London Olympics bronze medallist MC Mary Kom unveiled the theme for this year’s Midnight Marathon, scheduled for December 10 -- ‘Run for Happy Schools’ -- on Tuesday here.

Mary Kom, appointed as the brand ambassador for the tenth edition said, “I feel extremely proud to be associated with the event. It not only provides a platform for the runners but also creates a sense of social responsibility among people,” she said.

The key events on race day include the full marathon, half marathon, Open 10K run, 5k IT City fun run, Airbus Corporate Relay and Community Relay. A Pet-a-thon -- a mile-long race for dogs -- will also be held on November 27. It will act as a precursor to the Midnight marathon.

The event is expected to have close to 10,000 participants across all races. The online registration fee for the half and full marathon, as well as Open 10k run is Rs 1000 per individual and will close on December 5. For 5k IT city run, the entry fee is Rs 470 and will close on December 9. For details visit www.midnightmarathon.in.
