What about the weather in Hyderabad on the race weekend
The weather in Hyderabad is generally expected to be pleasant, with day temperatures of around 25 to 30 degrees C. However, humidity may be as high as 50-60%. Sudden showers may be expected, and they are usually short. Runners are requested to dress appropriately and ensure they are sufficiently hydrated throughout the course.
Will the event be called off in case of heavy rain
There have been sudden showers during the previous editions of the Run. The event went ahead despite these as they were just cloudbursts. Calling off the event due to unfavourable weather is at the discretion of the organizers. We believe that the well-being of the runners is priority and any weather conditions which necessitate the race being called off will be deliberated thoroughly by the organizers before a decision is taken. There will be no refund of the registration fee in case the race is called off or re-scheduled due to weather or any other acts of God (force majeure clauses) and the decision of the Race Director is final in this regard.
