At an event in New Delhi, Hero Electric, India’s biggest electric brand, today announced the 4th edition of One Race SuperSikh Run to promote Humanitarian Values & the concept of ‘Sewa’. This event was addressed by Arjuna Awardee Boxer Mr. Mandeep Jangra along with the face of the event and Chief inspiration officer, Major DP Singh, Kargil war survivors and India’s first amputee marathoner and Limca Record holder. Founded on four pillars – Sewa, Environment, Learning, Fitness (SELF), the SuperSikh Run is a celebration of humanity and eco-friendly environment. It will take place in New Delhi on 8th December. The SuperSikh Run is a half marathon organized for all participants beyond the feeble barriers of caste, creed, religion, sex, race and the challenges thrown by life. Physically challenged persons and those on wheel chair can also participate.
ONE RACE SuperSikh Run is a Sewa inspired professionally managed Half Marathon event which has had three very successful editions in Delhi in 2018, 2017 and 2016.

This time it will start from IG Indooor Statdium.
To channelize the raw talent of young athletes in India, Hero Electric along with SuperSikh Foundation have initiated the Sub3010KM project. Under this, participants will get the opportunity to prove their mettle with Speed and Endurance by breaking the 30-minute barrier for 10Km run. The winners to break the Sub 30-minute barrier for Men and Sub 35-minute barrier for Women will be awarded with Hero Electric Optima worth over Rs.65,000.
Earlier this month, Hero Electric flagged off the promo run ahead of ONE RACE SuperSikh run on 9th November.
