Mumbai Marathon: Business suits were replaced by track pants in India?s biz capital

MUMBAI: As it happened the corporate world of Mumbai left their business suits away and decided to hit the roads wearing jogging kit and sports shoes to participate in the largest marathon in South Asia.

The battalion of runners was filled with dignitaries from every sector of industry, and their successful completion was soon visible on social media, as they shared their rejuvenating story on various platforms.

HBO India managing director Monica Tata wrote on social media, ?With everyone posting their marathon achievements today, let me also put mine. Did the dream run for Isha Vidya along with my daughter Dania and we have raised so far Rs 1.8 lacs for them! With few more weeks to go before the deadline is over hopefully will cross 2 lacs! Thank you so much to all the people who have donated generously. With heartfelt gratitude and blessings from the rural kids you have helped make a life.?

Monica?s noble post was followed by film maker Kailash Koppikar?s post stating his lap timings. ?Finished the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2015 - Half Marathon in 2:13:37,? he wrote.

Grey India managing director Sunil Lulla used social media to let people know who all he dedicated this effort to. ?It was a glorious morning, with my running partners, Lazarus and Krishna. We started and finished together in 1 hour 57 mins, over 21.10 km. Lazi broke his jinx of under 2. Simply superb performance by Lazi. Great friendship progressing ahead, with Krishna sacrificing his timing to run together. This run dedicated to Amrita and Parthiv Kilachand on their 15th wedding anniversary. In addition dedicated to Children's Movement for Civic Awareness,? he wrote.

Sony Max and Sony Six executive vice president - sales Deep Drona reached his personal best and took social media to thank his well wishers. ?Dear all, thank you very much for the encouraging words I completed my 3rd SCMM and am keeping the streak of improvement going. Clocked 2:00:18 hrs,? he tweeted.

Media veteran Bharat Kapadia was proud of his feat and tweeted, ?My best timing so far for the half marathon? 2:12:28.?
