Hyderabad: Over 3,000 people participated in the second edition of 'Inorbit Durgam Cheruvu Run 2022' on Sunday. Out of these, 90 were specially-abled runners who inspired everyone by walking 100 meters on the Durgam Cheruvu cable bridge.

This year's new addition, the 21K run, was flagged off by the Cyberabad commissioner of police, Stephen Raveendra, and the 10K run was flagged off by Jayesh Ranjan, the principal secretary of industries and commerce and Information Technology. The 5K run was flagged off by Arvind Kumar, the special chief secretary MAUD. The marathon for people with disabilities (PwD) was flagged off by Divya Devrajan, the secretary and commissioner for women, child, disabled and senior citizens.

The marathon started from Inorbit Mall on Sunday. It was supported by NGO Nirmaan.Org. The event raised a whopping Rs. 30 lakh that will help people with disabilities develop skills that will make them eligible for employment.

The team at Inorbit mall ensured that all safety measures were adhered to with volunteers putting in their best efforts to maintain COVID-19 standards.

"It is a proud moment for Inorbit mall to host a successful half marathon for the second time and on a larger scale. We would like to thank our partners and government officials for supporting this initiative. Being able to organise this marathon with strict COVID safety measures was a task well done and I would like to give this credit to the Cyberabad police who are also supporting the noble cause of #saynotodrugs which was promoted during the event," said Sharat Belavadi, the centre head of Inorbit Mall.
