"To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping." 

Chinese Proverb 
That's what we want you to do with us. Just keep on stepping. Whether it is in Pune, or Chittoor, Or Gurgaon or the Himalaya or Jaipur or.... Just keep on stepping.
11 years ago when I started running, quite by chance, I did not realize what an impact this simple act of going on stepping would have on me- getting me ever fitter, more positive, more confident and optimistic and more. And as I kept running and meeting other runners in different parts of the world, I started realizing what a wonder drug this simple activity was, and then I started reading about it, and the studies and the busting of myths like running is bad for the knees, and more. And then I switched gears from corporate life to an entrepreneurial one, from the comfort of a big and steady paycheck, to having to earn every pie, because I believed that if we keep on stepping, our lives can be vastly improved - sounds crazy but I have seen thousands of people get transformed, first hand at each of our 100 runs that we have done now across 8 states in the country.

At Running And Living Infotainment we have a goal of making running into a powerful brand engagement platform for marketers of products and services, especially for their premium customers, while we get 200 million people to start running - so come out and keep on stepping with us. We want to make that smile of yours a more permanent fixture and reduce your stress and strengthen your arterial flexibility, and lower your BP and much more.

Tons of runs - all accessible with one link and one click on
Let's get that smile on your face a little bigger, and a little more permanent
We would love to have you join us at one or all of the runs at:
Gurgaon Town and Country Run on Aug 5th
Pune Sinhagad Fort Run on Aug 19th (last minute permissions awaited)

5th Gurgaon Marathon and a Half - where we have 5km runs to a 24 hour run, from morning to afternoon runs to keep the party going

If you are on facebook - join the chatter there at and see loads of photographs of perhaps yourself and some friends and definitely of unknown folks who could become acquaintances and thick friends, as you keep on stepping, in one of our 60 groups across the country or one of our 30 runs across the country, across the year. Welcome to a place where the run never sets and you choose what to do.

Look forward to running into you.

India is Running And Living

Been running around a lot and not had time to click away here - will make up now.

The last 6 months have been hectic as we have yet again expanded the number of runs we are doing,
The bridge on the Rishikesh Running And Living Adventure Half Marathon route

and some of the distances - Corbett had a full marathon, Rishikesh Half Marathon, Himalayan High Altitude marathon, Chittoor Half Marathon, Pune Half Marathon to name a few.
Entrance to Sinhagad at around 9km into the Pune Running And Living Fort Half Marathon route

We now have 30 runs a year across the country across the year and across terrain - would love to have you check out and 60 running groups across the country - join one of them at
Recce of the first leg of the Himalayan Running And Living Marathon       

Exciting times - as we see loads of people traversing the country and sight seeing on the run :-)

But we have only just begun - the road is long, and enjoyable
See you soon
