Course / Route Map
The Mumbai Marathon route got an architectural marvel with the inclusion of the Bandra-World Sea Link as part of the marathon route from the year 2010. The Marathon starts and finishes at the majestic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). There is a separate start for the half marathon, the event starting at Bandra and finishing at CST, a change necessitated by the need to avoid convergence of the runners in the two categories and give the full marathon participants a clear route from start to finish.
