Course / Route Map
The Delhi Half Marathon route goes back to the inaugural 2005 route (with some changes) which started and finished at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Reports indicate that the route might be a no flyover route, no better time to pull off a fast time than this year!
For the last 2-3 years the route had changed to a Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri start/finish because of all the renovation work going on at the JN Stadium.
JN Stadium – Lodi Road – Mathura Road – Dr Zakir Hussain Marg – India Gate – Rajpath – Janpath – Raisina Road – Mandi House – and then back on this route
