Bengaluru Midnight Marathon is back


          There are a number of Marathons in India, however the Bengaluru midnight marathon has its own charm.
          The participants run along the designated route in the night, with the clouds providing mesmerising support.
          Registration is now open for the Ninth edition of Bengaluru Midnight Marathon.
          As Safe ePayments Motivator, I have mixed feelings about the Bengaluru Midnight Marathon 2015.
          The only minus point is the high transaction fee cost which has to be paid along with the Registration Fees.       
          However, this is minor irritant when compared to the other multiple plus points.


This being a midnight marathon, the actual race day is spread over 2 days.
