Today Airtel Delhi Marathon 2016 witnessed participation of over 34000 runners with sheer determination, motivation and focus on reaching the finish line. For the participants, completion of their run also meant heading towards the ‘Volini Recovery Zone’. This year over 8000 runners recovered at the 8800 sq. ft. Volini Recovery Zone.
The Volini Recovery Zone at the finish line had more than 120 recovery experts including Sports Scientists, Injury Management specialists, Doctors and physiotherapists facilitating instant pain relief and tending to tired muscles. Over 1200 runners received personalised recovery treatment and services like cold towel, ice packs, foot scanners, etc. at the ‘Volini Members Lounge’ which covered 2000 sq. ft. area of the zone.
Commenting on Volini’s association with Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2016, Subodh Marwah, Vice President & Head – Consumer Healthcare, Sun Pharmaceuticals Ltd., said, “We are extremely happy with the tremendous response and participation received at the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon this year. The brand is delighted to share that we helped over 8000 runners recover post the marathon at the ‘Volini Recovery Zone’. With this third time association with the marathon, Volini has further strengthened its position as India’s leading instant pain relieving spray and the first choice for runners as a recovery expert.”
Talking about the importance of recovery at the Volini Recovery Zone, Patrick Sang, the retired Kenyan Olympic and World level long distance runner, said, “If you want to be a successful runner and continue to participate in marathons for long you have to focus on recovery just as much you would on training. If you don’t focus on recovery post race and allow your body to recover then your chances to perform well in future races will be reduced drastically. What Volini is doing at the recovery zone is one of the major components that every runner and sports enthusiast should be conscious of.”
Adding to the importance of recovery Ultra Marathoner and Volini Expert Kieren Dsouza said, “I am thrilled by the opportunity to join Volini at the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon this year as the brand’s Recovery expert. It’s been an amazing experience and I’m glad that I was able to guide and share recovery tips with runners throughout their stage of recovery post the race. Recovery is a very important aspect and shouldn’t be ignored for one to continue to train further. Training and recovery are equally important and it’s not advisable to focus only on training.”
The brand will continue to create awareness about the importance of recovery through the ‘Volini Recovery Program’. All the registered runners & sports enthusiasts enrolled for Volini Recovery Program at www.volini.com will receive recovery tips regularly and will avail the opportunity of exclusively interacting with experts.
