Many community members successfully participated in the Tata Mumbai Marathon held on January 19, 2020, with Vishal Bhansali, Siddharth Mehta and Nihir Mehta completing the gruelling Full Marathon of 42 km.
It was the 9th consecutive full marathon for Vishal, who completed the distance in 3 hrs and 52 mins 35 seconds, a career best time, that he said he managed “with full support from family & friends” and thanks to the “overwhelming crowd support and weather”.
For Siddharth Mehta, it was his first full marathon, having participated only in the half marathon previously, and he completed it in 4 hours and 23 mins. Nihir Mehta also ran the full marathon, achieving a timing of 5 hours and 13 minutes.
A number of others also successfully completed the Half Marathon.
The marathon also saw Late Dhaval Mehta, who was Coordinator and Trustee of Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care (SRLC), which is now the highest fundraiser in the history of the Mumbai Marathon, being honoured with the title ‘Change Legend’ at #TMM2020. The NGO had as many as 50 Corporate Partners for this year’s marathon.
Dr Bijal Mehta, who represented SRLC at a pre-marathon press conference recalled his contribution, saying, “Dhaval had decided that we would try to be the highest contributor in this year’s run as well. One day before his death, we had 47 corporates on board, but he made some calls and got 50 corporates to contribute.”
