Dr. Ranjani Ramanujam
Ranjani, a medical professional found her beckoning in running a few years back. She did her first 10K way back in 2008 in Procam’s Sunfeast World 10K but being a working professional and a mom of two kept her away from regular running for about 9 years after that. However, the beckoning was too strong, and she got back to running in mid-2016, when she was part of one of the relay teams running from Bangalore to Mysore. This was a turning point, and she never looked back. She has done several HMs and 2 FMs of which the first one was barefoot. She did her first 50K in December 2020, thus qualifying to be an ultra marathoner. She is also into cycling since a couple of years and has done up to 100K. She has been an OFFICIAL PACER in several events conducted by Procam and Life Is Calling: she was part of the TCW10K All Women Pacer Squad for three years in a row (2018, 2019 and 2022). She has also been the EVENT AMBASSADOR for various running events by Life Is Calling. She regularly trains along with Team RUNPHORICS, which is a group of like-minded runners ranging from novices to ultra marathoners and triathletes, in the serene campus of Bangalore University amidst the lush greenery. Her goal is to inspire more and more women to take fitness seriously, and also handhold the newbies so that their interest in running and fitness is sustained and becomes a way of life. Apart from running and cycling, she loves to spend time with her teenage boys, baking and watching movies.
