Women can’t run a full Marathon

Update to this blog:

As per Mumbai Marathon Runners group on face the organiser of Vasai-Virar Marathon will allow women to run full 42.2kms. 🙂

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Yes this is what was told to a Fellow runner when she went to register for full marathon in the Virar Vasai Mayors marathon.  Don’t believe me. Check the website. There is only Half Marathon listed in women’s category.

You can also check the photo below.. yes the one with Milind Soman smiling.

It is  plain foolishness or insensitivity to have discrimination against women and that too in running. And I don’t need to tell you that women can run a lot longer then full marathon- just google it.

So what can you do. To start with send a email to info@vvmcmayorsmarathon.com and show your displeasure. You can also tweet about this blog  or share it on facebook. Let’s get these ignorant organizers to get their act together.

And Milind, Dude with such fan following among women and your commendable Pinkathon  initiative, do something. Tell the organisers to either take your photo down or get all the women runners in for the full real thing.
