MOUNTAIN IN THE CITY MARATHON – 3rd Edition – Kharghar Hills ‘is Mumbai’s First and only Hill Half Marathon Event.

The event is aimed at Runners who want to experience Running on a Hill Station elevated Road without going too far from their city.

We are organizing the event on 01st October 2017, in the midst of the Rainy Season so that everyone can enjoy the Lush Green Mountains and an awesome weather with the most beautiful view of the city from above the mountain and possibly some waterfalls on the route to make your experience even more awesome.

Kharghar Hills is a protected Mountain with a beautiful forest on it. The roads are good Tar roads perfect for Running.

The Race will start from Base of Kharghar Hills premises and enough Water Counters are kept on the route for runners.

Direction and Kilometer Markers along with good number of volunteers will ensure a good experience for all Runners.

Runners have an option of reaching the venue via Train, Bus or Car. Venue is just 15 mins walk from Kharghar and CBD Belapur Railway Station.

All Details about Travelling will be provided to Registered Runners on email.

This Marathon has been planned by ‘Children Toy Foundation ‘in association with “VIOLAT Sports Events Pvt. Ltd.”. The NGO has been in existence for past 34yrs and it has been our aim to provide underprivileged kids with a chance to play with toys which will not only make them enjoy the toy but also increase their creativity. We have Toy Vans all across India going out and helping make the Childhood of underprivileged Children a little fun and filled with happiness.

The entire money raised from this event will go for sustaining ongoing projects and expansion program’s as follows:

· Setting up more toy/game libraries and also guiding others to set up such libraries. We have already setup such 298 toy/game libraries.

· Running our Khelvigyan projects. We have such 4 mobile and 2 static programs. The concept is extension of toy/game library projects where trained teachers take care of holistic development of a child by adding value added programs like story- telling, kraft, puppets etc., which is more joyful learning through play.

· Do interschool, youth and family contests in fun and mind games.

· Expansion programs are to set up toy/game libraries in villages, toy vans in all the states and expand into inter- state/ global idea for which we have earned international acclaims.
