It was cold at 4 degrees centigrade when the Marathon run was flagged off at 7am sharp. 19 brave souls braved the cold, the mist and the cross country route along the trail to start their 42.2km journey. The run was flagged off by the coach of Indresh Dhiraj who ultimately came 2nd overall and 1st in the womens category. 70 year old Tripat Singh finished in an incredible time of 4:37, as did Anuj Kumar who came 1st at 3:03 in the full marathon. Tarik Khan from Ottowa came in 3rd.
Major DP Singh - the smiling blade runner who is a Kargil war hero came and gave an inspirational and short talk to the runners before taking off to run the 21.1km tough trail run himself. He finished after 7 falls he said - with a characteristic smile. Amazing! Sanyukta Jadhav and Sunita Malik came 1st and 2nd in the womens category.
In the 5km run Arshdeep, Pankaj and Rewati Singh did phenomenally well to come in the 1st 3 positions and in the 10km event, Mohit and Naveen ran at a blistering pace to finish in 44 minutes while Karim Khan also from Ottawa came in 3rd.
Roopak Chadha had a nasty slip and a huge gash at the 13km mark and post medical attention, refused to stop and ultimately finished his full marathon in 6:11. There was so much inspiration provided by so many here, that many at the finish said, when they felt like quitting, they just looked at some of their inspirational fellow runners, and continued.Family members were giving out certificates and handing out medals to the finishers at the finish line, some of the Challenging ONes (amputee runners with Major DP Singh) flagged off the half marathon run and all in all, everyone had an energising and inspirational morning in a scenic and fun running event.
