Well begun is half done" is in short
the success story of the Pune International Marathon. The
annual event billed as the country's richest race has certainly
became the show piece combining the glamour and the glitter
unsurpassed in the annals of sports.
Making a humble beginning in the year 1983
the event has flourished and has reached the pinnacle of glory
due mainly to the charisma and dynamism of Mr.Suresh Kalmadi
(MP). The vision and foresight of Mr.Kalmadi saw the creation
of Pune International Marathon Trust (PIMT) which provided
the firm foundation to the Pune event. Donning the mantle
of PIMT the event went from strength to strength having caught
the imagination of Punekars who has many first to their credit
in the sporting arena of the country.
