Mutthu Marathon winner(2009) Sivanandam's inspiring speech!
Welcome to Mutthu Marathon!
Mutthu Marathon is conducted by Mutthu Marathon Organizing Committee, under the guidance of Konganapuram Foundation and Konganapuram Sports Club as a state level event. It was launched in 1998 to honor the courage, physical agility and endurance of our ancestors. Starting with 117 participants in two categories in 1998, the annual event has grown in recent years to include many races and participants from various parts of the world. It's fair to say that Mutthu Marathon has evolved today to become one of the most stimulating events for aspiring young athletes in and around the area! Besides, Mutthu Marathon is believed to be the oldest continuing annual marathon event in Tamil Nadu!!

Mutthu Marathon is unique in terms of encouraging rural sports. Past runners have remarked that Mutthu Marathon track offers a very charming experience. Please be aware that Mutthu Marathon, set on country roads on a hilly terrain, offers one of toughest full-marathon tracks in the world even for veteran runners. In spite of Winter season, the temperature could get very warm especially for the full and half-marathon runners.

Mutthu Marathon names the full-marathon (42.195 KM) race as 'SWELECT 42K', honoring our long-time partner and major sponsor Swelect Energy Systems Ltd. (Formerly Numeric Power Systems Ltd.), Chennai. Half-marathon (21.1 KM) race is named as 'DUCEN 21K' to honor another major supporter, Ducen IT Pvt. Ltd., Chennai. '11K Run' race is named as 'KMC 11K', honorning our sponsor, Karthic Medical Center, Idappadi, and the '6K Run' race is named as 'KISSFLOW 6K' to honor our sponsor, Kissflow Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Chennai.
