As a precursor to the 2014 edition of Airtel Delhi Half Marathon (ADHM) – Delhi’s largest annual sporting celebration – registrations for the event were declared open recently. On Sunday, November 23 2014, the Indian Capital will witness, once again, thousands of runners coming together to celebrate the power of perseverance and self belief by participating in a sporting event that has played an increasingly prominent role in bringing people closer to the vibrant and spirited side of Delhi.
Approximately 32,000 professional athletes, serious runners, and health and fitness enthusiasts from different corners of the globe and Delhi are expected to participate in the event. This will include many of the world’s best long distance athletes.
