Jaipur: Jan 27. 2013

Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid along with pacer S Sreesanth and all-rounder Ashok Menaria on Sunday cheered thousands of runners who participated in the Jaipur Marathon.

“I have been in Jaipur for the last three years and love to attend public events like this. I am very glad about the tie-up between Rajasthan Royals and Jaipur Marathon,” Rahul Dravid said.

“Rajasthan Royals is a sporting team which represents and encourages a healthy and fit lifestyle and we are glad that Jaipur Marathon is the right platform to achieve these goals.

I am thrilled to see the passionate participation from everyone,” he told participants from the Grand Stand.

Rajasthan Royals, who are the Official Fitness Partner of the Jaipur Marathon 2013 for the second consecutive year, had started a campaign called ‘Run with Us’ as part of the Jaipur Marathon on their website and encouraged citizens to run for a healthier Rajasthan.

The chosen 150 young fans participated in the Dream Run wearing Rajasthan Royals T-shirts and represented Royals in the Jaipur Marathon. The top ten finishers amongst them were rewarded with a meet-up session with  Dravid and RR tickets for the Pepsi IPL 2013.

S Sreesanth said: “I am very happy to be here at this grand sporting event – Jaipur Marathon – in the home city of Royals. It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm of participants even on a chilly morning.”

Ashok Maneria wished good luck to all runners and added: “I pray that the best performers get success and recognition in future. We want everyone to be healthy and actively support the Royals at the Pepsi IPL 2013.”

Rajasthan Royals CEO Raghu Iyer thanked the organisers of the Jaipur Marathon for the event and said: “We are very glad to be associated with Jaipur Marathon. We wish all the runners and supporters of Rajasthan Royals the best and seek their support and good wishes for Rajasthan Royals to launch a successful campaign in the Pepsi IPL 2013.”
