Amit has always been an avid sports lover since his childhood. He has represented his college in Badminton and used to play it regularly for a few years even after college. But life always has different plans, and he was no exception. After he started working, he could not play any sports, which resulted in him gaining a lot of weight from 70kgs in 2000 to crossing 105kgs in quick time. Such a lifestyle always brings some classic maladies with it and for him it was thyroid and high BP. This is when he decided to take control of his lifestyle. When he first started running, back in 2016, never once did he think that a few years later he would be running the distances he is doing today. What started as a weight loss goal ended up being a journey of discovery for him. In the last 6 years, he has run 20 marathons, 8 ultras which includes back to back comrades marathons and a 100 miler. From struggling even in a 10k and finishing first marathon in just under 6 hours to the personal best of 3:38 and finishing 100 miler in 27 hours, it has been an amazing journey for him. In 2021, he decided to take a shot at coaching and mentoring and this new chapter of his running has been equally satisfying. As learning never stops, he did his UESCA certification in 2022.

Anurag started his journey into sports as a football player. He was a very passionate footballer. There was a time when he used to spend years practising 2 times a day. He represented one of the top clubs in Pune in Super Division and tournaments across Pune.
In the years of 2015 and 2016 his football coach discovered that he is in a good shape of endurance and so suggested he take part in marathons and races, which got him a couple of podium spots and good times for specific distances in the running world.
And so, in 2017 he made the move to completely shift his focus into Running as his primary sport. And that's how his running journey began. He still loves watching football, but since he is investing himself in running twice a day, he doesn’t get time to spare for football.

Mihir started out by going to tuition on cycle during his school days. Slowly, he realised that his body is getting used to cycling and longer distances were coming to him easier than his friends. He decided to take part in a local race, and luckily ended up taking the victory. A couple of more local races gave him confidence to take up racing as a hobby, and he was racing on mountain bikes for some time. Slowly, the transition took place from mountain biking to road cycling, from road cycling to duathlons, and from duathlons to triathlons. Finally, his heart and mind have settled onto the 70.3 distance, and his goal is to unlock his maximum potential for this distance.

At the age of 36, Raina decided to quit her job at an MNC and become a full time Fitness and Nutrition coach. A few years ago, due to her hectic work life and poor lifestyle habits, she
struggled with weight related issues like Hypothyroidism, bad metabolism, unhealthy eating habits etc which all together made her life really miserable.That was when, in 2015, one of her colleagues told her about a running event and she couldn't bring herself to believe that she could run her
first ever 3K race and came back home motivated, satisfied and all uncertainties were vanished. After seeing 75 and 80 years old women running 5K, 10K with so much confidence and vigour. She realised that, If they could, why couldn’t she? And this is how her fitness journey started. Her journey as a runner started in 2015 and she ran many 10K and half marathons (including Ladakh, Amsterdam, Munich) and one Full Marathon & one 12 hours stadium run.
Running has changed her life, her preferences have
changed, whatever she is today, whatever she will be tomorrow, running will definitely be an integral part of it that has a visible impact. Today she is 30kgs lighter than she was in 2015 and way more confident about herself.
She runs because there is always more to learn about her body and mind, and running reveals her weaknesses and turns them into strengths. Running gives her a means to challenge herself everyday to improve. No matter what goal she makes, once she reaches that she will be able to set a new one and push toward that new goal. It’s a never ending process that is both satisfying and rewarding. It makes her feel strong, happy and accomplished. It teaches her that she needs patience and consistency.
For her, running is a chance to connect better with herself and feel like a completely different person, a person who inspires others and above all inspires herself. She says- “It feels amazing when people want to change their lifestyle looking at mine and want to incorporate running into theirs. To be
someone's motivation to be healthy and fit gives me happiness beyond words. Truly believe I am in it for the long run.”
She is passionate and this is what drives her everyday life. She is so grateful for everything fitness and health has given her. Fitness hasn’t only been a way for her to cope up with things but now a way of life too. She look at life differently now and some may take it a fad but for her its forever ❤️

Sarvesh started his journey in
Steeplechase and long jump events in 2013. He also tried his hands at sprinting before he shifted his focus to 3000 and 5000m. He participated in the State Championships but couldn’t secure a medal. He then moved to doing jumps for a while but that resulted in several injuries. At that moment he felt that athletics wasn't meant for him so he came down to Mumbai in search of a job in 2016. But he couldn’t stay away from athletics for long. When he was getting his fitness back he decided to give running one more shot and started training in SAI Kandivali. He juggled between work and training for 5 years before he decided to quit his job and put his entire focus on running. He has since been doing a lot of running races and living on the earnings from the races

Vipul has been running for about 1 years now. His mother passed away when he was only 11 years old, which led him to devote the majority of his time to running. His Grandfather noticed his penchant for running and supported him throughout. His Grandfather also helped Vipul gain knowledge about running and training. His Grandfather had a dream of seeing Vipul winning International marathons like the Olympics, World and Asian Championships, and the Commonwealth Games. That dream now has transformed into Vipul’s dream and that’s what gets him going. He ran his first half marathon in 2016 with a timing of 1:18 and the following year he did his first marathon in 2:45. He has qualified for the 100km World Championships in 2022.
