<p style="line-height:19.1875px;color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:sans-serif;">After being inspired by the spectacle of the London Marathon, Procam International believed that the unique energy of Mumbai could be harnessed in the form of a road race. The first race was held in 2004, then titled as the Standard Chartered Mumbai International Marathon. With the global positioning having been well established in the inaugural year itself, the word ‘International’ was no longer required to be used; thus the event title of today – the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. The race became an IAAF Silver Label Road Race in 2009. The IAAF went on to recognize the race as an IAAF Gold Label Road Race in 2010, 2011, 2012. In 2005 the Standard [[File:Mm2.jpg|thumb|274px]]Chartered Mumbai Marathon was included as one of the legs of "The Greatest Race on Earth", an event sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank. The other three legs of this four-marathon race were the Singapore Marathon, the Nairobi Marathon and the Hong Kong Marathon. Since its first edition, the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon has stood true to the 4 pillars of marathon – international pride and prestige to the host city, health and fitness, communal harmony and charity. Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon is now recognized as India’s largest charity platform for non-profit organizations to race funds for their projects. Over ₹90 crores (USD 17 million) have been raised by non-profits from year 2004 to year 2013. The first race in 2004 had 22,000 participants with ₹1.44 Crores (USD $269,000) raised for charity. Both the numbers rose drastically over the coming years with 30,000 people running in 2007 and ₹7.94 Crores(USD $1,490,000) raised for charity. The 2013 edition hosted 40,000 runners with ₹17.9 Crores (USD $3,330,000) raised for over 232 NGOs.</p>
