About ‘Sofa to 5K’

(The story of how one man – Cheated death, made amazing friends, grew his business and lived happily ever after )
Sofa to 5K is a motivational talk designed to take the average person from the comfort of his Sofa and make him run his first 5 kms. Woven around the inspiring life story of P. Venkatraman it draws from other equally inspiring Indian runners to motivate and educate what it takes for anyone to run the distance. Filled with enough technical depth to answer initial queries, it strikes a healthy balance of injecting enthusiasm and sharing knowledge.
