Jointly organised by SAFRA and the Army, this year’s SSBR & AHM will see a larger proportion of NSman registrants choosing to run the longer distance of 21km. Out of the 14,000 NSmen who have registered for the event till date, 65% or over 9,100 of them will be running in the 21km AHM. This is an encouraging increase as compared to last year when 60% of 16,800 NSman registrants joined the category.
