MUMBAI: Over 4,000 runners from the financial services industry participated in a weekend race at Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) Sunday. The sprint marked the finale of the IL&FS Fun Run which is now in its third year.

Fifteen youngsters joined a separate event for wheelchair-bound children.

Races were held in two categories, one 5km the other 10km. Winners in each category were "felicitated''. Sachin Patil won the open category for men while Jayashri Boragi won the ladies' event. Sunil Shetty led the veteran's category of men while Nina Hamre won among women. Another slot was devised, clumsily called the senior veteran's category, where Ashok Someshwar and Lata Alimchandani were declared winners.

The run was organised in association with Bank of Baroda and Bank of India. It hopes to help "desk-bound executives incorporate fitness into their daily routine".

First held in 2013, the event is gaining popularity, its organisers claim. Around 4,000 running enthusiasts turned out this year, including officials from sponsor banks. Fitness guru Mickey Mehta, who has also been training Mumbai's police officials, partnered with the run.
