Mumbai: India’s fitness guru and legendary style icon Milind Soman is all set to embark solo for The Unity Run to celebrate 75th Year of India's Independence. The Unity Run will be flagged off from Mumbai on August 15, 2021, and will end at The Statue of Unity at Sardar Sarovar Dam, Kevadia on 22nd August 2021. Ultraman and barefoot runner, Milind will complete the entire distance of 420 kms in 8 days. Milind will be visiting schools, hospitals and villages en route to spread the message of unity, peace, harmony as well as fitness. Milind Soman has also organized various plantation drives along the way.
Commenting on The Unity Run, yet another power-packed initiative, Milind Soman said, “I am all set for the solo Unity Run on the occasion of the 75th Year of India's Independence and urge my fellow citizens to actively work towards unity, peace and harmony of our country in any way they can. I have always believed in the message of health and fitness for all, even though my participation in long-distance events in the past whether it was triathlons like Ironman and Ultraman, or running from Delhi to Mumbai or Ahmedabad to Mumbai. I believe the country can be united through common goals of running, walking, health and fitness and the thought behind Unity Run is to manifest this very message. I believe that a unified nation is a progressive nation. A country that stays together, prospers & grows together. Every individual has a responsibility to contribute towards the unity & oneness of the country and a responsibility to keep themselves and their families healthy. For me, running helps in maintaining peace and harmony not only with self but also balances my existence with the external environment. I want to encourage everyone to take charge of their life and lead it with utmost consciousness of body and mind. It is not necessary for everyone to run 400km in a week, but at least 5% of that should be a possibility if made a priority. This is how we will make India, a united, harmonious and fit country, exactly how we aspire it to be. I thank all the partners for coming forward to support this novel initiative. Jai Hind!”
Milind Soman will travel on foot through Northern Maharashtra and South Gujarat documenting, on film and social media, the vibrant & must-visit destinations, culture, cuisine, dance forms, and much more. At the culmination of The Unity Run, at the Statue of Unity, Milind will offer a tribute to the original Ironman of India, Sardar Patel. Unity Run is a thoughtful initiative especially when the whole world has been adversely affected due to the pandemic induced by the novel coronavirus. This run by Milind Soman will bring motivation and positivity to the people of India and perhaps be the most talked-about National initiative on social media, with Milind Soman tagging PM Narendra Modi and the leadership of the country. Milind Soman has always been a source of inspiration to many people. This initiative is anticipated to have a similar impact and hundreds are expected to join him along the way.
