Surat, Gujarat (Newswire India): At an age when people start planning for their retirement and indulge in leisure activities, Rajiv Sheth, a 54-year-old Surat resident, has achieved an impressive fleet on completing Summit 5.0 Saputara- a 100 mile marathon. He had previously participated in year 2018 and had successfully completed the 161km trail.

Saputara trail is not for the beginners. One of the toughest trails and road running race covering Ahwa and Dang jungles with 15000 feet of elevation on mountainous roads, this particular marathon was indeed more challenging with the unfavourable warm weather conditions. Yet Rajiv Sheth remained steadfast and completed his run. All of this was possible due to his determination and disciplined diet and exercise.

Speaking on his preparation for the marathon, Mr. Sheth said, “Appropriate nutrition, timely diet, appropriate water consumption (3.5 ltrs each day), regular yoga and stretching, upper and lower body workouts, 50-70 kms of running practice per week , daily 8 hrs. of sleep, is what it takes to participate in such tough races. High level of technical fitness is mandatory to perform with proper strategy to be worked out before each race and stay alert to execute during the race.”

Rajiv Sheth found his calling with an aim to contribute to Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s ‘Fit India’ movement. Gujarati’s are generally known for their immense love for food. He wants to set an example, encourage and inspire others to make their health a priority and take up a sport to their wellbeing.

But Sheth was not alone in this journey. He had an excellent support system in his wife Manisha, who stood by his every single kilometre, taking care of his hydration and nutrition. The organizers KC Jain, Ashish Kapadiya and PRAYAS Darshanbhai  and Physio volunteers worked relentlessly by his side to make his run smooth.

This is not the only feather of achievement in Rajiv Sheth’s cap. He has participated in total 83 races which includes 12 ultra-distance races, 13 full marathon and 58 half marathon. He truly is an ambassador of ‘FIT INDIA.’
