Wimbledon Champion Marion Bartoli will be the International Event Ambassador. Over 40,000 are expected to participate in the 12th edition of SCMM to be held on January 18 reported TOI.
“It gives me great joy to come to India to spread the magic of running and sport. In the last decade or so, India has witnessed a running revolution and the sport has grown manifold,” said Bartoli.
Actor John Abraham, face of the event, said, “Running has improved in India and I have seen the number of participants at SCMM increase year after year. As an actor I have always felt that one should look after the physical fitness and invest a minimum of one hour daily in some kind of sporting activity or running.”
