    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.
