Participate in the 'Cigna TTK Treadmillion Challenge' and prove you're Mumbai's fittest
As a thrilling build-up to the 12th edition of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon (SCMM), India’s leading and Mumbai’s most awaited annual sporting and social event, the young and old of the metropolis can participate in the exclusive 10-minute Cigna TTK Treadmillion Challenge - brought to Mumbai by Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM, powered by JBL Sports in association with Jabong, Volini & DHL. The challenge that begins on Friday, December 19, creates the perfect platform for Mumbai’s health conscious to join the fitness movement and make a New Year resolution to keep fit in 2015.
With the Treadmillion Challenge 2014, conceptualized by Procam International and executed by Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM, participants who may or may not be running the SCMM can challenge others to beat their best 10-minute run on a treadmill, which is a combination of distance covered and calories burnt. Spreading over more than 20 days until Saturday, January 10, the Challenge will travel to multiple locations that include 5 corporate houses, 5 Resident Welfare Associations (RWA), 3 joggers parks, 3 malls and path breaking ‘Equal Streets’ movement.
The Challenge engages and encourages working professionals, the youth, homemakers and senior citizens keen on being fit to participate in the event and win a host of exciting prizes. One winner, who burns most calories and covers the maximum distance at each touch point moves forward to battle it out for ultimate glory. Winners face counterparts from other touch points at the SCMM ‘Get Active Expo’ on January 10 at Bandra’s MMRDA Grounds for a mega final. Winners will take home attractive prizes worth INR 5,00,000.
While it encourages Mumbaikars to keep fit, the Cigna TTK Treadmillion Challenge promises to do good to the environment by planting one sapling for every person who runs on the treadmill. The Treadmillion Challenge also goes to ‘Equal Streets’ a movement that seeks to usher in greater democracy in accessing roads as public, rather than private, spaces.
