Well this is interesting news we caught up on. The Surat Night Marathon organized by Surti Runners was supposed to be happening this Saturday, Feb 10th, but with just about a day to go, the event has been postponed to Feb 25th. And our sources confirmed that this happened due to an upcoming visit by PM Narendra Modi.
It is expected that Modi will be flagging off the event now, on his visit to Gujarat. This would be Modi’s second visit to the state after the assembly elections there in December.
It is also likely that the other Surat Night Marathon (yes, there are two if them), might also get postponed from the current date of Feb 24th.
