The Adani Ahmedabad Marathon, the premier AIIMS-certified run in Ahmedabad, is set to return with its sixth edition on Sunday, 27 November 2022. The run will be flagged off by Dangal Queen Geeta Phogat, freestyle wrestler and winner of India’s first-ever gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games (2010); Rani Rampal, Indian women’s hockey team; Air Marshal Vikram Singh, VSM, Commanding-in-Chief, South-Western Air Command; Major General Mohit Wadhwa, General Officer Commanding; and Race Ambassador Major D P Singh, Kargil War Veteran and India’s first blade runner.
The marathon will expand its mission to support the military services of the country this year by introducing a platform for participants and the public to donate any amount for the welfare of the Indian armed forces.

The funds raised will go to a number of armed forces welfare programmes by the Indian Army and Indian Air Force, and institutions like specialised hospitals and rehabilitation facilities that work to improve the lives of service members who have sustained permanent injuries by providing them with viable livelihood options.
Ahmedabad Marathon is also organising a Bib and Fitness Expo on 25 and 26 November showcasing a wide range of best-in-class fitness brands under one roof.
Pranav Adani, Director, Adani Enterprises said, “We are happy and looking forward to the upcoming season of the Ahmedabad Marathon that gives the city an opportunity to exhibit solidarity towards our soldiers. In just 5 years, the marathon has helped raise more than Rs 2 crore for various armed services welfare initiatives. This year, we aim to raise money for Paraplegic Rehabilitation Center at Kirkee in Pune, a nodal organisation that helps members of our armed forces (Army, Navy and Air Force) who have suffered spinal cord injuries live better.”
Dr Col R K Mukherjee, Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre said, “We are honoured to see so much respect and compassion from our compatriots for the armed forces. The country’s armed forces will become stronger as more people from across the country associate with the #Run4OurSoldiers campaign. I’d want to express my gratitude on behalf of the Indian Armed Forces to everyone.”
Kargil War Veteran Major DP Singh, who is also regarded as India’s first blade runner, will be the race ambassador as more than 1,000 service members of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force will participate in the Adani Ahmedabad Marathon.
“It is heartwarming to see the city of Ahmedabad coming together to make this event nothing short of a festival to promote the welfare of our armed forces. This is the true spirit of Gujarat. Sports bring people together regardless of their differences. I hope this year, as in previous years, people come together to honour the spirit of fitness and our armed forces," said Major D P Singh.
He added, “An army man performs duty to protect people of his country, even sacrificing his life. He never gives up. As responsible citizens, we also have a duty to maintain our environment along with keeping ourselves fit and healthy. All of the running, cycling and other events are contributing to that aim and Adani Ahmedabad Marathon is not just promoting health and fitness, its mission is to run for soldiers. The run is raising funds to improve the lives of service members who have sustained permanent injuries by creating sustainable livelihood options.”
The #Run4OurSoldiers, which supports the nation’s armed forces, made its debut in 2017 and has since become the city’s favourite run, drawing over 15,000 runners every year. The annual race provides citizens with a unique opportunity to participate and run alongside our service members of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force.

Thousands braved freezing temperatures in Mongolia’s capital on Monday to protest alleged corruption in the country’s coal industry and soaring inflation, an AFP journalist said. Protesters are frustrated with the country’s ailing economy, with inflation soaring to 15.2 percent in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “6.4 million tons coal is not registered by Mongolian customs officials but recorded by Chinese customs, since 2013," Dorjhand Togmid, an MP, told a press conference at the parliament in November. Whistleblowers have also alleged that corrupt customs officials did not register coal-loaded trucks as importing goods, but instead as regular passenger vehicles, when they crossed the border to China. Monday’s rally comes a day after several hundred protesters gathered in the capital, the US embassy in Ulaanbaatar said.19 hours ago News18
