After Fauja Singh, it will be the turn of centenarian Dharampalgujar Gudha, a 116-year-old (according to organisers) to prove that advanced age is no deterrent to distance running when he participates in the 3rd Vasai-Virar Mayor's marathon on Sunday.

Hailing from Meerut, UP, Gudha, who got married at the age of 50, began running 20 years ago. He has participated in the Mawana Marathon as well as the Nainital Monsoon & Mountain Marathon.
