Kochi Triathlon 2018

Triathlon 2018 was envisioned and conceptualized with a view to give a new definition to the Adventure Tourism scenario in Kerala and to promote the lesser known tourist places in Ernakulam district of "Gods Own Country" Kerala among the international and domestic tourists. On its first assignment, Triathlon 2018 is a venture into a lesser explored arena in the sports of cycling, swimming and running.

The event is being organized by "TDK Sports"and executed by one of the veteran operators in this field,"Santos King", based in Kochi. They have the rich experience of having conducted various adventure tours within Kerala and parts of South India, and are well versed with tackling the complexities and formalities associated with such events. It is expected to create waves in the general public and youth population of Kerala.

With extensive marketing and exclusive promotions through various media channels, our previous event Tour De Kerala (TDK) reached out to almost all the cities in India and even abroad, and witnessed an amazing participation of over 100 professional/amateur cyclists competing for the first official title of TDK Challenge. The cyclothon was held through the 90km on Sabarimala High Road in the district of Pathanamthitta, Kerala. The prizes for the first 3 positions itself were worth Rs. 1.05 lacs which made it furthermore attractive for professionals in this field.The first TDK Challenge was held in the season of September 2014 and it won special appreciations from the participants, media, Govt. of Kerala, bureaucracy, ministerial level and general public for the flawless conduct and organization of the event.

After the success of TDK, the organizing team successfully conducted 'Joanns Kochi Duskathon 2018, Powered by Mahindra' in association with DTPC Ernakulam and Kerala Tourism. 1200+ runners from all across the world participated in a one-of-a-kind sunset beach run which was well received by the Running groups and local population of Kerala.

Following the events conducted earlier, the organizing team has decided to take a step further and make Triathlon 2018, a one-of-a-kind entertainment event proposed to be scheduled on the 23rd September 2018. Triathlon 2018 will be a much bigger event with the organizing team reaching out to maximum professionals, increasing the prize worth to one of the maximum honored in any past Triathlon event in our country, and also facilitating the participation from maximum Triathletes from all across the country.

The team also looks forward to associating with the Government and Tourism departments to make it a flagship adventure tourism event which shall be held every year going forward.


Aiming at promotion of Tourism and the importance of maintaining one's health, this event spreads its goodness message about saving our mother Earth and conservation of forests. The event will pass on the message on the benefits of sports of swimming, cycling and running to the general public and encourage more people to take these sports activities as part of their daily life and routine. This shall also provide a gateway for organizing more of National level Triathlon events in our State for its most ideal climatic and geographic conditions for such events.


The event is well supported by:

  • Departments of Kerala State Government, especially Tourism and Sports.
  • District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC), Kerala Tourism
  • Kerala Adventure Tourism Promotion Society (KAPTS)
  • Cycling, Running and Swimming clubs and groups.
  • IT companies
  • Adventure sports enthusiasts and lovers
  • School and college students

The proposed venue for the event is in Malayattoor, a meeting place of mountain, river and land located about 47 km from Kochi. Malayattoor is famous for the Catholic church, located on the top of the Malayattoor hill, at a height of 609 metres. The shrine has now been accorded an international pilgrimage station.

We are also trying to pitch in the tourism aspect in the whole event by providing a night stay on an optional basis in the most exotic ambience of Malayattoor. DJ will be part of the event and breakfast and lunch will be provided on the event day.

Safety precautions have been taken care of with provisions of ambulance services, life jackets, speed boats, water tubes, ropes and life guards.
