Arvind Bharathi B N
Arvind is creating a curriculum on campus wellness at Azim Premji University.
He started with teaching long distance running at the campus in 2016 and has
been rewarded with seeing 3 outgoing batches use running as an effective tool to physical
and emotional well-being. He is interested in getting students to enjoy being outdoors and
the aim is to expand the scope of this work to help
the larger university community to find the time to and enjoy being active.
Arvind comes with prior experiences in starting up and running sports organisations based on
community and personal value creation, and letting capitalistic gains be a by-product of this
larger goal. In his stint as head of Runners for Life for 11 years, he helped spearhead
the distance running revolution in India, and hopes to repeat the success by bringing about a wellness revolution among the young.
