About Mutthu Marathon:
Mutthu Marathon started by Konganapuram Foundation and Konganapuram Sports Club as a state level event in honour of our courageous ancestors. Starting with 117 participants in two categories in 1998, the annual event has grown to 1300+ participants in recent years. Full-marathon (42.2 KM) was introduced on our 13th year in 2010, with corporate sponsorship from Swelect Energy Systems Ltd. (formerly Numeric Power Systems Ltd.), Chennai.
Ducen IT, Chennai, is the proud sponso of the half-marathon (21.1 KM) race. It's fair to say that Mutthu Marathon has evolved today to become one of the most stimulating events for aspiring young athletes in and around the region!
Mutthu Marathon is unique in terms of encouraging rural sports. Many of the visiting runners in the past have remarked that Mutthu Marathon track offers a very charming experience. Please be aware that Mutthu Marathon, set on country roads on a hilly terrain, offers one of toughest full-marathon tracks in the world even for veteran runners. In spite of Winter season, the temperature could get very warm especially for the full and half-marathon runners.
