VDHM has launched a brand new route for this years event (out and back course, not loop), and I might add that this looks very interesting, and certainly more welcome that the route from previous years. It now starts from near Nehru park in Chanakyapuri, goes around the Safdurjung airport area, next passing near Lodi gardens, on to India gate, towards Janpath, and back from Windsor place. I still see a flyover around Aurobindo Marg.
So overall, more running under shade, later in October than previous years. I am excited.
I hope they start the race a bit earlier too, last few years have seen starts at 7:30 am.
