Last two years have been challenging and pushed us all to the limit in every way possible. As India rises to the clarion call for resurgence of hope and belief, Tata Mumbai Marathon returns with its 18th edition. Over 55,000 participants will take to Mumbai streets on the third Sunday falling on January 15, 2023, to participate in the iconic Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023. This is a momentous day when the city bursts to life in a celebration of #HarDilMumbai, showcasing a beacon of hope and generosity from Mumbai to the world.

The Tata Mumbai Marathon is recognised as transformational, transcending sport to a different level altogether. And for the first-time, the event team Procam International along with the International Institute of Sports Management have curated a special report which measures the economic, social, and health impacts of this iconic race to the city and country. The report highlights how the race has been a pioneer in changing India from a spectator sports nation into a participative sports nation, how its efforts have led to a cascading effect for the sport of running in India; how it has had a positive effect on the ecosystem, its impact on the social outlook towards running and sports and its dedication to social causes and charity.

The event has received a warm welcome and support of the Government of Maharashtra, the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, the Ministry of External Affairs, the Ministry of Home Affairs, MCGM, Mumbai Police, Sports Authority of India, the Athletics Federation of India, World Athletics (WA), Association of International Marathons & Distance Races (AIMS), Global Sports Communication, and a host of brands and businesses coming together to bring glory back to this event.
