New Delhi : We all know running and walking is good for health, but we must know that if it becomes your passion it can even get you a badge of a world record owner. In an attempt to get one of such tags, The Flag Runners Bhatinda virtually organized a special 100-km run.
Captain Vimal Pal took the charge and challenged his group members to attempt it, interestingly six members from CRC (Crossings Runners Club) accepted the challenge and prepared to go for it on Saturday.
The six members, who prefer to be called "Saturday Strugglers", all set for the task, went for it and did it in less than 75% per cent cut off time. Let's find out more about these six guys:
