He discovered running at the age of 40 as his fitness mantra. He is running for over 8 years now and has participated in 38 Half Marathons, 5 Full Marathon, and 10 Trail/Ultra Runs. In the year 2016, he did a self-supported run of 7 half marathon distance over 7 consecutive days in support of underprivileged athletes. And followed that up in the year 2017 as well and reached out to nearly 2000 athletes.
Tarun has a tremendous mentoring skill and he had been a pacer for many races as well. He co-founded a running group by the name of RunXtreme in March’ 2015 and have been spearheading its meteoric journey. At present they have a member base of over 4000 runners across Delhi NCR.In his words: As an individual, I bring tremendous value to the group ‘RunXtreme’ by creating a happy cohesive and growing environment for all the participants. As a part of the group we not only encourage running but also create social awareness. We have organized Blood Donation Camps, supported underprivileged athletes and this year at Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2018, we raised funds as a Gold Fund Raiser for Naz Foundation. It’s my belief that running is the tool for not only physical well being but mental and spiritual as well.
With these noble thoughts and running spirit on the top Tarun is all set to join and mentor our runners on 16th December in “Cairn Pink City Half Marathon”.
