A Half Marathon, called the Garmin 21K Solemate Run, was organised in Guwahati on Sunday to mark the Valentine’s Day celebration.

The pair could be spouses, siblings, parents, friends or anyone, who could run and the team had to cross the finish line together.

This was the first edition of Garmin Solemate Run.

It was a 21 km run held at the picturesque Panbari area near Chandrapur on the outskirts of the city.

“The running course consisted of some hilly sections with decent elevation and some plain sections as well,” the organisers said.
