Mangaluru: National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Alumni Association, hand in hand with the NITK Rotaract Club conducted their second annual beach run for NITK students on January 15 Sunday.
The run focused on and targeted improving health and fitness of today’s young India. It is a growing concern today that the younger generation is completely addicted to digital media and seldom come out of their habitats and take part in social/sporing activities. To create awareness on the importance of health and fitness, the NITK alumni association decided to host the Beach Run initiative for the students.
As per a count as many as 1,075 people, including students and faculty members of NIT-K, took part in a marathon to create awareness on a healthy lifestyle. The marathon was held in three separate formats: 3.3 km, 6 km and 10 km. All three began from the NITK beach gate and ended at the beach.
The NITK alumni association distributed prizes worth Rs 19,000 to the winners of the 10 km category, Rs 14,000 to the winners of the 6 km category and Rs 7000 to the winners of the 3.3 km category. T-shirts were also distributed to those who completed the beach run whereas refreshments were also provided at the end of the marathon to reinvigorate tired runners. The beach run route covered the NITK Beach and the NITK campus.
The marathon came to an end around 9 a.m. when a group of students presented a skit on beach schooling and other social initiatives that students have taken up.
