The concept of "Kochi Duskathon" arose from the rising number of runners and fitness enthusiasts in our country.

With the increase in hectic lifestyles and busy schedules coupled with stress and other physical diseases associated, Running has proven to be an athletic and healthy sport, which brings positivity to mind and body in more than one ways.

There are numerous marathons being conducted in our country with numbers growing at an alarming rate on a yearly basis.
