Kargil International Marathon VR 2020
For the past 6 years KIM has been organized in Kargil to make people realise that Kargil is not just a war memorial but also a beautiful village worth visiting. Now this year we cannot travel because of Covid 19 but we can be there in spirit. So let us join in the virtual Kargil International Marathon and as we run, let us remember ever soldier that laid down his life in these Mountains.
As India celebrates 21 years of victory in the Kargil war, the nation remembers the valour, sacrifice and exemplary courage of our braves who gave up their present for our future. We recount the valour of India's defence forces who fought back from a position of disadvantage to recapture territories occupied by Pakistan.
On this day in 1999, Indian armed forces snatched back one of the most hard-fought victories in history. Sitting on their high vantage points, Pakistan could see Indian Army’s every move, they bombed National Highway 1, Kargil’s only link to rest of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, to block supply lines but Indian troops marched on with aerial support from the Indian Air Force (IAF).
Soon, key positions like Tololing and Tiger Hill were taken back by India and amid international pressure, Pakistan announced the withdrawal of its troops. All Pakistani forces were pushed back by July 26, the day we now know and celebrate as Kargil Vijay Diwas.
