Run for Charity

PNTRS’ Samavedana is a Non-Profit Organization established in April 2003 by Dr. Charudutt Apte, a neurosurgeon from Pune. It aims to make tertiary healthcare available to the underprivileged sections of society. This is done through Sahyadri Hospital & its branches in & outside Pune. Samavedana patients are treated free of cost by doctors while the hospital too contributes to the cause by providing concessions.

Many factors set Samavedana apart from other NGOs. It operates with a quick sanction process. After its completion, Samavedana takes complete financial responsibility for the patient without any upper limit. Only a small contribution from the patient is required. Donors also get complete information on how their donations are being utilized including socio-economic & medical details of the case, as well as billing & contribution details.

It carries out various programs that impact more than 3500 lives annually. Some of these are: Giving tertiary aid on a case by case basis, organizing a Gynaec Cancer Screening Program, conducting monthly women health check-ups and promoting skin and organ donations through Sahyadri Hospital’s Skin Bank.

Train with us

Besides conducting running events in a meticulous manner, we pride ourselves in helping each and every runner take larger strides, figuratively and literally, in the art of running. Many aspirants come to us asking for guidance, so we have initiated the following training programs -

Pune Running - Leap of Faith

Running comes naturally to humans and is a wonderful exercise to help you stay physically fit. But then, most of us gave up on this good habit long ago and now desperately yearn to get back to it. Starting from scratch is often a struggle though, for various reasons too boring to run alone, worried about injuries, being unaware of the right technique, diet and so on.

Now here’s a program to help someone start from the absolute basics and overcome all inhibitions and challenges along the way. Leap of Faith implies a belief in achieving something that currently seems beyond one’s reach. Well, that is exactly where the program intends to get you!

The details of the program are available here – http://tinyurl.com/punerunningLeapOfFaith.

Contact Details of the coaches - Vikas Kumar (90490 07523), Sudhindra Haribhat (9767053217), Mahesh Narkar (98224 52962).

PRBM – My First Half (MFH)
PRBM – Sub-2 HM
PRBM – Sub-1 10k

And then the icing on the cake – All these programs are organised by us for FREE! All you have to do is join in the fun!




Who are the organizers of the Pune Running Beyond Myself Charity Walk & Run?

The Pune Running Beyond Myself Charity Walk & Run is organised by Pune Running, a group of fitness enthusiasts in Pune. Most of us run most days of the week. Week end runs are usually long and we usually do them together unless we are out to other running events across the globe. Most of us have run Half and Full Marathons all over India and outside. We run for fitness, most of us are regular folks that have a regular work life with a passion for running.

Whether you’re a first time runner or a seasoned veteran, it’s always important to keep certain pointers in your mind that will help you achieve your best run time and give you that feeling of fulfilment you want.

Look down:
• The shoes and socks you wear are your most crucial piece of equipment. Make sure they are lightweight and provide good support. Most of all ensure you stay away from blisters and sore feet!

Copy the course:
• While doing your practice runs, ensure that the topography is similar to that of the actual course. If you have to run uphill or downhill or both during the event, find the right practice spot for this kind of route.

Stay Hydrated:
• Enquire about how often aid stations and water stations are present at the actual marathon and start drinking at that rate. Drink sports drinks when you need a concentrated burst of energy.

Wear the right clothes:
• Wearing the right running gear will greatly add to your comfort and your ability to focus during the race. Make sure the fabric you wear doesn’t irritate your skin.

Stay Steady:
• During practice, don’t try to up the ante too much even if you’re feeling really good. Increase your pace at a steady rate, so you don’t tire yourself out.

Rehearse your run:
• Four to five days before the marathon, do a marathon pace practice run in the proper event-day attire. This will provide that last bit of conditioning your body needs.

Two Goals do the trick:
• For race day, set two goals. One for the perfect day when you’re feeling in top shape and another for a hot or windy day when you feel the elements are against you. This will help you make the best out of your race day, even in adverse conditions.

• During the last three days before the event, eat carb-rich food like pasta, potatoes, bread, fruit and fruit juice, low-fat milk and yogurt to ensure you keep your energy levels up.

• Do a small warm-up to loosen the muscles and get blood flowing. Don’t go too heavy though, you want to protect that precious store of energy reserves. Motivate yourself: Talking to yourself before and during the run is a great way to keep yourself motivated. Convince yourself to push harder as the rewards will be worth it and make yourself proud.

• At the end of the marathon, the main aim is to be proud of what you’ve achieved. Participating is half the battle. With these techniques and tips, you’ve got the tools to push yourselves further and aim higher! Now, get those running shoes on! What’re you waiting for?
