ANNA NAGAR DREAMERS (AND)
At Annanagar Dreamers (AND), we believe running is an integral and non-negotiable part of each of our lives. Hence our motto, “AND we run”. We came together as a group that was inspired by Dream Runners as a part of their training program for DRHM 2015. We are based at Bougainvilla Park, Anna Nagar and train together under a professional coach on every Tuesday and Friday.
While some of our runners have participated in many events from DRHM
2013, TWCM 2014 to runs as recent as AHM 2015, we are largely a group of relatively new runners who’ve been smitten by the running bug. With the kind of rigor and diligence that we have been putting into our training, its a matter of time before we create an impact and carve a niche for ourselves in this delightful world of running.

Elliots Beach Besant Nagar has been home to a number of landmarks with its long beach and road running alongside being ideal for the walkers and joggers. The Bessie Dreamers are a fun loving bunch of runners who got together post the training provided by Dream Runners in 2014 to continue what they started in 2014. A new batch joined them in 2015 and the energy and verve has continued to grow.
The scenic route and the enthusiasm of the runners have attracted more and more people in the area to take up running and under the guidance of the coach, the Bessie Dreamers have competed in various events across India and have achieved podium finishes. Any given day of the week you can see a group of Bessie Dreamers doing their daily routines at 5AM without fail. The passion to run has brought a social group of vibrant folks together to achieve milestones they only dreamed of.

BOAT CLUB DREAMERS
“One, two, three….” rends through the early morning air, as coach Ganesh makes a motley group of people do their stretches. The aforementioned group, Boat Club Dreamers, is a now familiar sight on every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday sweating it out as early as 4:55am in the streets of Boat Club locality.
Boat Club Dreamers is the latest chapter of the Dream Runners group, a passionate group of runners, committed towards promoting family running. DRHM, an annual event organized by the runners and their family for the runners’ community, typically held in June, can be credited with having sparked the interest in regular running amongst the many enthusiasts in the city. After Bessie, Marina, ECR, BCD is the fourth chapter for the DR group.
Launched on November 5th, 2014, the first session of BCD was well attended by members of the parent group to provide encouragement and support to the novices. A few members spoke about their individual journeys, following which the new members were encouraged to do a slow jog/walk in the main street of Boat club. The chapter is aimed at providing training to running enthusiasts living in and around RA Puram, who had been clamoring for a chapter to help them train for running events.
The sessions are planned for core strengthening, legs strengthening, and improving stamina for longer runs. The members bring their exercise mats and ankle weights for these workouts.
Individually and collectively, the members have evolved into better runners, having conquered 10K milestones in several events since the inception. A few members have also graduated to half marathon at the Auroville event, held in the beginning of the year.
Those interested in joining may please call R Janardhan at 9159442277 or 9597599888 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Breathe in, breathe out…..these words resonate around the 2nd longest beach in the world – where the initial rays of sunlight touches the Chennai shores, the mesmerizing horizon with its varied colours witnessing a bunch of fitness freaks as they work out with their yoga mats, the cool breeze that challenges them as they run along the well laid roads and the sandy beach. This group – the Marina Dreamers – was launched on August 20th 2016 and is a brainchild of the Dream Runners.
And its all about “Fitness with Fun & Family” with seasoned mentors who have been our constant driving force, a coach who expands our limits each day with varied sessions. And it all happens at Marina beach, possibly the most ideal location for fitness training in the city. The meeting point is Kannagi statue (opp. Marina Grounds) at exactly 5 am on all Tuesdays & Saturdays. The passion for fitness and running has helped us to come together as a vibrant group, where laughter & frequent panting, talks on fitness essentials & camaraderie dominate the training sessions. Dreams turn to reality here with each milestone achievement.

The Helios is about to make a grand entry in his Chariot. He is going to cast his glorious shine on the hustle and bustle of OMR and its IT Corridor. The horns are about to blaze and the telecom networks are about to jam. Thousands of OMRians and ECRians, who went to sleep taking their previous days dreams to bed with them are about to repeat the cycle. And yet, more than a handful of those, are about to transform those dreams into reality.
Welcome to “OMR Dreamers”. A quickly growing family of running enthusiasts who chart a miracle day in and day out. A miracle to lace up, step out and start afresh almost everyday, rain or shine. The courage to transcend is a “Dream” that we at OMR Dreamers “Live”. A chapter of Dream Runners since DRHM 2015, our team has grown in size and strength, spreading our tentacles on the width and breadth of OMR and ECR.
Our workouts are designed and delivered by NIS Certified Coaches and Yoga experts. Strength training, Circuit Training, Cross training, Plyometrics, Yogasanas to name a few. Our coaches also help with personal attention to running form, endurance etc. Our group of mentors guide you towards your fitness goals whether it is fitness or competitive targets. Our mentors have the experience of 100K + Ultras, Iron Mans, trail running and many other trail blazing achievements.
A female coach who has won medals for India in South Asian Games, Junior Asian games etc. and has been a professional athlete for 13+ years is also part of our coaching team.
We typically train with the coach two days in a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays) and more often than not an additional third day (Thursday). We run in groups along the scenic ECR highway or in the local neighbourhood on other days. For cross training we mostly do biking along ECR or trail routes around Thiruporur, while some also swim locally. And it is not a surprise when some of us end up in Pondicherry 🙂 in our bikes.
Some sessions are stars and some are stones, but in the end they are all rocks and we build upon them (Chrissie Wellington). Yet, we continue running day after day simply because it is rejuvenating. You can either “Throw in the Towel” or wipe the sweat off of your face. Make the right choice.

It is one of the most beautifully located neighbourhoods of Chennai at the creek of Adyar river overlooking the Theosophical Society on one side and the Bay of Bengal on the other.
With such large untapped population the need for a chapter surfaced. With the initiative and support from the Dream Runners, the culmination of DRHM 2017 gave birth to MRC Dreamers. Now we are a strong running community of 30+ members and growing.
At MRC Dreamers –
Running was a new thing and most of us could not imagine the size and scale of running activity when we started. We started as a fitness group where weight loss and being fit was the aim for most. Now we have come a long way to become running and fitness enthusiasts, who are willing to push limits and overcome challenges to reach our goals without losing the fun. From a humble kilometer, most members have graduated to running 10 km regularly and are working at progressing to the next level.
We train 3 times a week with a competent trainer and run on other days.
