Welcome to Vizag Navy Marathon
“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must – just never give up.”
–Dean Karnazes, ultramarathoner and author
An Eastern Naval Command initiative and proud flagship marathon event by the Indian Navy is the biggest sporting event of the state. The 7th edition is the most special as the city and runners across the fraternity have missed the most scenic route and the event that gets the sea of runners along the coastline bringing the state of sunrise to experience the runners high again. Vizag Navy Marathon will see participants from the armed forces, corporate hub, public sector, and educational institutions in huge numbers. The running event is also familiar in the international circuit, and we have a good representation from various nations and all the states.
The inception of the Vizag Navy Marathon in 2014 was the pioneer in getting the running events to the City of Destiny. The scenic coastline with the mountains overlooking the wave of runners along the sunrise route makes it a treat to watch. Come November 13th 2022 and the city is set for the seventh edition of the Marathon.

The mesmerizing view of the sunrise from the horizon is a great view for both the participants and spectators. This scenic non-deviating course along the coastline is termed “THE BEST SCENIC ROUTE IN THE WORLD”. The 22 km stretch of run alongside the beach is nowhere to be found in India.
