Community Members Successfully Complete Goa River Marathon 2015

Dimple & Rajiv Mehta

Six Palanpuris – Rajiv & Dimple Mehta, Viral & Nikita Mehta, Sapana Hemant Shah and Chirag Mehta – successfully participated in the 6th edition of the Goa River Marathon 2015 held on December 13 in Goa. The event is organised by Vasco Sports Club, and supported by Skechers.

The event is rated as the most entertaining marathon in India and overall, the 5th Best Marathon in India. No other marathon offers the unique advantage of running in absolute greenery and that too, right next to an unspoilt, unpolluted river. The route is considered to be full of running hills which puts extra strain on the runners and also featured a steep elevation at the 19th kilometer mark till the finish.

Nikita & Viral Mehta

Over 7,000 runners from22 countries competed in the various events held as part of the Marathon including a Full Marathon (42.2 km) that was introduced for the first time; the Half Marathon (21.3 km), and the 10km run, all three in the competetive section; and a 5km Charity Run.

On the day of the event, the weather was hot (around 300c) with 65% humidity making race day conditions fairly challenging.
