The Goa Marathon is one of the biggest event in Goa, never to miss. The event is not only a platform to test an individual’s athletic excellence but also a unique fund raising event for charity. In the last two years of existence, it has assumed a stature of eminence, being the single largest philanthropic sporting event in Goa. EVERY FEBRUARY 

THE RACE

The endeavor of the Goa Marathon is to raise funds to build homes for economically weaker families in Goa and the Konkan region.  The First Edition was held on March 11, 2012 where over 750 individuals Ran for Homes and Hope. The Second Edition was held on March 3, 2013. More than 2000 individuals participated in the Half Marathon and Dream Run which started and ended at the Campal Ground, Panjim. The media support plan that included print, radio, outdoors and online created a buzz and ensured that the Goa Marathon was established as a ‘not to be missed’ event in Goa. The Third Edition will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2014.
