NEW DELHI: Elite runners brushed off poor air quality and a surge in coronavirus cases on Sunday in India’s capital for the Delhi Half Marathon, one of the country’s first major sporting events since the pandemic started.

Forty-seven professional runners hit the 21-kilometre (13.1-mile) course in the men’s and women’s event, while amateur participants raced between Wednesday and Sunday to prevent overcrowding.
