Gobichettipalayam is located in Kongu Nadu, the north-western part of Tamil Nadu about 400 kilometres (250 mi) south west of Chennai. Western Ghats forms the border of the region resulting several hill locks and Bhavani River traverses across the region. The temperature is moderately warm and rainfall is also moderate to high, unpredictable and unevenly distributed. A major part of present Gobichettipalayam was previously known as "Veerapandi Gramam", the town was part of the country ruled by King Vel Pari, who is regarded as one of the Kadai ezhu vallal (the last seven great patrons). The land was later ruled by the Cheras and Vijayanagar empire with the town deriving its name after Gobi Chetti, a Vijayanagara Polygar.It was captured by Tipu Sultan and after Tipu's defeat, British annexed it to their territory.

Kongu Tamil, a dialect of Tamil is the language spoken by majority of the people. English is used as an official language along with Tamil. Other languages spoken include Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu. Gobichettipalayam cuisine is predominantly south Indian with rice as its base. Most locals still retain their rural tradition, with many restaurants still serving food on a banana leaf. The municipality of Gobichettipalayam has 67.604 kilometres. The major income of the town is agriculture so that people preferably cultivating like Sugarcane, Rice, Banana, Turmeric, etc, so the environment is looks green.

About the Marathon

According to the Greek history, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C to announce the defeat of the Persians to some anxious Athenians. Customary as a tribute to an Ancient Greek legend, the Olympics made the marathon the universal participatory sports today. Running a marathon is one of the most challenging and rewarding events that any of us will experience and offers a great opportunity to meet new people and build lasting friendships. The marathon takes us up to, and beyond, the limit of human endurance, into an unknown zone where we confront our true selves, and discover our inner strengths and limits.  The fact that exercise requires planning, application, dedication and discipline means that it can help to improve character development. The marathon distance is elegantly set to take us beyond our comfort zone, into a territory in which we confront the limitations of our bodies and our minds.  There are no short cuts, no easy ways out.
