The SKF Goa River Marathon (SKF GRM), now in its 12th edition, is a 42.195 KM run alongside the picturesque Zuari river in Goa. This year, the marathon will be held on December 11 and will begin from the village of Chicalim.
One of the most popular marathons in India, the SKF Goa River Marathon has an AIMS certified route stretching beyond the beautiful river view, shaded trail, and city roads. It is ranked as one of the 10 Great Marathons in the world by National Geographic Traveler.
From a half Marathon to a full run, there is a wide range of options for runners to choose from. The marathon usually starts at 04:30 AM, while the half marathon begins at 6:00 AM. The 10 KM competitive run begins at 06:45 AM, followed by a 5 KM fun-walk-or-run event at 8:30 AM. Regardless of what you participate in, we insist that you have a fun run!
Ahead of the main event, the SKF Goa River Marathon will also organize pre-event runs in various parts of Goa accompanied by special ‘How-to’ workshops to help both the novice and the expert runners gear up for the marathon. Follow our website and Facebook page to stay updated!
World-class arrangements have been made ranging from traffic management to medical-aid and hydration. Whether you choose to run or walk, the marathon or the 5 KM or anything in between, you'll find no reason to complain. And as usual, of course, there will be entertainment.
