The event has five different race categories – World 10k eliete, Open Run (10K), MAJJA Run (5K), Senior Citizens’ Run (4K) and Champions with Disability (4.2K).
Since its inception, one of the most striking features of the TCS World 10K has been its pioneering effort towards philanthropy. The event has raised in excess of INR of 45.16 crores since the first edition in 2008.

But most importantly, the event has truly managed to bring the community together as a collective, a proud collective of hosts. It is this sense of belonging that we invite you to #FeelthePride in our city and call Bengaluru your home with pride.”
