Founder – Dr Chiro Priyo Mitra
A veterinarian working for the European Union is what he does as a profession, while ultra running and cycling is his passion! A freak accident while running in 2005 him blind in one eye, but that didn’t stop him from returning to the sport 7 years later and within a year to complete his ﬁrst 100km ultra run.
Having completed many endurance cycle rides of 200km, 300km, 400km and 600km one can easily say he has an appetite for distance! And that’s not all, his love for the sport doesn’t just stop at participating as he also organizes numerous well known events from Delhi’s ﬁrst International Triathlon, Cross Country Duathlons, Manali-¬‐Leh cycle expeditions, Brevets under Audax Club Parisien and many more, but there’s more!
Chiro has been awarded the Karamveer Puraskar twice for his work with SHAKTI VAHINI an NGO dealing with Child Rights and Human Trafficking.
