New Delhi: On day four of the NewsX-Pro Sportify ‘The Great India Run’, an attempt to make a world record, the marathoners covered a distance of 171 kilometers. All the runners were pumped up as they were about to hit the first major leg of their 1480-km long marathon as they inched closer to the ‘Pink City’.
Speaking to NewsX, ultra-marathon runner David Bredo said, “The heat is a problem but I am getting used to the condition. Also Indian food is a challenge to me, it’s just too spicy in India but I am getting used to it.”
“The main reason I am here is because of the run. I have to support the run, I am part of the team and I am a team player and that is my motivation; it’s a great expreience to be here,” said Bredo.
The marathoners began their journey from India Gate in Delhi. Yesterday (July 19) the marathoners covered Haryana and completed 200 kms of the total 1480.
The cross-country run will witness 18 Indian and international runners set a new record for the fastest time, covering a distance of 1,480 kms. On an average, the runners will be running 80 km a day and will most likely be starting at 6 am every morning.
