“The thirst you feel in your throat and lungs will be gone minutes after the race is over. The pain in your legs within days, but the glory of your finish will last forever.”

- Anonymous

Every long distance runner who has ever completed a race would stand by this statement, be it a man or a woman, a teenager or a senior citizen, white or black, an amateur runner or a professional. Nothing satiates a runner’s appetite like crossing the finish line of the race.

At the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon, this feeling can be seen in abundance as nearly 50,000 runners from various backgrounds and nationalities descend on the nation’s capital. This year, too, the 20th of November will see the city host the 11th edition of the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon (ADHM), listed under the respected Gold Label Road Race by the IAAF.

Jabong will be ADHM’s official Retail Partner

With over a week to go for the event, runners will be queuing up at stores to get their gear. It is times like these that online stores come as a huge relief. E-commerce giant Jabong has continued its long-term association with ADHM as it’s official Retail Partner.

With a primary focus on sportswear and a huge range of sporting gear and apparel, Jabong and ADHM have all the markings of a perfect partnership. Runners and runners-in-training can shop for training equipment from top sports brands including ASICS, Nike, New Balance, Adidas, and PUMA. 

Being the official Retail Partners of the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon, the e-commerce majors will also be present in the exposition and throughout the race. At the expo, which will be held at the NSIC from 16th to 19th November, you can collect your official race bibs from the Jabong stall.

Fun contests, competitions and more

A lot of people use such races to bring to light important causes and at ADHM 2016, they will be rewarded through the Jabong ‘Run in Costume’ competition. On race day, individuals and groups can dress up and run in costume. Participants will be judged based on their attire and the cause they are supporting and win prizes.

After crossing the finish line, tired participants can relax and unwind themselves at the Jabong ‘Breathe Zone’, where a plethora of fun activities is planned for them. A dedicated nutrition expert will also be giving out special tips and medical aids at the Zone.

Jabong has also roped in legendary Indian rock band Indian Ocean to perform at the event. So, with Jabong and the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon, you can safely say that the fun never stops.
