Venugopalan Arunachalam, senior runner based in Chennai, is no more.

He passed away at around 11.30 AM today (October 22, 2017), an update on the Facebook page of Chennai Runners informed.

A wonderful person to interact with, Outrigger had interviewed him in early 2017.

That article can be accessed on this link:

Venu (that’s how he wished us to address him) last wrote in to the blog’s authors two days ago, on October 20.

In that mail he referred to age catching up and said, “ Time just slips through without me realizing it!’’

Outrigger will miss him and his gentle personality.

Our condolences.
