Fr. P. Christie S.J., Director, XLRI – Xavier School of Management urged the XL family for maximum participation. He said,” XLRI has been promoting fitness culture through its various sporting events. The virtual marathon Xhaust 2020 will make our XL community start working out again through an external nudge and keep the XL sporting culture alive. The current pandemic has altered the course of our lives. Xhaust 2020 will help get things kick-started right from our homes so we are fit and ready when the time comes to get back to campus and resume classroom sessions. Today’s challenging times present us with an opportunity to build on our endurance and persevere despite the circumstances. As a community, we strive to maintain the undying spirit, and it is expected that participants from across the country would be running in for the event. I urge all the participants to follow social distancing norms while running”.
