Following the tremendous success of the first three editions of the SBI Green Marathon, the country’s largest financial services group, State Bank of India, and Mirchi, India’s leading city-centric music and entertainment company, proudly announce the conclusion of the 4th edition of the Green Marathon on 24th March in Ahmedabad and Jaipur at GIFT City Gandhinagar and Sawai Mansingh Stadium, respectively.

The SBI Green Marathon is India’s biggest eco-friendly marathon, encouraging participants to embrace a greener, fitter, and healthier lifestyle. All runners received an organic T-shirt and plant-able BIB as part of their participation. With various categories such as 5K, 10K, and 21K, the marathon catered to diverse running enthusiasts, while promoting sustainability as an essential lifestyle.

The 4-city marathon event commenced on the 17th of March 2024 in Mumbai and Bhopal and was followed by ahmedabad and Jaipur on the 24th of March. The first phase of the event saw a huge number of participants across the two cities. The “Run for Green” theme recognizes every participating individual as agents of change for a greener globe.

The SBI Green Marathon has consistently grown in scale and impact over the years. With the number of participants increasing each year, people’s commitment to a greener, healthier lifestyle is also proportionally rising. This initiative not only raises environmental awareness but also fosters a sense of responsibility towards the planet.

Pooja Gulati, Executive Vice President & National IP Director, Entertainment Network (India) Limited, said, “Mirchi has remained focused on being associated with the running space for over two decades now. Through the Green Marathon, Mirchi and SBI have a common goal of giving Indian consumers a platform to not just focus on their health but also contribute to conserving the environment. Now in its 4th season, it is India’s biggest eco-friendly marathon and has expanded to 4 cities, including Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, and Jaipur. The property receives exponentially high interest and participation every year, making it a truly special experience. Mirchi’s robust reach and hyperlocal understanding give us the right tools to create a great experience for every runner. We look forward to building this property as one of the biggest ones in the country.”

The marathon saw active on-ground support from Mirchi RJs and ambassadors from the running community, who engaged with participants and motivated them throughout the event. In addition to the organic T-shirt and plant-able BIB, participants also enjoyed cash prizes for all categories, hot breakfast, and goodie bags, making the event even more memorable.

SBI and Mirchi partnered with Skrap, a waste management agency to recycle waste generated during the event, further emphasizing their commitment to environmental conservation. The waste collected from the marathon will be recycled by Skrap, and they will release a comprehensive report on the amount of waste recycled from an event of such scale, underlining their dedication to transparency and sustainability. The collaboration also extended to social and digital platforms, with early bird coupons and city-wise creative campaigns shared through the SBI Green Marathon Instagram handle.

As the SBI Green Marathon continues its journey towards a greener and healthier India, the focus remains on capturing the Green Marathon space, promoting the IP as a year-on-year activity, and generating organic PR for this unique initiative. With this momentum, the SBI Green Marathon looks forward to welcoming even more participants and creating a significant environmental impact in future editions.
