Every year the Chennai Trekking Club organizes a number of large events including marathons, ultras, triathlons, environmental awareness drives and symposiums.
As a mark to remember and mourn for our friends who lost their lives in the recent Kurangani fire accident, Chennai Trekking Club has decided to not organize our annual sports events in 2018 including the Jawadhu Hills Ultra, Chennai Trail Marathon andChennai Triathlon. All these are non-profit events to inspire people into an active and healthy lifestyle through sports close to nature. As much as we would like to continue the tradition, we feel that we need a break to recover from our loss. We hope to resume our sports events next year.
