Sandeep Kumar

The mentor of a few races in India and abroad, the Indian speedster and elite ultrarunner has represented India in the 100K World Championship in Croatia, Trail World Championship in Portugal and Changan Ford Ultra 50K China. He was also the fastest Indian at Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa- 2017 & 2018 (90.184km in 07:30hrs), 1st runner up of Evil Trail Croatia, and a 2019 Boston Marathon finisher with timing of 02:55. The winner of many Indian marathons, he grabs podiums almost every weekend, while running at a conversational pace. He is also an IAAF Coach (topped Indian coaches exam), a motivational speaker, and a plant-based athlete. He was felicitated by Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, for his stupendous achievements in sports. A top class guy, he also eats such huge amounts of food that a picky eater would go into a dead faint after seeing his plate. Fun to be with, on the whole.

Fun fact: If he’s with you at a water crossing, he’ll throw you down into the water and dunk you until you scream a few times. Beware.
