Starting off being called as the NITK beach run in its first two years, the NITK Karavali Marathon is an Alumni Association initiate, ably supported by the NITK Students Council and the Rotaract Club – NITK Chapter. The First two editions of the Event created a lot of excitement and enthusiasm within the College community. The overwhelming participation has motivated the organisers to take the event to a much larger scale this year.
The showpiece event of the NITK Karavali Marathon will be the Half Marathon starting from the iconic NITK beach and making its way through the picturesque NH66 – Kanyakumari-Panvel highway. We also have 5K and a 10K run along with the half marathon.
We had an in-house participation of around 1500 in the 2017 Edition of the Run. Throwing the competition open to public in 2018 with a handsome prize-purse, we reasonably expect a turn out of 5000 runners to make this Half-Marathon
Save The Oceans: The NITK Karavali Marathon is not just a run. It is a run that supports a cause that is much bigger than just us. We aim to spread awareness about oceans and help people recognise how important they are for the sustenance of life. We have worked with the TEDx team of NITK on the occasion of TEDx Global Innovation Day to spread awareness about how the oceans are being polluted and what we can do to save them. We hope to spread awareness among the people regarding the consequences of ocean pollution. Join us and support the cause by running with us in the NITK Karavali Marathon, 2019.?Make every meter count.
