Athlete Shadab Baloch began his 355km walk from Karachi to Dadu on Sunday morning to set the new national record in what he believes will take 10 days.
In October, the physical trainer and bodybuilder had bagged the first ‘Kasrat Rai’ award after completing a 327km walk from Lahore to Islamabad in six days.
Now, in this particular journey, Shadab aims to break the national record of ‘Kasrat Rai’ after completing the 355km walk from Karachi to Dadu in 10 days.
Talking to media persons, Baloch said, “Kasrat Rai made the national record of completing the 327km walk from Lahore to Islamabad in 14 days and now I will claim his national record”.
He wishes to dedicate this milestone to the APS martyrs.
Shadab added that during the journey he will preach the youngsters about healthy activities and sports.
The Gulbahar resident began his journey from the Karachi Press Club (KPC) around 10am. The first round of his walk will end at the HA Superhighway.
