Since we care about our employees’ health, we started sponsoring employees running Chennai Marathon many years back. In 2014 we suggested starting an annual marathon for MEPZMA (MEPZ Manufacturers Association), MEPZMA is. The idea was well received, and in March 2015, MEPZ Run was started. Since then, it has been an annual marathon and one of the larger in Chennai. The route is also quite scenic, with start and end inside the MEPZ Campus, through the forest behind the MEPZ Campus and along the Chennai Outer Ringroad and the Chennai Bypass. From the beginning, there were three different distances; 5km, 10km and a Half Marathon. The shorter distance has been shortened to 2km and is mainly intended for children.
The purpose of MEPZ Run is to put MEPZ on the map and to encourage people to live a healthier life. The proceeds go to planting trees and making MEPZ greener, which aligns well with our values. Therefore we have also been one of the key sponsors for all five races since 2015!
