Fifty Royal Enfield bikers powered through the streets of Kozhikode on Tuesday with their pillion riders holding banners and waving flags. The bike rally, organized by the students of IIM Kozhikode in association with Royal Enfield, forms part of a series of promotional events leading up to Calicut Marathon 2016. On-lookers watched as the bikes made their way on a 10 km route through the city. The rally kicked-off at 5:30 PM from Mini Bypass and ended at Corporation Office, Beach Road.
The event was a prelude to this year’s SBI Buddy Calicut Mini-Marathon to be held on 28th February, 2016, in association with Niravu. The theme of the marathon this year is ‘Compassionate Kozhikode’. The Kozhikode District Administration’s brainchild, Compassionate Kozhikode through its initiatives such as Operation Sulaimani and Savari Giri Giri provides a platform for social good. The marathon aptly named “Run for Compassion” will see thousands gather at Calicut Beach on the D-day to support the cause.
With Rs. 2 lakh in prize money, the marathon features two race categories, a 10 km mini-marathon which is a competitive race and a 3 km “Dream Run”, a non‐competitive run featuring people from all walks of life. Calicut mini Marathon 2016 is proud to be associated with the SBI Buddy as the main sponsor and Peekay Steel as the Prize Sponsor.
