Soles of Cochin successfully organized the fifth edition of IDBI Federal Life Insurance Spice Coast Marathon on November 11, 2018.
Runners from all over the country and the world, ranging from 4 year-olds to 70 year-olds, participated in the past editions of Spice Coast Marathon in various race categories. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about the importance of fitness and keeping our bodies healthy to prevent alarming lifestyle diseases. This event sees normal individuals run distances they never believed they could run. Spice Coast Marathon also intends to generate funds for a number of charity programs and to promote the beauty of the land we live in.
The 42 Kilometres – 42 Stories theme sees the course meander through the picturesque historic locations of Fort Cochin, Mattanchery and the adjacent locales to give runners a unique experience. Runners get to experience the best of what the Soles of Cochin can offer in terms of the running experience, they get to breathe in (quite literally too while running through the spice market) the rich and vibrant cultural heritage of the city.
