An Indian Army sportsperson on Thursday commenced a mission to run 4000 km from Kashmir, in the up north, to Kanyakumari, in the deep south, in 50 days, media reports said.

Velu P started off the long-distance run with the Indian Army proudly flagging off him from Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir. 

He is reportedly planning to run the entire distance by crossing crucial cities like Delhi, Indore, Mumbai, and Bangalore.

Speaking to ANI, Velu said, “I am in the business of running for 15 years. For five years I have been participating for the India team in Ultramarathon, I achieved the Limca record for a 1600 km run the last year. This year I have set a target to get into the Guinness Book of Records by covering 4000 km from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in 50 days. In fact, I want to complete the run in 47 days to 48 days though I have set a target of 50”.

He added, “One of my teammates in the Indian team, LL Meena passed away, to whom I want to dedicate this long-distance run”.
