Udaipur: IIM Udaipur is organising its third edition of annual ‘Udaipur Runs’ at Fateh Sagar Lake on January 12, 2020 at 6 am. This year, Udaipur Runs v3.0 is on the theme of ‘Run with the Jawans’ wherein 200 Jawans will participate in the event. The run will be held in categories under the stretch of 3.5km, 6km, and 8.2km.
The last edition of Udaipur Runs had a footfall of around 2000 people from Udaipur with more than 1200 participating in the run encompassing IIMU’s students. This exponential increase in the footfall made Udaipur Runs the second largest run of Udaipur in just two years.
