We will have a relook at the events, fill up the gaps and include missing stories from a common mans perspective. With this event we would like to show our solidarity and pay homage to all those brave soldiers and their families from all over the World who descended on this sacred land of ours. To those who lost their near and dear ones, we intend to provide them an opportunity to come here pay homage and be with their loves ones once again.
This run is expected to be participated by both national and international runners and well-wishers. A large number of State runners will also be taking part.
The run will be conducted in and around Kakching Aerodrome, the erstwhile Pallel Airfield which was very important airfield and one of the only two all-weather airfields constructed in Manipur for the War.
