‘The Great India Run’ ropes in bookmyshow.com to manage registrations

New Delhi; July  8th 2016:  India’s first ever multi-city marathon event ‘The Great India Run’ has roped in ticketing giants bookmyshow.com to help manage the registrations for the event. The event which is conceptualised by ProSportify in association technology start-up Mobiefit has been receiving an overwhelming response all across the six states that fall on its route. The 1480 km long running event starts on the 17th July 2016 from New Delhi and Ghaziabad simultaneously and passes through Gurugram, Jaipur, Ahmedabad culminating on the 6th August 2016 at Mumbai. The overwhelming response that the event has received compelled ProSportify to add  a special pit stop in Silvassa which will be only covered by celebrity runner Milind Soman and a few local runners.
