Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon (SCMM)

We are back this year with the 13th edition of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon which will be held on 17 January 2016.
 

The Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon has become an annual event which all Mumbai'ites look forward to. It is an established marathon with participants coming from all over the world.

Since its inception in 2004, the event has grown manifold in stature and popularity, each year. It has become a movement that brings together the professional athlete, the common man, the corporate czar, the politician, the movie star & the physically and mentally challenged onto one platform. For the professional runner it is a challenging race, a test of stamina against heat and humidity. It gives the individuals an opportunity to work towards their personal fitness as well as support a cause of their choice. Through this event an individual or a corporate gets a chance to be a socially responsible citizen / organization trying to support people in real need.For the amateur, it is a chance to be a part of an annual extravaganza. For NGOs, the event has become a chance to raise awareness about their cause and generate funds.
