MUMBAI: Procam International, promoters of Asia’s most prestigious marathon, Tuesday announced that the Tata Mumbai Marathon (TMM) will take place on 30th May.
With cautious optimism and hope, this decision has been taken after deliberation and collaborative efforts with the state and civic authorities, including the Indian and international athletic bodies.
Guided by the prevailing government protocol, Procam International will look to conduct the on-ground event, with limited participation in the Full Marathon, Half Marathon and 10 Km runs. While limited numbers will run from their scheduled location, participants from across India and the world, will be able to run as one with TMM from a location of their preference, via the official TMM 2021 App. The promoters shall continue to monitor the situation, with the single-minded focus of the safety of all participants, officials, volunteers and the running fraternity.
This rescheduled date should give runners the necessary time to prepare as they continue with their training regimen in eager anticipation of race date for the 18th edition of Tata Mumbai Marathon. Furthermore, NGOs, companies and individual fundraisers get valuable time for effective outreach, in order to raise funds for their chosen cause.
The Tata Mumbai Marathon is a beacon of hope and generosity from Mumbai to the world. The event has not only revolutionized the sport of running in India but grown to become a testimony of the power of the human spirit, and the wonders that one can achieve, as a collective.
Details including format of the race, registration details, safety measures, protocols, and participant requirements will be shared at a later date.
For now, the teams are working fervently and promise to return with more news, soon.
