"This is my fourth full marathon and I feel proud of it," he screamed after completing the race in nearly five hours.

Pune-based Rathi has participated in seven previous half marathons in Mumbai. "I have been practicing for the marathon for the last three months. Age has never been a hindrance to my participation," he said.
