Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2009 Registration Open!

Just got the breaking news on the registrations opening up for the Delhi Half marathon from a friend at Delhi Runners, and believe me, I was really surprised beyond my wits on hearing this news. Since the press conference for the event launch is tomorrow (i.e. Aug 27th), I was expecting the Delhi Half Marathon registrations to start right after that, maybe by Aug 28th, but for this to happen a day before the event launch is a real surprise.

Register Now!!! Registrations close on Oct 4th, but my guess is that the available places will run out pretty soon, maybe within a couple of weeks, so hurry!

I have been given an invite to attend the event launch in Delhi tomorrow, so that should be a fun experience which I am looking forward to. Expecting to see some sports personalities at the launch. Jackie Joyner Kersee was there last year, so maybe some greats this year too.

It is good to see that ADHM folks have made the timing chip compulsory for the Half Marathon. Finally, some real statistics will be available after the run, instead of half-baked numbers from previous years.

I believe the ADHM folks just setup the website today (I checked yesterday, and there were no updates), and brought it to working shape so that when the event launch happens tomorrow, it will all be working and people can register. But then, there are crazy folks out there sniffing for clues, and well, we have this breaking news one day before the event launch.
