The 42.195 Km Full Marathon route starts at 04:30 a.m. and is a 21.0975 Km from start to turnaround point and back. This route is therefore run twice to achieve a total distance of 42.195 Kms.
GOA RIVER MARATHON will take care to ensure participants are adequately hydrated by setting up hydration points at regular intervals (every 1 ~ 1.5 KM). Every alternate hydration station also has medical aid staff and additionally, there will be four or five emergency response ambulances patrolling the route. The route will be closed to vehicular traffic for at least 6 hours.
Race officials will be patrolling the route. Photographers too will be placed at strategic points to ensure maximum coverage and also to try and ensure that each and every participant has a good chance of being photographed. Goa River Marathon has been uploading thousands of photos each year and since 2014, we've been uploading 8,000+ high resolution photos each year. Also, as far as we know, we are the only race organizer in this category to include a bib search in the photo album.
Note: After 10:30 A.M. there will be partial traffic in many places and thereafter full traffic will be open. Any participant running with the event bib after 11:00 A.M. that will be lifted off the course on our vehicles. This is being done for the safety of the participants and under orders of the local law authorities.
