Is running a Marathon just a fad or we Indians aspire to be fit and healthyNot long ago, marathon was a event of the west. Over the last 12 years the Indian Marathon scene has evolved rapidly. Now there are Marathon events hosted is many major cities and for various charitable and social causes. We see more and more people enroll and completing 5K,10K half and full marathon. Many runner's groups and formal organisations have bloomed. So, does this mean that the Indian men and women have become more health conscious or it's just a fad to say I too ran a marathon.
Hope the spirit of running a Marathon is not turned into a commercial money spinning event like cricket to IPL.
