Bengaluru’s 8th marathon took place on October 21, 2018. A day long event, it began as early as 4am!

Manning the long route and hundreds of participants were Bengaluru’s traffic police, working hard even on a weekend. They stood amidst traffic and pollution, safeguarding the participants and preventing congestion in the city. As a gesture of gratitude, Jhatkaa.org members walked the course of the marathon, distributing anti-air pollution masks to every traffic police office along the route.
