The safety of participants is our main concern. Therefore, we do not allow pets, baby strollers, stakeboards or scooters on the 5K and 10K run course.

Can my kids participate?
Yes. Given that Vibha’s vision is to provide a brighter future for underprivileged children, it makes perfect sense to get your children involved. However, parental discretion is advised for distances.

Can I wear headphones while running?
We encourage not to wear headphones becayse part of the running course includes street roads. So if participants have headphones on they would not be able to respond promptly to an emergency vehicle or miss specific race instructions.

Unless the weather conditions threaten the safety of participants, the race is on, rain or shine.

Pledges

What is a Pledge? 
A pledge is an amount that is donated by an individual who wishes to support out cause.

How can I raise pledges? 
TBD.

Are pledges a must? 
No, they are not a must, but pledges are a very important part of the Walk/Run. Pledges constitute a significant portion of the funds raised through the Walk/Run. Pledging is one way of showing you support the cause. Becoming a fundraiser is another – not only are you saying you wish to support the cause , but you also help us spread the word by trying to involve your friends and family.
