Mumbai is a big, melting pot of acity. A city that's home to dreamers, and hard-workers, starlets and gangsters, artists andfisherfolk and millionaires and lots and lots of people. It has India’s most prolific film industry, some of Asia’s biggest slums, as well as the world’s most expensive home, and the largest tropical forest in an urban zone! Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion epicentre, and a pulse point of religious tension. It’s even evolved its own language, Bambaiyya Hindi, which is Hindi, Marathi, and a bit of everything.
With that being said, let’s make some memories at the Tata Mumbai Marathon on 21st January 2018.
