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.

For some motivation, check out our previous post. I’m yet to run a full marathon, but I definitely have it on my to do list.

Running is one of the best ways to burn fat and lose those love handles and that belly fat. It helped me show that elusive six pack! Besides this, running has a lot of physical benefits.

For more motivation, here’s a little info on one of our team members:

He started running in late 2003. In Feb 2004, he forced myself to register for a 5k. He hated running when he started it. After training for two months for the first 5k in May 2004 (Heart Mini Marathon), he timed in at 22 min, 45 sec. That is 4 min, 50 sec per km.
Later that year, he ran a 10 k in 5 degree celsius weather, in 48.5 minutes. And then the running didn’t stop.  The first half marathon was the US Air Force Marathon at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton. Timed in at 1 hour, 42 minutes (4 min, 50 sec per km).  It was a tough run, but it was a phenomenal experience. The excitement of running with thousands of people. The rush of accomplishing a personal feat. And the glory of beating your fear of running or the distance. Its something to experience.

Running is great way to burn fat and lose those love handles and show that elusive six pack! Besides this, running has many health benefits.

The half marathon is a great event. Register and start training now. The Dream Run is a great way to start running for non runners.

At Fitho, we’ll create running programs customized to your needs. If you have any questions
