The Wipro Chennai Marathon
Date(s) - 08/01
The annual Wipro Chennai Marathon, which is originally scheduled to be held on December 11, has been postponed as a mark of respect to the late AIADMK Chief and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. New Date will be announced soon
The Wipro Chennai Marathon will host 3 race categories – The full marathon (42.195 Km), half marathon (21.1 Km) and the ever popular 10K (10 Km) race. All 3 events have the same registration fee and all runners will be given a goody bag with a running T-shirt, running bib (with timing chip), finisher’s medal and a breakfast tuck box.
FULL MARATHON (42.195 KM)
The flagship race of the event will be run on a TNAA certified course which will take you through both vintage Madras and modern Chennai. Expect a flat, speedy route and an early start (4 AM) in a month when the city’s much maligned weather is at its mildest. In the 2015 edition, the full marathon drew 938 runners.
HALF MARATHON (21.1 KM)
The happy middle ground for runners who have run multiple 10Ks already but are still some time away from planning a full marathon. The Half Marathon event drew 4624 runners in 2015. The race route will be TNAA certified and take runners past many of the sights and sounds which the full marathoners enjoy.
10K (10 KM)
The ever popular 10K event was a runaway success in 2015 attracting more than 10248 runners. Expect to see thousands of enthusiastic, excited, first time runners across age categories rub shoulders with focused, super fast, experienced athletes at the start line. If you’ve never run before, this should be your go-to event of the year.
