About Tata Mumbai Marathon

TMM - The Possible Dream

“Every great city of the world must have a Marathon. Nothing binds a city as a marathon does!”

Since its inception in 1988, Procam International conducted a host of world-class sporting properties across disciplines including cricket, tennis, football, volleyball, WWE, badminton, squash, rugby and horseracing. However, Anil & Vivek, always dreamed of conducting an international marathon in India. They firmly believed that running was a panacea for society - bringing together people, from across the world, of varying abilities, caste, creed and social strata, onto a common platform. “The road is a great leveller”

Sixteen years ago, India was a spectatorial nation and participative sport such as distance running, was a far thought.

The year 2003 saw Anil and Vivek attend the London Marathon. That experience was an endorsement of their dream, it helped unfold the power of sport right in front of their eyes. The rush of the legs, the pulsating heartbeats, the vibrant positive energy and the smiles on that finish line, were symbolic of each participant’s triumph. An unforgettable event, it left an indelible mark on the brothers. And thus, began the journey of The Mumbai Marathon.

It wasn’t easy, but the belief and support from the Government, all partners and stake-holders, has stood the test of time.

Mumbai Marathon’s journey for the past 15 years has been transformational - from starting a fitness revolution that has spawned over 1000 road races in the country, to creating a springboard for Indian long and middle-distance runners; people coming together - beyond politics, religion, race, colour, - a beacon of humanity and compassion for the nation and the world.

Today, the Tata Mumbai Marathon is an IAAF Gold label race and amongst the top 10 marathons in the world and has truly put India on the global map of distance running. The USD 405,000 event has six different race categories - Full Marathon (42.195 kms), Half Marathon (21.097 kms), Dream Run (6.6 km), Senior Citizens Race (4.7 km), Champions with Disability category (2.1 km) and a newly added Open 10K run. Over 46,000 participants including amateurs, fitness enthusiasts and the world’s best distance runners, take to the streets of Mumbai on the third Sunday of January every year.

The event is not only the biggest participative sport in the country, but also the single largest fund-raising platform for Civil Society Organisations. Since its inception, the event has raised in excess of INR 266 crores benefitting over 700 NGOs, supporting myriad causes and helping millions in our society, live a #BetterTommorow.

Tata Mumbai Marathon has never been about just running…. It is the Possible Dream!

Highlights

Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is big. It’s full of dreamers and hard-labourers, starlets and gangsters, stray dogs and exotic birds, artists and servants, fisherfolk and crorepatis (millionaires), and lots and lots of people. It has India’s most prolific film industry, some of Asia’s biggest slums (as well as the world’s most expensive home) and the largest tropical forest in an urban zone. Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion epicentre and a pulse point of religious tension.

If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself. The city isn’t a threatening place but its furious energy, limited public transport and punishing pollution make it challenging for visitors. The heart of the city contains some of the grandest colonial-era architecture on the planet but explore a little more and you’ll uncover unique bazaars, hidden temples, hipster enclaves and India’s premier restaurants and nightlife.

Overview

The Marathon starts opposite Chhatrapati Shivaji Railway Terminus Mumbai. It runs along many of the city’s iconic locations such as Flora Fountain, Marine Drive, Chowpatty, Haji Ali, Mahim Church, and of course the Bandra-Worli Sea link.
