This year over 28000 registered participants will start the race from Cubbon Road outside the Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw Parade Ground.

The pre-race venue for all runners is Rajendra Sinhji Army Officers Institute (RSAOI) and the post-race engagements will be held at the Manekshaw Ground, said organisers on Tuesday.

A World Athletic Gold Label Race, the TCS 10K will have competitions across – 10K (Open and Elite), Majja Run, Champions with Disability and the Silvers' Run.

Speaking at the technical press meet, Race Director, Hugh Jones said: "This year's race is using a lot of the same roads, but with a different balance to it. The new start and finish are pretty much on high ground.

"But the course goes out and back a few times, so it will be interesting to see how participants will pace themselves in the final stretch."

For the race day, the organisers have also set up a mini hospital with 30 beds and five medical stations every two kilometers along the route.
