Are you a running enthusiast interested in running the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon (SCMM) 2016 but do not have the timing certificate meeting the qualifying criteria to register? 

 Organized by Sports United under the aegis of Mumbai Suburban District Athletics Association, the Monsoon 10K Run will be held at Chembur, Mumbai, on 23rd August 2015. It will be a 10K timed race and will have four categories: an Open Category each for men and women, and a veteran category for men and women.  

This is the first of a three-run series which will be held across three prestigious clubs and gymkhanas in the year 2015-16. Timing chips will be given to participants to record timings electronically. Organizers say the timing certificate will be recognized by SCMM 2016.  The event will promote and support the organisation MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination), founded by Bollywood star Farhan Akhtar. 

All participants will receive a certificate, a t-shirt and a finisher’s medal. Refreshments will also be provided.  The final date for registration is 13th August, 2015 or as soon as spots are filled, whichever is earlier.
