The Skechers Performance Goa River Marathon (SPGRM) 2018 organised by Vasco Sports Club will be held on December 9 this year.  

Vasco Sports Club, which was started in the Portuguese era, is one of the oldest football clubs in India and has forayed into other sporting activities as well.  

This will be the ninth edition of the event and will be organised from the Joggers Park in Chicalim. 

The event will see runners from India and across the world take part in the 10km, 21 km and 42 km race categories and will have a total prize money of over Rs 7 lakhs.  

The 5 km, walk-run, family and corporate event which is also organised alongside the marathons has also gained popularity over the years.  

The Skechers Performance Goa River Marathon’s special features include an official recognition by the 

Association of International Marathons and Distance races (AIMS) and the course distances are marked for accuracy by the international athletics body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).  

The SPGRM course is considered amongst the toughest marathon courses in India and showcases Goa’s natural beauty and 

pollution-free scenery. 

Eighty per cent of the course passes along the river Zuari on one side and 

lush green hills on the other side, allowing marathoners a shaded route for most of 

the race.
