Runners from all walks of life in purple will soon take over the Gurugram city as Millennium City Marathon (MCM) announces its arrival along with Apollo Tyres as title partner this year and will be open for tourists, runners and locals for participation.
Fitness is the flavour that is here to stay and nothing gets better when it is spread by the believers and achievers in the fields of running. MCM is conceptualized by Abhishek Mishra, who is himself an Ultraman & Ironman Triathlete and leads his outfit Tabono Sports & Events Pvt Ltd with a vision to spread the fitness virus across all age-groups of the society.

In the 2019 edition, Tabono is also partnering with Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) to promote water conservation.

It is our pleasure to be associated with the Millennium City Marathon, which has carried out terrific work to promote running in Gurgaon in the last few years”, Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, Apollo Tyres Ltd, who’s a Marathon Runner himself, added.
