The event will attract runners across the country in three categories – Half Marathon, The 10K Run, and The Family Run (6 km). The unique race has been introduced to encourage families to come out and run.
The event has applied to work as a qualifier for most of international runs in the world. The course has already been measured and submitted for approval.

“Our attempt is to bring world-class and an inclusive marathon event that Punekars and Indians are proud of. We are confident that the initiative will further fuel the fitness drive across millions of Indian families.”
The event is curated by Dr Jack Daniels, also known as the world’s best running coach, and Ryan Hall, the first American to break the one-hour barrier for a half marathon, is the brand ambassador.
He will be joined by his better half, Sara Hall, another long-distance running superstar and a pan-American gold medallist representing USA.PTI
