Name: Anubhav Karmakar

Profile:Started running in 2013 and got bitten by the racing bug immediately. I spend most of my weekends racing around the country as a competitive cyclist, triathlete and runner. Been lucky enough to finish on the podium on multiple occasions and recently completed Ironman 70.3 in 5 hours 20 mins. Having run both the formats, the Full Marathon and Half Marathon course of AHM in the past couple of years, I can't think of better way to host fellow runners from around the country. I am big fan of elevation gain on the foot as well as the bike and achieved my personal best half marathon timing of 1:30:56 in the 2015 edition of this thrilling event. Looking forward to take you through the ups and downs of my favorite city to finally reach that happy place where dreams come true - THE FINISH LINE.

Race Category: Full Marathon

Target Time: 4:00 Hr

Name: Romil Barthwal

Profile: Delhi Rommel (DR) aka Romil Barthwal isn't just a runner - he is a force of nature. Rommel is a machine, configured to conquer kilometres. He has defied every conventional rule of running. For his first marathon, he realised that he had accidentally registered for the full marathon instead of the half. Despite this glitch, he ran on undaunted. The result was an incredible time of 4:22, that too without training. From that point, he has gone places and clocked 3:28 in SCMM 2013, a staggering improvement of more than 50 mins. His effort was recognized by HR and he was unanimously voted as 'the Runner of the Year' for 2013. Romil is a doting father of two adorable daughters, Aaron n Aranya (who, not surprisingly, also look set to follow his path). But with his boyish looks and ever-smiling face, you may mistake him for a college-going person. He could easily have been the inspiration for Benjamin Button as he has turned back the clock on himself. No distance is too much for him, no time is early for him. Some of his running accomplishments are as follows: Podium at Spirit of Wipro Run 2013 Podium at Half Ironman at Hyderabad Triathlon 2013 Super Randonneur BQ at SCMM 2016, 3:10 h Pacing experience: FM 4:30 PACER at AHM 2013, FM 4:00 PACER at AHM 2014, FM 4:00 PACER at NDM 2016, HM pacer at Pinkathon. Second at Half Ironman, Hyderabad 2013 You can see him running on the streets of Hyderabad, his hydration bag in tow, at any conceivable hour - even at 12 AM or PM. He is a master of multitasking and balances his running with his professional and social life in an amazing way. He is incredibly popular among the running circle of India; every serious runner here has surely heard of Delhi Rommel. AHM 2016 is your chance to bond with him

Race Category: Full Marathon

Target Time: 6:00 Hr

Name: Anuradha Raju Kalidindi

Profile: An adventurous trek to the Everest Base Camp, found Anu awestruck by the tenacity of the marathon runners at the finish line while she found her lungs screeching for breath at that altitude. The thought that took shape was: if they can do the Himalayas , why can I not try the relatively flatter roads of Hyderabad. Thus began her journey into the world of running. She trained and did her first half-marathon in 2008. A couple of half-marathons boosted her confidence and she was all set for a 42km distance. Her first marathon was in 2010 in Pondicherry and there was no turning back after that. She says she discovered her true SELF then. Ever since she has done 29 marathons in different parts of the world Including the Everest Base camp marathon, Leh marathon, Antarctica marathon and ultras of 50km and 75km distances. Year 2013 was very special to her as she did 13 marathons in that year Including an ultra.. Mother of two sons aged 25 and 22...she sees age as no barrier to running. In fact, her husband Vishnu has been a constant source of encouragement. For a person who was not into any kind of fitness before that, she says :"If I can do it, so can you"
