Talking to the media, race director Hugh Jones said: “It’s with great expectations globally… people are looking forward to this international race coming back. You didn’t realize that you were missing it until you felt it. I think we are going to bring back that kind of feeling to Delhi with the Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon. It’s a new-look course, but it’s similar in nature and it certainly will be as fast as the previous one. I think we are in for some good times, we’ve always had good athletes coming.”

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic), New Delhi Range Aalap Patel commented  “I know of many colleagues and seniors taking part in the Police Cup category. We enjoy working together with Procam International during the event. I hope the weather remains good and the runners stay hydrated throughout the race.”
