Gearing up for the marathon, the champions of fit India danced and stretched to the beats of hip music for over 30 minutes in a fun zumba session with fit India ambassador Aarti Maheshwari.

It was a memorable time for many, who chose Free Press’s Green Run to be their first marathon ever. Even those who had participated in more than 50 marathons couldn’t stop themselves from expressing their wonder and love for Green Run stating how special it is to be with Free Press.
