Champion Roster

A bright Sunday morning in September 1983 saw thousands of people participating in the very first Pune Marathon – a run for fun and fitness. Within just three years it has grown into a great vent on the international sports calendar.
The first time a balding Swedish School teacher Tommy Pesson beat all opposition to the finish line.
The marathon lovingly remembers the Tanzanian soldier Stewan Marwa who almost missed talking part and went on to win. And our own long distance runner, Savio D’souza, who overcame physical setback to win the race !
It has indeed been a tribute to men’s achievements,a saga of success, a test of endurance. Let’s go back a little and relive the unforgettable moments of tears and triumph.
