Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon

Rohit Francis

I Rohit Francis AKA Jack of all trades, a dedicated runner, enjoy cycling, love all kind of sports be it Swimming, Basketball, Volleyball you name any sports, and i must have played that at school or college level. 

After becoming a part of corporate setup & long working hours, I always missed my me time, but things changed drastically in 2015 after loosing my Father due to oesophagus carcinoma. I pledged to keep myself & my family healthy to avoid such mis happenings again in the future

What started as an awareness to keep fit & healthy, soon turned into a passionate affair. Started long distance running in 2015. With zest and perseverance, I managed to complete my first ADHM in 2015 with a timing of 2:16:00. which I think was great considering I only prepared for 8 weeks

Since 2015 I have completed several half marathons (Including 5 ADHM) & full marathons in different cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, NYC improving my timing from 2:16:00 to 1:31:00 in Half Marathon and 3:35:00 in full marathon.

Knowing that running is both solo & group sport, especially being a part of a running group gives you the kind of support, guidance & knowledge you require to understand the various facets of the game. I am an active member of running groups such as “Adidas Runners” and “RunXtreme”.

As a full time professional working as a Technical Architect – IT with IBM India, one of the world’s largest IT Services Provider, I have motivated several colleagues to adapt a healthy lifestyle by adopting run/walk along with other sports activities.

Looking forward to complete assigned 2:05 Pacing Bus with fun & enjoyment all the way along…
