The fourth edition of the Bengaluru Marathon, held on Sunday, 15 October, was a charismatic event. And it had everything – drama, camaraderie and heroism.

The Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru looked like a giant cauldron, with over 14,000 participants present at the event.

The mega-sporting event turned out to be an extravagant show, with drummers playing at the entrance, colourful banners at every corner, and the DJ spinning everybody to his upbeat music!

The atmosphere kept the participants up and running.

The stadium was abuzz with activity. While volunteers stood near the finish line with shiny medals, physiotherapists occupied the space behind the podium to help the athletes in pain.  

Delicious breakfast was arranged for all the participants, and the organisers ensured the use of eco-friendly cutlery for the same.
