It may be mentioned here that wanting a sporting event associated with Nagpur gave birth to the Nagpur Walkathon, way back in year 2005. It was an important milestone in the history of Rotary Club of Nagpur which celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in that year.
It was also the Centennial Year of Rotary. Since then,
the thrust has always been
on promoting the benefit of walking in all age groups and making it more festive and participative rather than a competitive one.
Over all it is a fun filled Sunday where the whole family can immerse themselves in the fun, frolic and fiesta that this extravaganza promises for everyone. For further
