The Mahatma Nagar ground was a sea of around 18000 people in bright red Nashik Run Tshirts... the colour of 2013 and as the Nashik Run commenced, the 5 km stretch seemed like a red wave going forward to spread the message of fitness and humanity across the city.
The main attraction of this year’s Nashik Run was the participation of celebrity Ms. Bhakti Deshapande who is basically from Nashik and has come to fame with her act in the Marathi serials on the television. Bhakti is a classical dancer, who could not resist from dancing, participated in the warm up dance and dance performances presented by Sameer Bal’s Institute of Dance.
The solidarity and generosity was strikingly visible on the backdrop of the stage and the various lucky draw prizes sponsored. The beneficiaries of the Nashik Run were also seen participating in the Run.
The participation of people from all walks of life can be attributed as the key success factor of the Nashik Run. As also the support of the Government machinery has been instrumental in conducting the Run year on year.

With the motto, "In Aid of a Social Cause", Nashik Run was initiated on January 11, 2003 with synergizing efforts. People from in and around Nasik, participate and run for a single common social cause. It aims in promoting awareness of health as well as fitness around Nasik.
The funds that are collected are directed for causes such as training and educating the mentally challenged, skill center for less able, sheltering women and the old people, care for orphans and many others. The uniqueness of Nashik Run is that not even a single rupee is utilized on demonstrative costs. Last year i.e. in 2011, Nashik Run completed its 9th year successfully and in 2012 Nashik Run celebrats its 10th year of organizing the event.
Millions of Indians are dying their silent deaths without food, shelter, clothing, care, education, money and relief. But how many of us really care to make a difference? Is it because you do not know how YOU can be of help?
