Vasco Sports Club organised the promotional run of the forthcoming 10th edition of Goa River Marathon which will take place on November 17. The theme for the event was ‘Run for Green Goa.’
Around 400 participants took part in the 10 kilometre and 21 kilometre runs. The event witnessed participants from various running clubs in Goa, the Indian Navy and employees of Verna-based companies.
Keeping this year’s theme in mind, the organisers opted for a plastic free event, serving water in paper cups while breakfast was served in plates made from areca nut leaves. Organic plant promoter, Miguel Braganza delivered a talk on planting saplings. Participants were presented with saplings of jamun and pomegranate.
