Fr. P. Christie S.J., Director, XLRI - Xavier School of Management encourages XL family for maximum participation. He said" XLRI has been promoting fitness culture through its various sports events. The virtual marathon Xhaust 2020 will make our XL community start working out again through an external nudge and to keep the XL sporting culture alive, this would help them become active again. The current pandemic has altered the course of our lives, hoping to get things kick started right from our homes so we are fit and ready when the time comes to get back on campus and resume session. Today's challenging times present us with an opportunity to build on our endurance and to persevere despite the circumstances. As a team, we strive to maintain the undying spirit and it is expected participants from across the country would be running in for the event. I urge all participants to follow social distancing norms while running".
