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 our region.
Starting with with 117 participants in two categories in 1998, the annual event has grown to 600+ 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!
