Rawat is an infantry havaldar of the 6th Kumaon regiment of the Indian Army. His journey began to like the journey of many Indian Olympians that is in the Indian army. His first posting was near the edge of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK). A fear drove love for running was ignited in him when he was posted for three months at the border. The mountain man did most of his youthful running at his parents’ hillside farm chasing stray cattle and animals. When he moved to Pune after spending three months in Kashmir, he started his training in athletics, at the Army Sports Institute. Initially, he pursued middle distance events. He used to train on the track. But it wasn’t long till he realised that he had good endurance, but a terrible speed. In the beginning, he was quite slow. And then, his attention moved to long distance marathon running. He is trained by coach Surinder Singh Bhandari He travelled to Mungyeong, South Korea, in October 2015 to compete in the marathon event of the World Military Games. He practised for that distance just once during a session of training. It was to be his debut official long-distance race. It was there that he booked his Rio berth. It was the ninth best timing on India’s all-time runners’ list.
In 2015, he spent three months at training in Dharamsala, followed by the five-month long national camp at the high-altitude training facility in Ooty, all in preparation for the Mumbai Marathon and then the Olympics. Despite all the hard work and efforts, he failed to make a place among the top ten athletes in the finals but surely made a place in the hearts of Indians.
