Coimbatore Marathon is the largest sporting event in Tamil Nadu 2022 !



The Coimbatore Marathon is the largest sporting event in Coimbatore and the largest in Tamil Nadu, outside of Chennai. Slated to occur in December every year, the event offers a unique global experience to the participants. The marathon is all about bringing together people who are passionate about running; and helping them make a difference by raising awareness on Cancer.

               THE JOURNEY

Coimbatore Marathon embarks on a new era as it enters the 10th year its journey of passion and purpose. From a humble beginning in 2013, the Coimbatore Marathon has become the most sought-after event in the city of Coimbatore and is a favourite of people and brands alike. Over the years, the event has brought together people from all walks of life, developed a spirit of fitness in the community and above all, given a noble cause to run for. The marathon continued to support the fight against Cancer even during the pandemic times through its virtual editions. The Marathon this year is all set to go a notch above, both in participation and experience and continue its legacy of setting new benchmarks.

                             THE CAUSE

The idea for the Coimbatore Marathon germinated in November 2012 to raise general cancer awareness, and to help support various activities of the Coimbatore Cancer Foundation (CCF). Since its first edition, the Coimbatore Marathon has become synonymous with Cancer awareness. The event has raised over 3 crores till 2021 and CCF has been able to provide financial assistance to cancer patients - for surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, investigations, bed charges and rehabilitation and to also, various other projects of CCF such as home-based palliative care. The huge rise in the number of people reached through screening camps, counselling and support groups post the first edition, is a testimony to the continued social commitment of the Coimbatore Marathon.

The Coimbatore Marathon is owned by the Coimbatore Cancer Foundation (CCF) and Coimbatore Runners. The entire proceeds from the Marathon go to CCF. Coimbatore Runners' involvement is purely voluntary. An important role in the design and execution of the event is played by Show Space Events. This trio has been the unified force behind the success of the Coimbatore Marathon.
