The marathon kicked off from the Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences Hospital (JNIMS) gate, passed through Imphal city and ended at the head office of Sky Hospital at the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) road.

Volunteers showed their enthusiasm in raising awareness about heart ailment cures.
