X-ATHON 2020 : The Annual Half-Marathon of XIMB

0

X-ATHON, the annual half-marathon of Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar, is scheduled to be held on 2nd and 3rd January 2021.

An annual event organized by the entrepreneurial minds of XIMB, X-Athon strives to contribute to society in a responsible and wholesome manner. Given the complexity of 2020, we have struggled with our mental and physical well-being. In the same breath, we have also forged innovative solutions in the new normal.

Setting this tone of an inclusive approach to our holistic well-being, the theme for X-Athon is “Mental Wellness: One Stride at a time.” This time, X-Athon has revamped its approach so that participants can run, jog, or walk anywhere and anytime along with their loved ones for a distance of 15 km. In a truly novel perspective, participants can partake in the marathon indoors or/and outdoors (with keeping local lockdown restrictions in mind).

Undeterred by the pandemic, X-Athon has adapted itself to become an online event. Participants’ daily progress will be monitored by the StepSetGo app, which will be installed on their phones to track their total activity during the two-day event. 

With the promise of fun and inculcating a healthy approach to life, X-Athon is a registered event with a minimal amount of Rs. 100 charged per person. All proceeds from the event would be directed towards a social cause, an annual tradition followed by X-Athon.

X-Athon will be concluded with the top 5 participants receiving lucrative rewards worth Rs.5000, along with exciting free goodies and an e-certificate of participation for all the participants. 

As a restless 2020 passes us and we step into a hopeful year ahead, X-Athon aims to inspire the necessity and joy of health and community. In its digital avatar, X-Athon will capture the spirit of resilience and social support, regardless of the trying circumstances humanity faces.
