We are expecting more than 1500 participants this year. We have given forms to most of the schools in Dibrugarh on Friday. Today we are getting requests to give more forms and this shows the anticipation people have towards this mega event. Due to the pandemic we were not able to organise the Marathon for last two years. Hopefully, we should continue this every year without any intervention. We request everyone’s support & best wishesYuva Varun Agarwalla, Vice President, MYM Dibrugarh Greater
