Yashoda Heart Marathon 2021
(20th to 29th September)
Yashoda Virtual Heart Marathon is Back! Bigger and better than the previous year to celebrate this year’s World Heart Day. After last year’s success story, which saw participants from over 40 cities, with the youngest participant aged 10 years to the oldest aged 67 years, taking up the challenge, we had to come back with something even more exciting this time around.
And therefore, this year, we bring to you more activities, more challenges and more opportunities to test your mettle.
What is a Virtual Marathon?
Virtual Marathon, unlike a normal marathon, can be done at a location of your choosing, at a pace of your choosing, day or night, home or park, on the stairs or on your terrace.
