Staying fit is not a competition. What matters is how you challenge yourself, by breaking barriers and reaching new boundaries every day. In today’s dynamic times, with a busy schedule, one needs motivation and a push to reach newer heights.

Mumbai Suburban Half Marathon organized by Fitizen India is an event to showcase various suburbs across Mumbai to all the experienced and newbie runners. The first edition of this run is happening on July 8, 2018, at one of the most popular suburbs of Mumbai – Borivali West, which Borivali is the only neighborhood in the city, with a forest on the east (Sanjay Gandhi National Park) & mangroves on the west. It is special both in terms of its location — a place where you can be away from the busy world, yet still be a part of it.

The purpose of the marathon is also to create awareness with regards to the environment. The accumulated waste in Mumbai has contributed to the pollution in the city. Our water bodies are clogged due to non-degradable waste, and the rivers are polluted with the waste which we have thrown around in our surroundings. In order to bring a change, MSHM has taken a pledge to beat the pollution by raising voice and making it the main purpose of the marathon. Mumbai’s Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has also extended their support for the same.


Race categories

Family 5km run – A great way for the parents to run and interact with their children, thereby teach them something about health, fitness, and environment. This run is open for individuals too.

10km/21km runs – These are timed runs, where the result will be recorded on an electronic timing chip, provided during/before the run.

   

Registration

Fitizen has collaborated with renowned firms such as Townscript, India Running , and GoEventz and one can register for the run on either of these three links.

The distribution of the race kit and bibs will be done some days prior to the marathon. But in cases where one cannot collect it, Fitizen can also courier the same, at a minimal charge, to ensure there are no hassles of personally coming to collect your registration kit. Further, participants who register before June 10 will also get a personalised T-shirt for the run-day.


To successfully create awareness about recycling, for a better future, MSHM is calling out all the enthusiastic runners to join this “RUN TO RECYCLE”.  Let’s ensure that we join hands in this cause as it is extremely important for us to make this change for the future generations.
