PAT FARMER SET TO BEGIN NEXT ULTRA-MARATHON CHALLENGE:
RUNNING THE LENGTH OF INDIA

South to North
1 man
66 days
4600km

Australia’s ultra-marathon running legend, Pat Farmer AM, will run the length of India, covering 4600km in 60 days.

The Spirit of India Run will begin on 26 January 2016 – a significant date for both countries, marking Australia Day and India Republic Day.

Starting in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu at the most southern point of India, Pat will head north, running an average 80km each day, but it won’t be your usual daily run. Pat will reach Srinagar, Kashmir on 31 March 2016.

Along the way he will run through busy cities, rural towns and coastal villages, stopping to speak with school students, business leaders and community representatives at receptions most evenings.

He will pass through landmark cities such as Mumbai, Surat, Ahmedabad, Udaipur, Ajmer, Jaipur, Agra with its Taj Mahal, New Delhi and Chandigarh.

Pat’s aim is to promote goodwill, friendship and trade between Australia and India, while also highlighting and raising funds for girls’ education in India.

“Young girls grow up to be the mothers of the next generation, they are the first educators to their children and I believe every girl should have access to basic literacy skills as education is the way to change their world and ours,” said Pat.

“My goals are to raise $100,000 to support the education of girls in India through the Nanhi Kali foundation and to showcase this amazing country and its people.

“Our nations have so much in common and we share many traits – this run is about bringing the people of our nations closer together and helping children most in need to change their future.”

The Spirit of India Run has the support of both Australian and Indian Governments.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, The Hon Julie Bishop MP, helped Pat launch the Spirit of India Run.

“I wish Pat all the very best for the Spirit of India Run and support his efforts to highlight the strong people-to-people links between our two countries,” the Minister said.

“I know the people of India will be just as inspired by Pat’s efforts as his fellow Australians are.”
