“The Delhi High Court has ruled that the Delhi Half Marathon will go on as scheduled for Nov. 19 despite the Indian capital being covered in thick brown smog due to toxic air pollution.
Race organizers plan to have two medical camps, 100 nurses, 75 doctors and a local hospital available for those in need of attention during the race. Several parts of the course will be doused with water and various mist fans will be installed. The Indian Medical Association asked for the race to be postponed due to the air quality but the high court has ruled otherwise.” Sports Illustrated
