New Delhi: Chief of Air Staff, Indian Air Force (IAF), Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria, felicitated a team of 25 Air Warriors at Air Force Station, New Delhi, yesterday for a unique achievement – a running expedition from Kargil to Kohima, aptly named the ‘K2K Ultra Marathon – Glory Run’. The event commemorating the 20th year of Kargil Victory was flagged off from the Kargil War Memorial at Drass on 21 September.
The Air Warriors undertook the challenging task of carrying the ‘Glory Torch’ through 4,500 km, averaging 100 km on the road per day for 45 days, passing through mountains and plains, traversing densely populated cities and wilderness enroute, and culminating on 6 November at Kohima, Nagaland. The expedition also saw the Air Warriors break the mental barriers of age and gender, and spread awareness on pedestrian safety and the Fit India Movement.
