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!
