N. Valliappan, Joint Race Director, Coimbatore Marathon, said, “In the last one year we see a visible difference on the roads of Coimbatore. The number of recreational long-distance runners have certainly gone up post pandemic. This is likely to translate to higher participation in the flagship running event of Coimbatore. This year’s theme Ko Kovai will motivate runners to run with a partner – Boss, father, mother, sister, bestie, spouse, etc thus enlarging the circle of running.” For details, write to:
