    Procam International, the event organiser, has put in a refund policy for those runners who want to opt out.

    Currently, 90 teams fielded by 62 corporate entities have registered to run comprising of more than 2500 employees from these companies. Head of Procam International said they were going ahead with the preparations in full swing with the hope that they would be able to convince the court.

    The high court had issued the notice by taking cognisance of a letter written by Indian Medical Association to Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal, seeking postponement of the marathon as the air quality in the national capital was poor and unsafe.
