Our Aid station partner, Marina Runnerz, is a running group formed by a group of committed and enthusiastic runners, fresh from their success at Dream Runners Half Marathon 2014.  The group comprises runners from different backgrounds, age groups and professions and is presently coached by a professional trainer and two in-house coaches. The group  meets twice every week on Tuesdays & Fridays for their coaching near light house on Marina beach and various grounds with race track facilities in Chennai.  The members of the group go on a long run atleast once a week and frequently to more exotic and challenging places in and around Chennai city.  Cross training and Yoga is also part of their  training.  The aim of the group is to train the members to be a better long distance runner and to run without major injuries common to runners.  This is perhaps the only running group in the city which e-publishes its newsletter every month and which also distributes various literature on running to its members.  With a lot of camaraderie the group’s motto is to run with fun.  The group has already established its name with some strong finishes in various marathon events such as DRHM, Chennai trail marathon, TWCM, Cool runners half marathon and Auro 2015.   Here is a running group which is surely on course for a long run !!!

From a meager 3 to a thousand runners – how did this journey unfold?  Just by doing more, and running more – besides having a strong sense of identity, being inclusive, being flexible without any rigid rules based approach, by working hard while having fun – and most importantly putting the sport on the spot light. Just like the Banyan tree, Chennai Runners growth philosophy has been on the basis of how dense the outgrowth is rather than how powerful the central trunk is.

At Anna Nagar Dreamers (AND), we believe running is an integral and non-negotiable part of each of our lives. Hence our motto, “AND we run”. We came together as a group that was inspired by Dream Runners as a part of their training program for DRHM 2015. We were mentored by a set of wonderful people from Marina Runnerz. We are based at Bougainvilla Park, Anna Nagar and train together under a professional coach on every Wednesday and Saturday. While some of our runners have participated in many events from DRHM 2013, TWCM 2014 to runs as recent as AHM 2015, we are largely a group of relatively new runners who’ve been smitten by the running bug. With the kind of rigor and diligence that we have been putting into our training, its a matter of time before we create an impact and carve a niche for ourselves in this delightful world of running.
