Fauja Singh 101 Today

1 April 2012

fauja_singhThe GGSCF would like to wish Fauja Singh a Happy 101st Birthday. Yesterday, he took part in a ‘Park Run’ (this is a national network of 5km races) which he finished in 38 minutes and 34 seconds. Today on his birthday, his club, “Sikhs in the City”, and teammates aimed for a combined run of 101 laps of the 2km training route in 101 minutes, but surpassed that by running 134 laps between themselves; Fauja Singh ran 5 laps (10km) in 89 minutes. It is true inspiration to many, what positive thinking and regular physical exercise can lead to with Guruji’s grace. God willing, we will see him at the London marathon later this month and the Toronto marathon this October.
