Route Information: [update] This information was recently updated. Please look above for the links to route maps for all events of the Mumbai Marathon 2009.  Its surprising that even though registrations have closed, the routes have not been published. Very similar to the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2008, where the routes were published 24 days before the run.

Need motivation to participate? Total prize money is a respectable USD $250,000 (considering the exchange rate of 50 INR, I’d say its good enough to make me run)

For the full Mumbai marathon 2009, prize categories include Top 13 overall runners- men and women, Top 5 Indian runners- men and women, Top 3 veteran finishers- men and women, Top 2 Sr. Veterans and top 2 Super Sr. Veterans. For the half marathon, its the top 5 male and female overall finishers, Top 3 veteran finishers- men and women, Top 2 Sr. Veterans and top 2 Super Sr. Veterans.

If the money doesn’t matter, then you get serious bragging rights! And you get your photo splashed all over the newspaper.
