• Indpro manager runs marathon – forces colleagues to take stairs

    Marathon Bangalore

    When the Shriram Properties Bengaluru Marathon 2019 was arranged in October, Indpro project manager Marie Wärn ran the 21 km half marathon – and ended up on at 11th position out of 623 women participants! Her finishing time was 1:45:42.

    “Considering the small amount of practice I’ve done the last weeks I’m really happy with my performance”, Marie says.

    She hopes that more women in Bangalore will be attracted to the sport.

    “Only 16% of the participants in this race were women, compared to similar races in Sweden which have 38% women”, she explains.

    And the running community is growing in Bangalore. More races are scheduled and more people are participating.

    “I have seen the growth of the running community during my three years in Bangalore and it feels really good that more people find the joy of running as I do”, Marie says.

    She is passionate about exercise, pointing out how important exercise is for office workers who sit still by their workplace all day.

    “If you don’t find the time to do exercise a few days every week, at least you can do some small changes in your everyday life that makes your body move more regularly. My daily exercise is that I always take the stairs to/from the 6th floor in World Trade Center and force my colleagues to do the same!”, Marie says.
