    Indian Air Force is conducting its first ever Inter Command Ultra Marathon Competition at Air Force Station Naliya from 14 Feb to 15 Feb 2020. The event is comprised of three categories covering a distance of 75 Kms, 100 Kms & 160 kms respectively. Participants from Air Headquarters, various Commands of IAF and Indian Coast Guard personnel are participating in the event.

    The aim of this expedition is to promote awareness about armed forces and to bring about cohesiveness in the society by propagating the idea of ‘Ek Bharath Shreshtha Bharat’.

The marathon started from Bharat Salt Factory at Jhakau and covered the picturesque terrain of Kutch. The air warriors from Naliya also ran along with participants for a few kilometres to boost their morale. 

    The 75 Kms run culminated in evening on the same day as participants ran with a “never die” attitude.  100 Kms & 160 Kms run will culminate at 0630 hrs and 1830 hrs respectively on 15 Feb 20.
