Introduction

Fitness sometimes needs a bit of inspiration and what better, than the community spaces and playing areas at GoodEarth Malhar. From the football freak to the yoga practitioner to the constant runner, we have them all. For many of them it’s a way of life, a religion, as much a daily ritual as eating and sleeping.

Running and Walking

Running & walking

The runner’s credo: “I run because I am. Through rain, darkness, wind, hail. It’s the pounding of feet, the rhythm of the road, the wind in my hair and dawn chasing me down. It’s just me and the road, nature all around, silence and a sojourn”.

The winding trails, paths and lanes at Malhar offer ample opportunity to keep to a steady rhythm. What better way to start a morning or to end the day than having the wind in your hair, a little bit of sun glancing across your shoulders, the song of birds all around, parks, flora and trees that reach up to touch the sky. Many residents form their own groups who then plan out their schedules on a consistent basis. You can catch sight of people running, jogging and walking at different paces across Malhar.
