IIM, Kozhikode Successfully Organizes Calicut Mini Marathon

The Calicut Mini Marathon, jointly organized by the Social Service Group of IIM Kozhikode, Calicut Management Association and P. T. Usha School of Athletics, took place on Sunday at the Calicut Beach. The theme of this year's marathon was 'Be the Change'.

The aim of the marathon was to bring awareness to the youth of the city about the various issues plaguing today's society and thus sound a clarion call for them to bring in change by being the change themselves. Some of the visiting dignitaries included Mr. K. V. Thomas, Minister of State for Agriculture, Mr. M. K. Raghavan, MP, Dr. P. B. Salim, the Collector of Calicut District, Ms. P. T. Usha, athlete, Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director of IIM Kozhikode, Mr. Jayaram, actor, Mr. Mammukhoya, actor among several other noted personalities

The marathon brought together over 8500 people in and around Calicut, of who about 6500 participated in the 10 km and 3 km versions. The 10 km race saw runners aged from 6 to 60, with about 950 men and 125 women vying for the top honors. The milling crowds at the registration desks on the Calicut beach bore testimony to the enthusiasm exhibited by the city's youth and the young at heart. The men's mini marathon was flagged off by Mr. Jayaram, Mr. M. K. Raghavan, Mr. K. V. Thomas, Prof. Chatterjee and Dr. P. B. Salim from the start line near the Calicut Government Hospital at about 8 am. Following it, the women's mini marathon was flagged off by Ms. Usha.

Along with the 10 km Mini Marathon, a 3 km Celebrity Walk was also organized where the dignitaries walked shoulder to shoulder with students and members from various organizations in the city. The aim of this walk was to exhibit the solidarity of the different groups with the issues closest to their hearts. Students from NIT Calicut, Government Homeo College, Sri Guruvayurappan College, JDT Islam College of Nursing, Devagiri College of Arts and other colleges walked the route carrying banners and placards designed to draw attention to various issues like world peace, saving the environment, etc.

The Men's 10 km mini marathon was won by Mr. Sandeep Kumar of Railways. Mr. Elam Singh from the army (Uttarkhand) and Mr. M. Borappa came in second and third respectively. The women's mini marathon was won by Ms. Preeja Sreedharan of Railways with Ms. Kiran Tiwari of Railways and Ms. M. Sudha coming second and third respectively. The winners took home a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh while the runners up got Rs. 50000 and the second runners up, Rs. 25000.
