Mangalore Runners Club is a nonprofit organization and was founded by a group of six persons who had a passion for running. The group’s goal is to gather people from all around the city who enjoy running and want to live a fit and healthy lifestyle together. This club has grown to over 150 members in just a year. Runners from the club have participated in a number of well-known marathons, including the Tata Mumbai Marathon, the Ooty Ultra Marathon, and the Dandeli Ultra Marathon. We are an enthusiastic group of runners.
Mangalore Runners Club is bringing the first edition of the Niveus Mangalore Marathon with the mission to create a long-term community-focused running event that encourages athletes of all levels to live healthy life and improve their personal fitness by running.

In partnership with NGO to ensure minimal waste is produced during the event and the waste produced is treated scientifically and sustainably.
