The main aim of conducting this Run is to promote fitness among the railway personnel and the public to get rid of obesity, sluggishness, stress, anxiety, and other diseases. The concept behind this run is that “one can run anywhere, anytime, any route, at any pace.” This program is more important given wellbeing to improve immunity in the context of current circumstances.

Tripathi. Officers, staff, and family members participated in the Freedom Run. Similar fitness runs are also being organized by various departments on assigned days throughout this period.
