What makes the Auroville Marathon so unique?

The Auroville Marathon is like no other marathon! Watch the video to find out why!

An annual event, the Auroville Marathon occupies an important place in Auroville and Pondicherry’s calendar of events. The marathon has been held successfully for over a decade now.

The course of the marathon winds itself through the City of Dawn – across forest trails and diverse terrain.  The 10k run is quite popular too. Participants come from all over India to test their mettle.

The marathon celebrates the joy of running – it is not a timed run and there are no prizes. All finishers are considered as winners.

As you run through the shaded trails, the Auroville community cheers you on and a massive team of volunteers are there to run the event smoothly.
