Each year, Calicut Marathon associates itself with a social cause. Through the marathon and a number of prior lead-up event, it aims to create awareness about the cause. This year’s cause is United Kerala. United we stand, Divided we fall. The mitigation process conducted after the outbreak of Nipah virus, a deadly virus that frightened the entire nation and after the August 2018 floods proved to be successful essentially because we dealt with these catastrophes with the spirit of togetherness and with utmost sense of urgency that curbed the issues at their nascent stage.

Based on the cause, this year Calicut Half Marathon is associating 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.
