Mutthu Marathon

Mutthu_Marathon_Logo

Mutthu Marathon was started by Konganapuram Foundation and Konganapuram Sports Club as a state level event (near Salem, Tamil Nadu) in honour of our courageous ancestors to inspire active, organized, competitive long-distance running among our rural youth. The ultimate vision for this initiative is to help develop a world-class runner for Olympics from the region. Mutthu Marathon takes place every year on the 1st Sunday of January.

Starting with with 117 participants in two categories in 1998, the annual event has grown to 700+ participants in recent years. Full-marathon (42.2 KM) was introduced on our 13th event in 2010, with corporate sponsorship from Numeric Power Systems Ltd., Chennai. It’s fair to say that Mutthu Marathon has evolved today to become one of the most stimulating events for young athletes in the greater area!

Mutthu Marathon is unique in terms of encouraging rural sports. The events include marathon, half marathon, 11K run, 6K run and 8K walk.

Well if you guys could conduct this like the Salem 10 k marathon, with many sponsors, medical aid and electrolytes on the way, I’m sure you will get many participants! Looking forward to this event. I hope the organizers take it seriously because not everyone is an experienced runner.
