NukeLeeUs Cross-Country Championships: NCCC (pronounced as N Triple C)

Team Event

Contrary to what people think about running, this event is primarily not intended to be an individual but a team sport. Each team will have 8 participants. All runners start together and cover 5 kms. There will be separate teams for women and men.

Integrating Body-Mind

All participants of NCCC will get to participate at iRun NCCC Conclave, where we will have eminent panelists from top institutions talking about role of sports and fitness in professional life.
