The fifth edition of the 25km race is slated for December 16, coinciding with Vijay Divas and as a salute to the martyrs of the nation, the race encourages the city to come together in celebration of this glorious day.
“I am honoured to be a part of the Tata Steel Kolkata 25K. Running events bring communities together as well as enhance personal growth,” Greg, a five-time world championships, six Pan American title winner, said in a statement.
“This will help motivate, encourage and inspire others to also take up the challenge of running, become active in a healthy and demanding way and achieve their own personal best.”
“I have heard wonderful things about India and I am delighted that my first connection is through an international sporting event like the Tata Steel Kolkata 25K,” he added.
