Bhubaneswar: To commemorate the valiant deeds and supreme sacrifices made in the service of the nation, Border Security Force is going to organize BSF Half Marathon on 22nd October, 2017 from 0530hrs onwards in major cities of India including Bhubaneswar, the First Smart City of India.
As we all know BSF is not only guarding 6500 kms of Indian Borders as the First line of defence but is also engaged in various Internal Security duties like anti-insurgency, anti-terrorising, anti-Naxal, the conduct of Election, the conduct of Amarnath Yatra and actively participating during Natural calamities. The Hon’ble Home Minister has recently rightly declared that BSF is “First wall of our defence system”.
It is not out of context to mention that the brave soldiers hailing from Odisha have always remained at the forefront while upholding the sanctity of our motherland and fighting with insurgents.
It is appropriate to state that the net proceeds from this event would go to welfare funds maintained for the cause of the families of soldiers, in particular, the Martyrs.
On the occasion of this Half Marathon, BSF is launching a website portal namely www.bsfhalfmarathonodisha.com. This portal contains all the relevant information about the event.
