The world's richest 10K is coming up May 27 in Bengaluru, India

Looking at the success of the Mumbai Marathon and the Delhi Half Marathon, Procam International decided to spread the distance running revolution to the garden city of Bengaluru, India in 2008. Today, the event is the world’s richest 10 Km run and has seen participation from top elite athletes in the world.  Prize money for this year is $188,000 if all bonuses are earned.  This year's sold out race is set for May 27, 2018.   This year's international event ambassador is Mary Pierce.  She is the last French citizen - man or woman - to have won a Singles Title, at the prestigious clay-court Grand Slam - the French Open.   Pierce reached her career high ranking of World #3 in 1995, post her first Grand Slam Singles title - that of the Australian Open in January 1995. Mary had a career that lasted from the early nineties to 2005 until a knee injury forced her to stop.  Mary says this about the TCS World 10K,  "I am excited to be the Ambassador for the upcoming TCS World 10k race..I always enjoyed running, it was a part of my training. It not only builds you physically, but it also improves your health and strengthens your mind."    (05/03/2018) ‚ö°AMP
