"Running isn't about the race.
It's about freedom.
It's about liberation.
So throw the worries of the work-week aside, and join us on Sunday morning for a refreshing run through the city of Pune, courtesy of ZEST '18.
From the quiet morning mists weaving through the buildings of Shivajinagar, to the picturesque sights of Pashan, we promise stunning views and a great run.
Exciting prizes to be won, so be sure to bring your friends!
Entry is open to all age groups, in three categories: 3km, 5km, 10km.
So set that alarm for 6:00 a.m, 21st January, 2018!
You don't want to miss this opportunity!
The ZEST'18 Open Marathon is the culmination of the ZEST’18 Team asking themselves one question: "How can we give back to society?"
The answer is “RUN FOR A BETTER TOMORROW”, because, there is nothing stronger than humanity collectively thinking of and working towards a brighter tomorrow. And nothing brings people together like running together in the early morning sun!
Under this profound theme, ZEST’18 is incorporating all the unique aspects of all the noble organizations that have decided to lend us their support.
So come one, and come all.
The ZEST’18 Marathon welcomes you all with open arms.
Let’s run together so our children can laugh together!
