The Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon: More Than Just a Race 🏃‍♂️🌟

In the world of sports, some events transcend their original purpose, shaping society in remarkable ways. The Delhi Half Marathon, introduced in 2005 by Procam International, the masterminds behind the Mumbai Marathon, is a prime example of this phenomenon.

This prestigious World Athletics Elite Label Road Race has evolved into one of the world's premier half marathons. It's graced by legends like Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge, considered one of the greatest marathoners ever. But its impact goes far beyond the running track.

The Delhi Half Marathon has been a catalyst for transformation. It ignited a passion for road running among women in the capital, encouraged millions in northern India to embrace healthier lifestyles, and rekindled the spirit of giving.

This event has solidified its position as one of India's largest sporting philanthropy platforms, raising over INR 77 crore for 280 Civil Society Organizations since its inception. It's not just a race; it's a force for good, touching countless lives and championing diverse causes.

The AIMS-certified race unfolds on one of the world's fastest courses, with numerous top 100 records in both men's and women's categories. It's a stage for global running stars and a springboard for Indian talents.

In 2020, Avinash Sable made history as the first Indian to complete a half marathon in under 61 minutes, a milestone that paved the way for a silver medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

International Elite performances have been nothing short of spectacular. Ethiopian Amedework Walelegn set a new course record for men, while compatriot Yalemzerf Yehualaw achieved the 10th best time in the world for women, both in 2020.

This event has garnered support from global sporting icons like Kenenisa Bekele, Paula Radcliffe, and Carmelita Jeter, serving as International Event Ambassadors. It symbolizes the spirit of Delhi and India while inspiring us to surpass expectations and redefine limits.

With a prize pool of USD 280,000, the event includes a 10K run, the Great Delhi Run (5K), the Senior Citizens’ Run (3K), and the Champions with Disability (3K), promoting inclusivity and offering everyone a chance to shine.

Join us in the Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon, where running is more than just a race; it's a transformative experience that shapes our communities and our world. 🌍🏆
