The Run was flagged off by Shri Anil Potdar from Chennamma Circle.

The skaters were leading the run with the very young skaters setting an example. After them were the veterans above 60 who have run many marathons.

Many corporates had also sent in their teams for the run. In all it was a successful run to make a beginning.
