I. Charity Running Places

Open 10K race category registration is only open through charity, except limited running places available under Women’s Criteria. Participating non-profits have a limited number of charity bibs available with them. These bibs are unique as they can be used for any race category, including Open 10K, a participant wishes to participate in and are available on making a premium donation to these NGOs. For details related to charity running places, please refer to or email at

Participants are required to visit the Philanthropy Partner website and contact an NGO to enquire for a bib in the Open 10K category. They would then have to make a donation to the NGO. Please DO NOT DONATE DIRECTLY on the NGO page for a bib. After you have spoken with the NGO representative and decided the donation amount, the NGO will share a unique link for an online payment for the bib. Alternately, you can send a cheque in favour of United Way of Mumbai and your information to the NGO. The NGO will guide you further and give you a unique voucher code to register online for Open 10K category.
