Promoting to healthy lifestyle is the reason behind the Runners Ruling Club drive to win the mixed team category during the 2018 Island Chill Suva Marathon yesterday.

Led by Sharmila Lata, the group of friends overcame the drizzling weather to get the first prize.

Lata said this was her second year in the race and as a team they have per­formed well.

“I have been running for the past eight years and second time in the Island Chill Marathon,” Lata said.

“The reason why I am running is to promote healthy lifestyle and empower­ing women.

“We also came to know about the Save the Children’s Fund today so this win is dedicated to them. “

Lata, who is a single mother, draws her inspiration from her daughter.

“I also run for my daughter, she en­courages to keep doing what I love and it is good to share this experience with my group of friends.”

Ernst and Young came second and Tri Fiji third.
