Urja – This is an intra-institute. Spread over three days during February/ March, learners are encouraged to participate in this event at least in the form of a spectator. Athletes are always inspired by the presence of a team of supporters. Urja not only tests one’s physical abilities in track and field events but also offers an opportunity for creating a familial bond among different members of learners.
Twaran – Twaran is an inter IIITM athletics meet also held around February/ March every year. Students from four IIITMs in Allahabad, Jabalpur, Kanchipuram, and Gwalior take part in this track and field competition with zeal and enthusiasm. In addition to sporting glories achieved, Twaran provides a platform for interacting with IIITMians across India.
