The 2018 edition of the richest race in India — Mumbai Marathon– with a prize money worth 405,000 dollars came to a conclusion on Sunday with Ethiopia’s Soloman Deksisa winning it. Another Ethiopian, Shumit Akalnaw became the first runner-up, while Joshua Kipkorir from Kenya came second.

The Tata Mumbai Marathon is being promoted as the largest marathon in Asia and also as the largest mass participation sports event in the continent. Mumbai Marathon, which this year celebrated its 15th edition, saw ‘dabbawalas’ participate in it, to promote their recently launched ‘Roti Bank’ initiative.

At least 12 permanently disabled defence officials participated in the Mumbai Marathon to sensitise people about the issues concerning the jawans and officers like them.
