Every year the Konkan Beach Marathon happens on the Konkan coast near Alibag, but for everyone's safety this year it is a Virtual run. You complete your run at your convenience at your location. Come back to this website and update your details about the run. Give us the distance you covered, time you took, app you used to record your achievement, photo of
your actual run. We will send you your certificate by email. All the best, have a safe and fun running experience.
If possible and if circumstances get better we may organise actual run. The charges for that and details will be possible only mid December
Konkan Beach Marathon is run entirely on the beach. The sand is compact and firm. We start running before the sunrise when there is the early dark blue light. It is ok to run barefoot but remember some sea shells also have sharp edges. At the finish everyone dips into the Arabian Sea. You can keep a change of clothes at the baggage counter at the start-finish point. At the finish you will have music for dancing, this beach carnival continues up to the high tide, then we shift the party to Karpewadi. Konkan Beach Marathon is conducted under the aegis of Raigad District Athletic Association.
