Manipal is a small and isolated student town located in Karnataka, where the world of intellect seamlessly meets lush greenery. Manipal Marathon, which will be held on the 17th of February, 2019, is an annual half marathon taking its runners through the towns of Manipal and Udupi. This is the biggest student organized half marathon in the country and now back with its 3rd edition, we can guarantee it will be better than ever before.
The categories being 3km Fun run, 5km (Timed), 10 km and 21.1km, have been devised in such a way that it appeals to both novices as well as professional athletes.
The theme for this year’s marathon is Mental Health Awareness. Often a stigmatised topic, through Manipal Marathon we aim to open various conversations about the theme.
