Kathgodam Marathon: The Newest Indian Marathon

Sports Rediscovered’s coverage of the Indian marathon circuit previews a new entrant in the calendar this year- the Kathgodam Marathon. “The Gateway of Kumaon Hills” joins the Indian marathon bandwagon, with the first Kathgodam Half Marathon.

The beauty of Uttarakhand reflects in Kathgodam, a small town situated at a distance of 35 km from the popular hill station of Nainital. It is situated in the Bhabhar region, on the foothills of Kumaon Himalayas. The picturesque landscape of the town will surely make this marathon one of the most scenic marathons in the country.
