About Goa River Marathon

Goa River Marathon is a 42-Kilomenter, 21-Kilomenter and 10-Kilomenter run in paradise with a route that starts at Chicalim SAG Cricket Ground and runs alongside the pristine blue waters of the Zuari River. Held each year in second week of December!

The beautiful river view, tree-shaded route, super smooth roads and professional organization make this one of the top marathons in India and has been duly acknowledeged as such in various magazines including Nat Geo Traveller which says "Goa River Marathon is one of the 10 Great Marathons in the world". DNA India too puts Goa River Marathon as being amongst the "Top 5 Marathons in India".

Arrangements ranging from halting the traffic to medical aid to hydration are all top-class. Whether you choose to run or walk; whether you choose the full marathon or 5-KM walk or anything in between, you won’t find reason to complain. And of course, as usual we have loads of entertainment.
