This Bride and Groom, Along With Their Wedding Party, Ran 25km to Get Their Marriage Registered!

Here’s something you don’t hear of every day (if ever) – a newly married couple decided to mark their wedding with a 25-km run to the marriage registrar and they were accompanied by their guests as well!

The event took place in Kaloshi village in Maharashtra’s Satara district. Perhaps not so ironically, the region is well known for one of its annual races called Satara Hill Marathon, which is generally dubbed as one of the most difficult courses in India. And now the region will gain fame as the place where Navnath Dighe and his now-wife Poonam ran in along with their guests all decked in track suits and comfy shoes.

The marriage procession looked both festive and ready for a workout. It makes sense for this couple to have literally started their marriage with a marathon because that is how they met. The groom is an avid runner who has completed eight marathons till date.

A member of the Satara Marathon Association, the groom, opened up about why he chose to start his new chapter in a fit way. He said, “I am a fitness freak since childhood. Running has always been my hobby. After the marriage date was fixed, my friends started teasing me. They said that I would tie the knot only after running a marathon. I am against spending exorbitantly on marriages, therefore I decided to go for a simple way. The money that I have saved will be used for a fitness cause.”

It took the wedding party a total of three hours to run to their destination, but we are sure that this couple will be running alongside one another for the rest of their lives.
