Young Men's Association better known as YMA has organized a 5000 meters race for people above 12 years of age. This year it is the 65th year of this great event. The race was started from Konnagar Bata and ended at Uttarpara. The enthusiasm among the spectators who gathered beside the G.T Road was something very encouraging to see. There were people of all age groups so early in the winter morning and continuously shouting to encourage the contestants.

After the hard fought race the winner was Hafizul Mondal of Garia. He is a trained runner and this thinly built athlete was instrumental through out the race. He got the winner's trophy and a cash prize of Rs. 2000/- . The second place goes to Mr. Ranjit Chowah of Kanchrapara. He has got a trophy and cash prize of Rs. 1500/-. Third place went to Mr. Shinur Molla of Habra. He has got a trophy and a cash prize of Rs. 1000/-.

The event has many distinguished guests present. The nonagenarian famous philanthropist, Sri Kashinath Chatterjee was felicitated by the members of "Obokash", an all women club of Uttarpara. Sri Kashinath Chatterjee was also a founder member of Uttarpara Obokash. Sri Tulsidas Balaram was also one of the guests along with local cousillor Sri Subrata Mukherjee. Mr. Balaram gave an inspirational speech for the young contestants present at the race. He pointed out the lack of love for the sports among the sportsman today and he told them how he grew up from a poor family. He sometimes didn't get food but never missed the footbal practice. Though he was a footballer, he doesn't hate the cricket for the sheer publicity it gets. Instead he wants to learn the art of publicity from the cricket officials so that other sports can also be made equally famous among the sports fans.

We wish Young Men's Association all the best for future events. For more details to know about the event click here
