Age is just a Number with Bharat Kapadia
"If I can do it, so can you"... Bharat Kapadia
Bharat is 66 and has run almost 25 half marathons since 2007 and is still going strong.
Bharat's career spans across several media houses in leadership roles and he has won a number of media awards. He spearheaded the Vote for Taj Campaign which resulted in the Taj Mahal making it in the New ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ list. He is Founder of firstname.lastname@example.org and Juhu Marathon.
He is charming and infectiously positive as you are about to discover, and we fondly call him “Bharat bhai”. On this show, Bharat shares what keeps him going, how he has managed to run better every passing year and his role in making the Juhu Marathon happen.
