Women run with camaraderie

People running for a cause is quite common in Bangalore. But, this event was a little different.

Sunday October 25th saw a misty, breezy morning. It was 7.30 AM, when most Bengaloreans were sleeping there were almost 80 women of all ages, assembled at the start of the run trail in Bellandur, in the outskirts of Bengaluru.

This was the first “Girls on the Run” event in Bangalore, organised by RunnerGirlsIndia (RGI), a group dedicated to empowering women toward a healthy lifestyle, promoting personal fitness, increasing physical activity and emotional health. The run, as the organisers said, was meant to be fun, social and non-competitive.
