Fit India Mission converges with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan with Fit India Freedom Run (Plog Run) where fitness meets Swachhata in a form of engaging fun-loving exercise is now entailed in Fit India Freedom Run culminating where we discover a litter free clean surroundings while running.
Fit India Freedom Run was conceived in 2020 when the entire nation started following social distancing in a ‘new normal’ lifestyle, so as to keep the imperative need of fitness active even while following the social distancing norms. The campaign’s objective is to encourage fitness and help us all to get freedom from obesity, laziness, stress, anxiety, diseases etc. The Fit India Freedom Run is yet another endeavour to strengthen the Fit Indian Movement and involve citizens to embrace fitness as a way of life. Participants will be allowed to run at their own place and at their own pace at a time convenient to them during campaign period. The concept behind this run is that “It can be run at anytime and anywhere!
Till date three editions of the campaign have been held in 2020, 2021 and 2023 respectively and the campaign has seen tremendous support from various stakeholders such as government, private organizations and individuals from all walks of life and demographics making it a truly people’s campaign. This year, Fit India Mission has decided to organize the 4th edition i.e. Fit India Swachhata Freedom Run 4.0 from 1st October to 31st October 2023. Citizens will be urged to inculcate 30 minutes of physical fitness in any form, celebrate achievements of active lifestyle and make a resolve to remain fit “Swachh Bharat Swasth Bharat”. The campaign will kick-off with a Swachhata Run (Plog Run) on 1st October 2023 followed by running events for the remainder of the campaign i.e., till 31st October 2023.
