Srei believes that physical fitness is paramount for the wellness of individuals and is therefore supporting this initiative, to make ‘India Fit’. A fit body ensures greater ability to make complex decisions, better concentration, increased creativity and resistance to stress at the workplace.

The race categories include the Main Marathon (for Men) – 42.195 km, 15 Km (for Men and Women – prize money only for women) and the fun run of 5 km. For the first time since inception, the Srei Kolkata Marathon, 2015 will have timing chips available to the participants of the main Marathon and the 15 Km race. The timing chips allow organisers to track runners from the second they cross the start line to the all-important finishing line and is recognized as globally accepted certified timing, thereby adding that added authenticity for the professional runners.

The Kolkata Marathon also has been acting as a platform to contribute to various social causes. The increased number of registered participants, the quality of the elite athletes participating, the winning timings and the rock solid commitment of the sponsors and partners to the event qualitatively adds on to the marathon experience each and every year.
