'Fit India Freedom Run' was conceived last year in the wake of COVID-19 Pandemic when social distancing became 'new normal' lifestyle, so as to keep the imperative need of fitness active even while following the social distancing norms. Fit India Freedom Run was launched on the concept of virtual run i.e., it can be run anywhere, anytime! You run a route of your choice, at a time that suits you. Basically, you can run your own race and time your own pace.
