The Pune International Marathon is an annual marathon foot-race run in Pune, India. The first edition of the race was begun in 1983, and the 20th edition was held in 2005. It attracts many international participants, who compete with local and national runners in the distinct climate of the Indian subcontinent.
The event also organises a short celebrity run in which film personalities and national athletes participate and raise money for charitable causes.
Into its 21st year, this annual event attracted over 50,000 runners from India and around the world. Corporate participants also helped in this battle against HIV/AIDS by participating in the 4.5 km Race against Aids. All the money collected from this race is donated to Project Concern International – a widely respected NGO working towards HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention in Pune.
Pune Marathon 2010 was a silver jubilee edition of the event. The organisers had introduced Women's Full Marathon and Men's Half Marathon categories.
