Spirit of India Run

Spirit of India RunThe ‘Spirit of India Run’ is a unique initiative by Mr. Pat Farmer, an Australian world record holder in long distance and endurance running, to run the length of India. Supported by the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of External Affairs, and the Mahindra Foundation, Pat will run from the southern-most point of India in Kanyakumari, along the west coast to Srinagar in the north, covering a distance of over 4600 km in 60 days. The run will be launched on 26th of January, a day celebrated as Republic Day in India and Australia Day in the island nation.

The run is a one of a kind public diplomacy initiative intended to promote India-Australia relations, and raise money for the education of the girl child. It is expected to promote goodwill, friendship and trade between the two countries.

As Pat runs through cities, towns and villages, stopping to interact with the local community, he will witness India’s immense diversity, natural beauty and vibrant culture – capturing in two short months, the ‘Spirit of India.'
