Calicut management association, IIM K , Usha school of athletics and many others jointly organised the calicut mini marathon on 31st january.
Registration slips were got from focuz mall. I went to the beach at the time they wanted me to 0630. Near Mavoor road i found more people with running shoes , all heading to beach. Long queues in beach seemed small due to the majesty of sea. I got Tshirt, but no cap. The Cap was limited. I could see athlete- P.T Usha, Actor-maammukoya and later Actor- jayaram. The stage was open so many tried to take pictures and have chat with them. People for the 10 km marathon started off at 0730. They ran for a cause 1 Lakh prize money.
The general 3 km marathon was to happen later. People were ready with placars, banners. Some came with advertisements.
They all ran FOR A CAUSE!
