New Delhi, India — India has had its annual marathon on November 1 and, after a long and grueling schedule, this year’s race was more of the same, but the marathoners have more to prove than ever.
In this race, the field is set to be full of world-class runners who will be aiming for a record of the most marathon time ever crossed in one place.
The race was the second race of its kind in the Indian capital, which has long been known as the “walled city” due to the barriers erected by Indian soldiers to prevent Indian civilians from entering.
But the crowds were huge, with more than 10 million spectators coming out for the marathon.
The race’s main course was a two-mile walk from the national stadium, and spectators lined up along the route in the city center, and then began streaming into the national football stadium, where the match between India and Bangladesh was being played.

But the match was postponed after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi banned the country from holding the match due to security concerns.
After India won the match in the last minute of the match, fans poured into the stadium, cheering their team on as they celebrated the victory with chants of “Olympic hero”.
The first part of the marathon was scheduled to run for about an hour, but some spectators complained about the length of the course, which was the equivalent of more than an entire marathon.
They said the course was too short and they would prefer to run a shorter distance.
The first section of the race is also known as “the walled town,” which has become a rallying cry for the Indian government in recent years to ensure that the country doesn’t get bogged down by terrorism.
India’s military erected a series of barriers along the walled-city route in 2012, which prevents civilians from being able to enter the city during peak tourist season.
The barriers also limit the movement of people, which in turn makes it difficult for local residents to gather in one spot.
