5th EDITION, 8th DEC 2019, COORG


Calling all tribes, all clans, all barefoot running people!

Join the 18 tribes of Coorg in an adventure that will change your life.

You are invited by the Coorg Wellness Foundation, the Coorg Wildlife Society and the United Sisters Foundation, to India's first Barefoot Marathon. Much has been spoken, much has been heard, read and said. It is time to feel for yourself. It is time to reconnect with the earth and with your innermost being. It is time to take a step in a new direction, barefoot. This will be the first ever meeting ground for barefoot runners from across the country so be there to share your story.

Choose your distance!

  • The barefoot mile also known as 1650 mts run, is the shortest distance, ideal for first-time runners.
  • The barefoot 10k and 21k is ideal for runners who have run those distances comfortably in the past.
  • and of course the 42k for those for whom barefoot is the way, and the path, and the life :)
