Mayor Marathon : Dedicated to the Most Loved & Truely Respected Mayor (Shri Rajivji Patil) Fondly called as 'Nana'.
a) Promoting new talents
b) Focused on two social cause being ‘Save Girl Child’ and ‘No Pollution, Balancing Nature and Environment’.
The second year of healthy run bought some new talents and concepts to marathon, Right from Kids running on wide road, Senior citizen run, this year their was a beautiful fancy marathon concept that has lots of locals walking and running in various attires in group, 3 of the major groups that were seen were a college group promoting ‘Nari Shakti’ (Women Power) and other being ‘Save Nature, Grow Plans, Low Pollution’ and the third one being ‘Stop Girl Child Abortion’. This way the marathon gave quite a boost and awareness when it came to health benefits of running and the social cause covered too.
Small kids in beautiful fancy attires, very old age seniors (women & men) in beautiful sports attire and those coming from far villages in that regular traditional clothes with participant number and other belts were seen in full enthusiastic mood. Cheer leaders from Mulji Mehta school with ‘band baja’ (Musical Instruments) cheering those runners were seen along with water facilities to help those runner cool down and get energized. This was seen all over the run race route.
Ambulance and other first aid facilities were handy.. Makes it a fulproof exemplary marvel
Thanks from a Oblige Citizen !
