Woods by Stonecraft and Aditya Mehta foundation (AMF), who aids people with disabilities to pursue sports, is organising a Trail Fest at Shamshabad on the 4th of December. One of its kind trail fest begins with a 5k&10krun and 15k cycle ride. The run/ride is organised to commemorate theWorld Disable Day.
This trail fest is one-of-its-kind, where the participants run or cycle through the world’s largest Miyawaki forest located in Hyderabad. Participants can enjoy the open air and the joy of connecting to the earth.
Woods @ Shamshabad, noted as the world’s largest Miyawaki forest that spreadseighteen acres is in Kavaguda, is where the trail fest is being hosted. The event is designed in a way that participants will not just get to see the forest, but experience the clean unpolluted air. The event begins at 7:00 am and is planned to be a day-long event that includes a lot of fun and engaging activities like paintball, target shooting etc. There will also be stalls with scrumptious and healthy food and beverages that one can savour from.
The event is planned on the lines of morning to dusk for families to spend quality time amidst nature. There will be performances by live bands like Best Kept Secret.
Talking about the event Kirthi Chilukuri, Managing Director at Stonecraft says “the forest we built is something that everyone must see. The run is an attempt to do that. We want more and more people to experience what greenery around us can do and get inspired. The trail run is carefully designed so that even beginners can finish it.”
Woods is built on 60 acres that encompasses the eighteen acre Miyawaki Forest that took the team two years to build. Running on the Soil/Earth is proved to be better than running on tar/concrete roads. The founders at Woods also wanted to pay tribute to the soil through this run. “Due to the fast-paced life today, we have almost lost touch with nature. So, this is one way to reclaim that connection with nature,” added Kirthi.
