While reviewing arrangements for the run at the venue here on Saturday, the minister said the district authorities have made all arrangements, including operating special APSRTC buses from all over the district, for this event.

Every participant would be given a certificate of participation by the Guinness Book officials. "This day would be a day to remember and a proud moment for every Vizag resident as the district administration, along with the Olympic Association, has taken up this huge task of entering into the Guinness Book of World Records," he said.
