The marathon team comprising of one officer and nine soldiers is led by Lt Col Inderjit Singh, a renowned ultra-marathon runner and founder of the ASC Ultra Marathon Team.

The run will culminate at the National War Memorial, New Delhi, on December 8, after paying homage en route at three war memorials in Ambala Cantonment, Sainik School, Kunjpura, and Motilal Nehru Sports School, Rai.
