Standard Chartered Mumbai
Flying Cursor Interactive & Rickshaw
To take the Mumbai Marathon beyond the streets and into the hearts of Mumbaikars.
They got instagramers to capture the flavours of the city.
From flamingos of Sewri to the vintage Irani hotels, from Victorian heritage to the culture of the streets, they captured them all under #RunForAReason.
They also shot a few of them while they were clicking away, and made 30 seconder films.
With the support of Radio Mirchi, whose RJs enthusiastically urged listeners to pick a reason to run, Standard Chartered got a sizeable number of Mumbaikars giving their reasons. And through cup rings, saucer tags and tent cards, Café Coffee Day and Barista urged the youth who frequent coffee shops to give their reasons to run.
Also, over 500 Dabbawallahs sported “Run For a Reason t-shirts, which, along with grabbing eye-balls, garnered several more reasons to run. A free film screening was arranged at PVR for underprivileged children, who were also given t-shirts. Their smiles only reinforced our belief that every privileged Mumbaikar should have a reason to run for his/her city
The instagrammed pictures found their way on ground too. A 600-ft marquee wall filled with pictures taken by the instagrammers was installed on the day of the marathon at the flag off.
Also, a giant hoarding that thanked Mumbai for giving them reasons to run was put up at Patel Bridge, Marine Drive. Which they think is India’s first instagram hoarding.
