Model-actor Milind Soman is known for various reasons - for winning the Ironman title, for running barefoot, and for running for causes, among other things. In the past, he has participated in marathons to promote breast cancer awareness, and in support of a clean and green environment. Now, the fitness enthusiast, who has said he doesn’t go to a gym, will spread the message of running for good health through a 12-hour marathon ultra run. Over 500 challengers, 2,000 supporters, will run under banner ‘The Mumbai Ultra - 12 Hour Run’ on August 13 from Mumbai mayor’s bungalow at Shivaji Park to Worli Sea face, a 11-km loop both ways, or 5.5-km one way, a press release issued here said.

According to the organisers, Milind will be a part of the marathon. “The body is many things to us, including the machinery with which we perform our various activities. It was designed to walk, run, jump, pull, push, stretch,” said Naveen Hegde, one of the core organisers of The Mumbai Ultra.

Participants will start the run at 5 am and continue till 5 pm. They can run and walk, breaking during the day for mandatory medical check-ups, meals, and click photos as well. Every finisher will be awarded the finisher’s medal.
