Alcis Sports, a cutting-edge Indian performance wear brand, will hold NCR’s first full-fledged family run, Alcis Family Run, on January 27, at Gurugram. The aim of the marathon, which will see more than 1,500 participants take part, is to create awareness about ‘Fitness as a Family Goal’ and ‘Save the Environment,’ said a press statement.
Spearheaded by Coach Ravinder, who is the catalyst behind creating the most revolutionary running environments in India, the run has been designed specifically for families and will have 11 types of running combinations for a team of two. The main aim behind the run is to get families to come out and explore the joy of running together.Keeping a runner’s ‘never say die’ spirit, a solo 10K category has also been included for those who want to run hard and strong.
Presented by R|Elan and Powered by Rajasthan Royals, the Alcis Family Run will also see notable Indian cricketers Manan Vohra and Prashant Chopra from the Jaipur-based team adding to the celebrity quotient to the event. While Manan has represented various teams with distinction in the Indian Premier League in the past, Prashant was a part of the India Under-19 ICC World Cup 2012 winning team.
Roshan Baid, Managing Director, Alcis Sports, said, “We have seen most of the families have only one or sometimes two family members at the maximum who are conscious about fitness. Through this Family Run we want to create a culture where the whole family comes out together, practices together and run together, and create a common fitness goal for themselves.”
“We are using Wonder Tees in the Alcis Family Run which are made out of recycled plastic bottles. Along with fitness, we also want to spread awareness about saving the environment,” he added.
The Wonder Tee by Alcis Sports, which will be worn by all participants in the run, features some of the latest technologies in garment manufacturing. Among them is Alcis Drytech+, which keeps the wearer cool and dry andallows the garment to breathe whilst wicking moisture away from the body; Antistatix, which increases the conductivity of fiber surface and reducing frictional forces through lubrication and Anti Microbial (Anti Odour), which neutralizes body odours and protects from odour causing microbes.
Believing in the motto that running is a happy movement and an inexpensive way to spend time together for families, the Alcis Family Run promises to be a fun-filled yet fulfilling experience for participants. The run will start from the Ambience Mall, Gurugram. 25 specially-abled children from I-Partner India will also take part in the marathon.
