Walking competition for senior citizens in Gujarat
The seventh Gujarat state senior citizen fast walk competition will be held on the Raj Mahal Road in Vadodara on 1 October 2017.
The competition will be organised in four categories such as participants over 90 years of age can take part in one kilometre walk while those between 81 to 90 years of age can take part in two kilometres' walk.
Participants in the age group between 71 and 80 years will have to walk three kilometres and those between 60 to 70 years will have to walk five kilometres.
The competition has been started by the Senior Citizen State Athletics Association.
The idea is to encourage elderly people to walk faster and longer to reduce their risk of heart-related diseases and other serious health issues.
