The Wipro Chennai Marathon

The Wipro Chennai Marathon(TWCM) is organized by Chennai Runners, a not-for-profit organization run by passionate runner-volunteers since 2006. It is one of the few running events in the country that is entirely organized by the running community.

Originally started as the ECR Run, it was a simple affair. Participants would begin from a resort on East Coast Road (ECR) and and run down 5 or 10 km, turn back and then have breakfast together at the resort and that was all. There were no more than 25 runners on the first ECR run and contributions were used to cover breakfast at the resort. The quarterly ECR Run transformed into an annual signature event in 2010.

TWCM is now the country’s second largest marathon after Mumbai.There are three race categories, the 10Km, the Half Marathon (21Km) and Full Marathon (42Km). Held on the first Sunday in December every year, the marathon route covers some of Chennai’s historic landmarks.
