Auroville, also called the City of Dawn, is a universal township located 8 Km north of Puducherry in South India. Founded in 1968 by The Mother, the city aims to be a place where where men and women of various countries can live in peace and harmony, above all creeds, politics and nationalities.
The Mother gave the 4-point charter for Auroville:
Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But to live in Auroville, one must be a willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.
Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations.
Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual Human Unity.
This marathon has been classified under ‘Lemuria”. Pondicherry lies on the south eastern coast of India. The extension of south India was into the legendary city of ‘Poompuhar’, which is thought to be a part of the pre-historic land of Lemuria.
The marathon is run largely in the trails of Auroville forests, with less than 5% of the distance on hard tarmac. Runners get charmed by the beauty of trails, the peacocks, lush green forests, the enthusiastic drummers from Svaram and the friendly volunteers manning the aid stations.
