Each year, the Calicut Marathon associates itself with a social cause. Through the event and a number of prior lead-ups, it aims to create awareness about the cause. This year’s theme is Better Together - United Despite Distances. It is a shout out to all of us who have successfully supported each other through the pandemic by being helpful, being kind, being compassionate, and Being United.

Calicut Half Marathon continues to associate with Niravu Vengeri Organization.

Any willing individual can volunteer in the lead up events related to the cause or contribute to the associating NGO directly. You can contact us at calicutmarathon@iimk.ac.in for further information on this.



Updates about the lead-up events and the Marathon will be posted on the website, Facebook and Instagram page. Hence, we suggest you to like and follow our Facebook and instagram page for timely updates of the Marathon.
