For the Delhi Half Marathon, traffic restrictions have been put into place on over a dozen roads, including Rafi Kidwai Marg, Lodhi Road, Bhishma Pitamah Marg, Janpath Rajpath and Parliament Street.
This will be the 13th edition of the race, which is one of the top Half Marathons in the world. Because of the Indian Medical Association calling for its cancellation due to the rising pollution levels, the Half Marathon has been mired in controversy this year.
