A saree has the ability to transform from casual to formal and be comfortable and stylish at the same time! It is a liberating outfit. Running in a saree is a tribute to women who take up modern roles and still have the courage to uphold traditions and culture. If the women wear heavy fabrics and loosely tied sarees, then running gets difficult and they won’t enjoy it.
While training women and underprivileged children for overall fitness throughout the year, the only clothing some of them had was a kurta or saree, so we switched to Indian outfits and chappals ourselves during these training sessions. That’s why when we conduct saree training runs for Guide Runners India, we guide and train the women well in advance.
