With an aim to combine tourism promotion, entertainment, a spirit of adventure, and an awareness of healthy living and physical activity, the Kannur district administration will kick start a unique initiative, the Month of Adventure, on May 6, 2018. Four consecutive Sundays of May, beginning on May 6, would be dedicated to the promotion of various adventure events in Kannur.

Kannur district sports council and the district administration organising a cycling marathon from Kannur to the Muzhappilangad beach on May 6. Anyone who has a cycle can participate in the marathon. The next Sunday, May 13, will see a 0.5-km marathon run, Thalassery Heritage Run. The run will take the runners to the Thalassery Fort, Thiruvangad temple, and several other heritage spots. A swimming marathon on May 20 throws up the challenge of swimming across the Valapattanam river, by crossing the 570 m wide Parassini Cross. The adventure enthusiasts will get an opportunity to take part in Kayaking, organised at Kawwayi near Payyannur on the last Sunday of the month, May 27.

Those who wish to participate in the events can register through Kannur DTPC or through the website,
