The 17th edition of the Mumbai Marathon 2020 kicked off at 5.15 am.

Runners Energized With Elite Hydration
Above all, it was a priority for the runners and volunteers of TMM to be secured with the right nutrition to keep them energized and hydrated throughout the race, wherever need be. That's why over 350 volunteers from Fast&Up set up hydration stalls along the race route to secure the runners with the instant energy drink- Reload- in order to replenish the electrolytes runners naturally lose during the course of the race. After all, since we know, that water just isn't enough to sustain hydration levels amongest marathon runners.

To conclude the race, all in all, was a thrill to experience for all those present, and this excitement has us all geared up to anticipate the Tata Mumbai Marathon next year, as it certainly becoming a yearly ritual for those who have engaged in the run before.
