The categories of run are Half Marathon (21.1Kms), 10 Kms, Fun Run (7 Kms) and a Family Run (3 Kms).



Desinganad Backwaters Marathon (DBM) first edition was conducted on 10 Jul 2022. The event was spectacular in all sense - be the number of participants – both Indian nationals and Foreigners, the scenic route of event , the foolproof arrangements, the overwhelming participation and support of local people, - DBM made an impact in the history of Kollam and the people of Kollam was impressed with the first professional marathon in their City. They realised that running can bring so much fun and excitement besides its health benefits. DBM received lot of accolades from the runners fraternity and local peoples alike. DBM 2022 was just a beginning...

The Second Edition of DBM was conducted on 09 July 2023. More than 1000 runners from all over India participated in the event. We are now moving on to the third edition of DBM, which will be held on 14 Jul 2024 (Sunday).


Soles of Kollam Runners Club was formed in the year 2017 with the aim to encourage people to take up healthy living by running and also to spread the benefits of running to the people of Kollam. The club was successful in its mission by adding 250+ members aboard who run or take up other health related activities on a daily basis. Soles of Kollam was instrumental in bringing up the running culture among Kollamites. With the experience of participating in various running events both within and outside Kerala, the Club had nurtured its dream of conducting its own marathon at Kollam in the year 2019. The plans of a marathon was marred by the unfortunate outbreak of Covid-19 and eventually the first professional marathon was conducted on 10 Jul 2022. The city of Kollam, in its history witnessed a professionally conducted marathon with more than 800 national and international runners participating. The event was such a success that runners and local people were fascinated by the way it was conducted and there was a demand from every one that the subsequent editions of this event be conducted. We are overwhelmed to receive such positive feed back and duty bound to conduct further editions of DBM in a much more professional way.

After the successful Conduct of First and Second Editions of DBM, we are happy to announce the third edition of DBM.
