Run for Farmers

Rythu Swarajya Vedika (RSV), a collective of various farmer organizations and individuals working on addressing farming crisis, has initiated a campaign, namely RSV RUN FOR FARMERS . Idea behind  runners group is to help runners realize their running milestones while raising funds which would be used for programs that reduces distress in farming communities.

It is a beginner-friendly 5k/10k/marathon/half-marathon training and fund-raising program, under the guidance of our experienced runners and with the support team of dedicated volunteers of Rythu Swarajya Vedika. We train runners for their running goals (full or half marathon) and the runner’s raise donations for Centre for Sustainable Agriculture (CSA) and Gramya Resource Centre for Women, non-profit organizations, whom RSV collaborates with.

Some of the races that we will be running include Airtel Hyderabad Marathon, RSV Village Half Marathon. Both beginner and experienced runners can join us for the group runs with no obligations. Please fill up this form or just drop us an email at
