Say you’re a foodie. Where would you hang out with like-minded people? Restaurants, food events, flea markets, food meet-ups? – There are so many places, and people. Say you’re a music aficionado. Where would you hang out then? Concerts? Random gigs? Music festivals? If nothing, you’d always have the comfort of your room, listen to your favorite artist on a nifty digital player. But, if you’re a fitness enthusiast, more specifically an Endurance Sports enthusiast, what’d be your go-to place? Gyms? Running or cycling groups? Not only, they offer limited engagement but are restricted and somewhat mundane.

What if you could be part of a community that gives you access to; an expert's pat to pick a new endurance sport and advice on enhancing your performance? A place that serves excellent food thoughtfully designed by fellow endurance athletes; awesome gear for your next run or ride, again curated by experts; or just a cozy space, where you could sit back with interesting folks, including some of the best in the business, right here in Ahmedabad. 42.1 is just that, and a little more!

We look to keep you engaged through: high-quality content, indoor and outdoor workshops, programs, events and meet-ups, Huddle; guidance and access to the right sports paraphernalia, Gear Up; wholesome food and food products, Meal-a-Mile; and some of our impactful community initiatives.
