Cosmopolitan Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) is one of India's most progressive and developed cities, blessed with a benevolent climate and a burgeoning drinking, dining and shopping scene. Yes, its creature comforts are a godsend to the weary traveller who has done the hard yards and it's a great city for mixing with locals in craft beer joints or quirky independent cafes. Though there are no world-class sights, you'll find lovely parks and striking Victorian-era architecture.
The past decade has seen a mad surge of development, coupled with traffic congestion and rising pollution levels. But the central district (dating back to the British Raj years) remains little changed, and the landmark corporate HQs and business parks of the city's booming IT industry are mostly in the outer suburbs.
The main event of the Bengaluru Midnight Marathon, the full marathon is a 42.195 kilometer race in the heart of the city’s famed IT section. Held at midnight under Bengaluru’s gleaming lights, it has evolved into a marathon of international standards within a few short years.
As the name suggests, this is half the distance of the full marathon. Covering a distance of 21 km, it is still a test of the strength and stamina for athletes everywhere.
