More than 3,000 people participated in the marathon which started from VUDA park till RK Beach and back.

 

In the cyclathon event over a hundred cyclists cycled the same route. Same was the case with yoga at the beach which was participated by hundreds of people as they performed yoga along the beach.

The list of events turned the beach road into a vibrant and energetic place early morning on Monday.

Sonal Jain, a B.Tech student who participated in the marathon, said, “It is really wonderful that the government has organised so many events on a single day. Looking at the fast pace in which the city was brought back to life due to dedicated efforts of the government officials, individuals and NGOs, there is definitely a cause of celebration in it. My entire family took part in the marathon.”

 

APTDC, General Manager, Bhimashankar Rao, said, “‘Rejuvenating Vizag’ is a celebration of the resilient spirit of Vizagites and of the city's bouncing back to life soon after getting battered by the cyclone Hudhud.”
