    I’m wondering why the run4bhumi marathon hasn’t been elucidated significantly enough to garner more participants.
    Perhaps I’ve not stumbled upon the right pages ?

      Hello Vijay, There is no specific Run4Bhumi Marathon. The Mirchi Run in Chennai was to support Bhumi. Bhumi volunteer/supporter can Run for Bhumi at any Marathon.
