Security Amar Singh, took part in the Big Walk at the National Stadium in 2002, will be making a return to the annual run which will kick off from the National Stadium on Nov 26.

“It was wonderful to take part in the Big Walk among so many people at the National Stadium in 2002. When I learnt that the Big Walk has returned to the National Stadium this year, I signed up, and I am trying to persuade friends to join me,” the 67-year old was featured in The New Paper.

The National Stadium was the venue of the Big Walk from 1991 to 2006, after which the event was held at other spots. This year, the National Steps Challenge The New Paper Big Walk 2017 will be flagged off from the Sports Hub, where the new National Stadium is, the newspaper added.

Amar said: “I also love running and jogging. When you are doing these exercises, you can see the scenery and make new friends too.
