This is an event where people from all walks of life partake including Bollywood celebrities, Sports personalities, Business Tycoons, Professional & Amateur Athletes. Plus, the spectators who cheer for the runners are in large amounts.

As the popularity of Mumbai Marathon is growing year by year, it has become a little tough for everyone to qualify. Qualifiers of this event must meet the designated time standard that corresponds with their age group & gender. The qualifying times are based on the runner's age on the date of the event in which they are planning to participate.

To qualify, the first thing to do is pick a good marathon to attempt your qualification. There are many marathons that can be used as qualifiers, but not all marathons count as a qualifier. So check before you participate.
