GUWAHATI, Oct 20 - The fifth edition of Bajaj Electricals Pinkathon Guwahati-2019 presented by Colors was announced by supermodel-actor and Pinkathon founder Milind Soman in the presence of a distinguished gathering here on Thursday.
This year in Guwahati, the run will be kicked off at the Sonaram High School playground on November 17.
Pinkathon is India�s biggest run for women to encourage and promote fitness and health and create awareness for breast cancer and other issues relating to women�s health. Over 2,75,000 women have so far run in the last eight years across multiple cities.
The online registrations for the multi-category run is open at www.pinkathon.in/guwahati for the 3 km, 5 km and 10-km runs and for the 21-km race category.
As a one-of-a-kind initiative, every single participant at Pinkathon Guwahati-2019 can choose to avail of a free gynaecologist consultation from the organiser�s medical partner GNRC Hospital or a free mammogram if the participant is above 45 years of age.
The mascots were also announced today � Dolly Rajbongshi, a visually-impaired runner, for the 3 km race category; Dr Shilpi Kropi, a baby-wearing mother, for the 5-km run; and Purabi Kalita, a cancer conqueror, for the 10-km category.
�We are very excited to bring Pinkathon to Guwahati for the fifth time. Pinkathon has carved a niche in being more than a marathon. While we conduct Pinkathon once a year in all the key cities, it is now being the seed of change. It is a movement that is carried forward by a growing community of empowered women across India through the year,� Soman said.
