Community Members Successfully Complete Mumbai Marathon

 Vishal Bhansali

Many community members successfully participated in the Mumbai Marathon held on January 15, 2017, with Vishal Bhansali completing the gruelling Full Marathon of 42.2 km.

For Vishal, the result was extra special as he could go beyond his earlier marathons (he had been running the Mumbai Marathon for over a decade) and achieve a much prized time of under four hours, covering the distance in 3 hrs and 56 mins.

Recently, Vishal also took part in the Half Marathon in Delhi and clocked 1.45.29.

 Rajiv Mehta

A number of others successfully completed the Half Marathon, including Rajiv P. Mehta, who completed the distance in under two hours, returning a timing of 1:55:26.

It was a special day for Viral D. Mehta as his elder son Viransh joined him for the last 5 km and younger son Vrithik for the last 3km, all three finishing the race together. This was the sixth Half Marathon that Viral has completed, an extra special achievement as he started running in these events only in December 2015.

 Sapana Shah

It was another significant race for Amit P. Shah who completed his 9th Half Marathon – no mean achievement at 45 years of age!

For Saurabh Mody, who participated for the 11th consecutive year in the Half Marathon, the day was memorable too. He ran to raise funds for an NGO, Nanhi Kali, and generated a massive Rs 11 lakh for the cause.

Those who completed the full and half marathon include:
