Vision of the Future

For most locals the idea of a marathon is usually thought of as something crazy. Why would anyone want to run 42 kilometres? What is the benefit in that and so on… Who has the time to run a crazy 42 kms or 21 kms half marathon, better to stay at home and watch the tele… or maybe hang out with friends grab a couple of beers…

The origin of the Kanchenjunga marathon is a small seed which will hopefully germinate into something beautiful…

While a small start, we are hopefully that we can slowly start changing the fixed concepts and closed mindsets of our community so that this event can create social and economical revolution with positive impacts on Sikkimese society and economy. 21 st century living has changed all our lives to a certain extent; some more some less and an accompanying baggage of good and bad impacts.
