Cosplay, a made-up word coined from a combination of the words costume and play (play the role of the character embodied), has taken the world by storm, becoming a popular way for fans to express their love for their favourite characters and stories. As a dynamic and ever-evolving art form, cosplay allows individuals to transform themselves into their favourite characters, embodying their personalities and quirks. With the rising popularity of cosplay in India, we aim to celebrate this subculture with our Run In Costume contest. This event encourages participants to showcase their creativity and passion for cosplay while running in their favourite costumes. Run In Costume is a celebration of pop culture in all its forms, and we invite all fans of comics, movies, anime, gaming, and TV shows to come together and join us in this exciting event. Additionally, as cosplay has become increasingly popular in marathons worldwide, we're thrilled to offer runners the opportunity to participate in our run categories while dressed in their favourite cosplay costumes.

Make Run In Costume the your ultimate platform to showcase your skills, creativity, and love for your favourite characters.
