Consulate General of India runs “Running for India” contest!

If you love India and if you love to run, the CGI Sydney have a small and informal contest for the community!

If you participate in the Sydney Running Festival (any of the four runs on 16 September 2012), or in the City2Surf run (12 August 2012) – while wearing a T-shirt with a prominent display of an Indian design/symbol or (even better!) an Indian costume – they will select two winners (one each from Sydney Running Festival and City2Surf) and take them (and their +1s) out for dinner (plus a surprize gift for each winner!).

To participate in the contest, all you need to do is to submit photos of yourself running and crossing the finishing lines at either of these events and point us to your finishing times when the official results are declared. Your photos should clearly show your t-shirt/costume and your running bib, which should correspond to the official results. Don’t forget to “like” their Facebook Page first! Finishing time is not important. That’s all!

CGI will add all the participants’ photos to a “Running for India” album on their Facebook Page. This is an informal contest open to everyone (regardless of citizenship, age, gender or any other criteria) who is running at either of these events. The judging will be (naturally) subjective, but they urge you to be creative with your t-shirt/costume ideas and get your friends to “like” your photos!

Start training, and spread the word!
