The Mumbai Marathon is not just about running and winning the race. It is also about educating the people about the various humanitarian causes that are supported by the runners. And costumes are one of the ways to educate and spread messages about the causes for the marathon.

Here are some costumes that spoke volumes about the causes supported for the marathon this year. (All Photos/ Shadab Khan)
