Suresh Raman - 55 Min

Initially took up running with a motive of shedding the extra baggage of weight that i was carrying around but this soon became an important part of my daily routine as i started enjoying it. Training along with my mentor and brother K Haridasan Nair Sir owner of Runtastics Dilse group who helped me to pursue this further & identify my true potential.

Have done around a dozen Half marathons and almost equal numbers of ultra runs as I feel more than speed, endurance is what gives me the kick in performing well. My longest run being 144 Km in 24 Hours at IDBI Stadium Run Mumbai 2017.
My favourite lines are “The Body achieves what the mind believes”
Wish to now help runners achieve their personal best , so all those who wish to do join my bus
My personal best :-
10 KM : 51 Mins at Chembur Monsoon Run 2017.
21.09 KM : 1: 52 hrs IDBI Mumbai Half Marathon 2017.
42 KM : 4: 00 hrs at VVMM 2016.
100 KM : 13 : 19 hrs at Bangalore Ultra 2017.

Pratik Shetty - 60 Min

Pratik refers to himself as Happy Runner (on his social media profile) because he believes that running makes him happy. The redundant lifestyle of a desk job led him to start running as a hobby, one of the few sports which can be practiced individually. However, he soon realized that running is not an individual sport but a team sport.
During Dasera 2014, he went out for a small fun run of around 4kms mainly because Milind Soman was coming. He completed the run with a lot of walking but something hooked him to running. He hasn’t looked back yet having run his 5k a few weeks later (and earning his first medal) and then going to run 10ks, Half Marathons & even a Marathon. He has so far completed 16 10kms runs, 12 Half Marathons, a couple of 25km runs and 1 Marathon across various timed events. His personal best timing for the Half Marathon distance is 2:00:09 achieved in August 2017 and 52:18 mins for 10 kms achieved in November 2017.
Helping other runners achieve their goals makes him happy. So, he has been a pacer in several running events across Mumbai and it’s suburbs. He has been an official pacer at 11 running events in and around Mumbai so far.
Pratik has studied Chartered Accountancy and works in the accounts and finance department of Highway & Toll Management company in Mumbai for a living. He is currently training for Berlin Marathon in September 2018 for which he has registered.
