were in a different league altogether compared to the other runners, finishing the race way ahead by a hansome margin.


There were plenty of medals and cash prizes for the top runners. 75 medals were given out in each category. The first 25 runners got gold medals, second 25 received silver and the next 25 runners received bronze medals in all the categories. Apart from this, there were cash prizes worth Rs. 17,500 for the top 10 runners in all together.
