In this episode, Dr. Sandeep Kate, the founder of Satara Hill Half Marathon speaks with Vikas, the founder of Fitpage, on the evolution of the race and what makes this race so special. This race is known as one of the most sought-after races because of the route profile, race support, community support, and the mountains. Dr. Kate himself is also an accomplished marathoner, finisher of Comrades marathon, and an urdent supporter of a fitter lifestyle.
The objective of this podcast is to highlight how an effort to be fit, that started with one person a decade ago with his own personal journey, has almost become a Movement in the form of this running event that is loved by runners from all parts of the country.
Vikas hosts this weekly podcast and enjoys nerding over exercise physiology, nutrition, and endurance sport in general. He aims to get people to get out and 'move'. When he is not working, he is found running, almost always. He can be found on almost all social media channels but Instagram is preferred @vikas_singhh.
