Criteria for Confirmation

Entry to the Timed 10K race category is only under Charity running places via Event’s official Philanthropy Partner, India Cares Foundation, except limited running places kept aside for young runners, as elaborated below. You must have fulfilled the requirements mentioned below, under each criterion, in order to apply for the timed 10K race category. Please go through all details mentioned in this overleaf and the Application Form before submitting your application.

Your entry to the Timed 10K Run category will be confirmed based on the ‘confirmation criteria’ explained in details below.

1] Timing Certificate:

‘Applicants’ please note-

You must have participated in a distance running event which fulfils the following requirements-

  • The running event must have been conducted within the period of 24 months preceding Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2017 race day, i.e. 19th November 2017.
  • Timing of only Marathon (42.195 km), 25 km, Half Marathon (21.097 km), and 10 km distances will be considered for Timed 10K race category. Timing certificate of a recognized timed relay race, where an individual covers a distance of minimum 10 km, will be considered to qualify for Timed 10K race category. The timing cut-offs for timed runners are given below. Photocopy of applicable timing certificate needs to be submitted along with the application.
  • The course is measured either by an accredited IAAF-AIMS measurer using the calibrated bicycle method http://aims-worldrunning.org/measurement/MeasurementOfRoadRaceCourses.pdf;or by a local state athletic association representative using a GPS measurement. Measurement by GPS device has been found to underestimate course length by approximately 200m over a half marathon distance so the target reading for a GPS-measured half marathon should be 1% more than the advertised distance, i.e. 21.31km. Equivalent GPS-measured target lengths for other race distances would be: 10km: 10.1km; 20km: 20.2km; 25km: 25.25km; Marathon: 42.62km. The measurement report must be uploaded onto the official website of the event.
  • All runners are compulsorily timed using the RFID technology.
    • Timing tags must be pasted on to the bibs before handing over the running number bibs to the runners – timing tags must not be handed out loose to the runners.
    • Timing tags must be pasted on to the bibs before handing over the running number bibs to the runners – timing tags must not be handed out loose to the runners.
    • The provisional timing results are displayed on the website within 12 hours of published close hour of the race.
    • Race results should be available on the event website for a period of 24 months from the date of the event
  • Outside of running events promoted by Procam International (viz. the Tata Consultancy Services World 10K Bengaluru, the Tata Mumbai Marathon and the Tata Steel Kolkata 25K), THE AIRTEL DELHI HALF MARATHON DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY RACE AS AN OFFICIAL QUALIFIER and no advantage may be sought by any participant claiming a finish time from any such race.
