HDFC BANK UNITE GOA TRAIL RUN: ARAMBOL, SUN 15 DEC 2019

The HDFC Bank Unite Goa Trail Run is off the road and out of the box. Instead of pounding on asphalt, participants will be lightly treading through wild and rugged terrain. They will see nature at its finest, and hear calls of peacocks and cries of lapwings as they race to the finish.

Here's your chance to win a medal and get crowned by a traditional 'Copel' — a beautiful Goan floral wreath.
