Mini-Marathon in Chennai

According today's The Hindu, Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) is organizing a mini-marathon this Sunday and the organizers are expecting over 500 people to participate. The Hindu article says the run would start from Elliots Beach, cover a distance of 12 kms and end near Munro Statue. Unfortunately, the article doesn't give information on starting time, how to register etc.,

I tried to find more information on the web and even tried calling TNEB, but to no avail. ChennaiRunners are very much interested in participating but need to know how to register and when to go. Please help us if you know..
