The senior citizen's run on Sunday will see the participation of 1,150 elderly, with some looking to represent good health and some eager to mix with other members in the age-group.
"I want to send out a message that it is important to maintain one's health, even in old age. That is why, I have been participating for the last eight years," said 76-year-old Devilal Khandelwal.
For JN Pande, 79, the marathon is an occasion to mix with others his age. "The highlight of the event is that I get to mingle with other people who come to participate. It is thrilling when people cheer for us," said Pande, who stays with his wife in Bandra. Pande has been training for the run with a group of 20 elderly.
