A total of 1,120 women participated with over 25% being first-timers. The event witnessed participation between 14 years and 76 years of age. The run was organised under three categories – 3kms, 5kms, and 10 kms.

“Most women shy away from taking part in runs due to household responsibilities. You can start running at any time of your life, with any level of fitness. Many women succumb to the perception that they can’t run or that they are not good at running. But, it doesn’t really matter. Running has the power to change lives,” said Arun, an organiser, adding the event will be held annually.
