by EVENTFAQS Bureau Entertainment | September 7, 2018 | News
Wizcraft executed the 8th edition of Airtel Hyderabad Marathon, the second largest and the toughest marathon in India. Wizcraft International produced this event on a turnkey basis, managing various events including the 2-day expo, 5k, 10k, half and full marathon runs. The mandate encompassed detailed planning of the start and the finish points, route management, logistics and aid. Setup by the Hyderabad Runners Society, this edition of the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon has been certified by AIIMS and has witnessed a record participation of 22,500 runners.
The different chapters of the marathon took place from August 24 - 26 at various venues in and around Hitex, Hyderabad.
Speaking exclusively to EVENTFAQS, sources at Wizcraft mentioned it was a daunting task to simultaneously manage 3 locations and the entire route to the finish point. Setting up aid stations on time and crowd management of around 25000 people was another major challenge. Since a lot of branding was along the route, careful planning was needed to avoid reprinting of branding. However, Team Wizcraft lived up to the challenge and executed the marathon flawlessly.
Multiple entertainment stages were setup on the marathon route for various bands and DJs to perform and encourage the runners.
Abhijeet Madnurkar, Race Director AHM 2018, remarked, "On behalf of the Hyderabad Runners Society, we'd like to thank Team Wizcraft for being such incredible partners. This 8th Edition of the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon was a landmark event and a grand success based on all parameters, from participation to visibility to runners feedback. Looking forward to working with you once again!"
Andre Timmins, Director, Wizcraft commented, “We are proud to be associated with Airtel Hyderabad Marathon for the second consecutive year. It’s the second biggest marathon in the country and going by the record turnout this year, we believe it will soon rival the largest in the country. We do look forward to our continued association with Airtel Hyderabad Marathon and the Hyderabad Runners Society.”
Gautam Rao, General Manager, Wizcraft Hyderabad added, “Airtel Hyderabad Marathon is one of the toughest routes in the country. While 22,500 runners ran the marathon this year, our team ran multiple marathon sessions during the leadup to ensure that the entire event progressed as per our plan. Executing an event of this magnitude is highly demanding and we are proud to have crossed the finish line without breaking sweat. Each member in our team went an extra mile to make the event a huge success.”
