Linc Tower Run, Goa 2016

LINC TOWER RUN 2016, the third edition of the spectacular race up and down the staircases of five seven-storeyed buildings (totally 840 steps) at Panaji’s business hub, EDC Complex, Patto, will be held on Sunday 31 January 2016, at 8am. It is organized jointly by CII / Yi Goa, and Adventure Breaks, and sponsored by Linc Properties, Tito’s, EDC Ltd, Talwalkar's HiFi, Monginis, Manipal Hospitals, Real Beverages, Zantye's Cashewnuts and Ambrosia Health Foods, among others. 

Participants run up and down the stairs of Gera’s Imperium II, Gera’s Imperium I, Kamat Plaza, Star Bhavan (Bank of India) and Dempo Trade Centre, and then to the finish. 

Individuals run up and down all five buildings. Teams of five members do a relay; each person runs up and down one building and passing the baton to the next. There are three Team categories: Groups, Corporate and Inter-Collegiate. 

Everyone can do this: it's a race up the seven stories of Gera's Imperium II and down again. 

Climbing up stairs is an easy, accessible and effective exercise; it burns three times the calories as a brisk walk. It brings down the incidence of lifestyle ailments like heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure and diabetes, which have already replaced communicable diseases as the No: 1 cause of deaths in India.
