Beijing International Marathon 2007

Recommended Posts

so many people are taking part in the full marathon as compared to the half.. twice the number

Ya..it makes economic sense in light of the entry fees.

21km : Local - 30RMB, Foreign - USD40

42km : Local - 40RMB, Foreign - USD60

Chinese is smart mah..double the distance only pay 33% more. Value for money..Only finsher of 42km gets towel, certificate plus other goodies.

I guess you guys have seen that the route has changed . If not then better check teh official website . SOme websites are still showing the old route .

Website Notice: Route Change

Due to the fact that a major national event will be held at the Great Hall of the People and Tiananmen Square on October 21, 2007, the Chinese Athletic Association, after serious consideration and extensive negotiation with the State Sports General Administration of China and several units of the Beijing Municipal Government, has officially decided to change this year's marathon starting point, as well as part of the race route. Now, both the marathon Start and Finish will be located at the National Olympic Sports Center; and the new marathon route will be set according to this change.

The change of the route better reflects the theme of the complete marathon event –Running through Modern & Historical Beijing—as the new route not only passes by one of Beijing’s most famous parks– the Yuan Dynasty Wall Relic Park, but also allows runners a “sneak peek” at some of the newly-constructed 2008 Olympic Games venues. Participants will now run a route which passes by the National Stadium, better known as the “Bird’s Nest”; the National Aquatics Center, also called the "Water Cube"; as well as the Olympic Archery and Hockey venues.Event organizers believe that this route will showcase not only the existing culture of Beijing, but also present runners and spectators with the numerous and marvelous modern changes that the city has undergone in preparation for next year’s Olympic Games.

Yo buddy Halftimer,

All the best to your run in Beijing International Marathon.

Now I know what DO meant by backdoor. Enjoy your run and remember to pace yourself. Don't "chiong" to hard. Come back with a 4:15 to 4:30 timing ok ? Anything less than that is a big bonus this year. Remember drink salt water the night before and a bottle of 100 plus before the race start.

God bless and safe journey.

Cheers !

    • facts (published)... just eat 🍿.... SNOC is has a stake in the pending of the Court's decision...legal matters from SNOC against SOH were already in placed..."pending on the outcome of the ongoing Trial"...   if the Truth is 2min or 700m (Liew) vs 7min or more than 2 mins (Soh) is confirmed...then somebody is going to be answerable to why SOH was not selected to SEA GAMES 2019...to ensure that Mr Soh's allegations were "fully investigated and the truth be determined.".. everyone wants the "truth" to be determined...SNOC also wants the "truth" about its own investigations are not wrong but is the truth... as for SA's...it is totally different tiff.. more on what SA Executive Director Syed Abdul Maik Aljunied alleged defamation on SOH...so far SOH has won over SA (on some administrative documentation submission on his character that "has bad records" but so far delay until failure to produce evidence)...then SA Legal Team quitted and Director Aljunied had to use his own legal Team...more to admit what he said or claims were wrong meanwhile, SA President and Management Team had stepped down...tomorrow (Sept 25) shall be SA new Election (2020)...Soh's choice of SA Management Committee...will there be a nomination of SOH for SEA GAMES 2021..."nothing more than a GOLD result"... Winning against SA has a bearing on the outcome of somebody who quoted, "there have been numerous instances where Soh has displayed conduct that falls shorts of the standards of attitude and behaviour that the SNOC expects and holds its athhletes to"...what if there were no such records from SA on the standards of attitude and behaviour of SOH to start with...no evidence of SOH's breaching the rules, standards or attitudes...so if no, then why there is every REASON WHY SOH IS AND SHOULD NOT BE SELECTED FOR SEA GAMES 2019.. just eat 🍿....lah...it is going to be a lengthy one....maybe this Trial may extend till beyond SEA Games 2021....and guess who will be very upset/happy once again...SOH, SA, Liew, SNOC or Aljunied?
    • It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation  of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably.  My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship.  That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won.  I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley slowed down to a crawl and that cost him a medal. In his estimation, even if Ashley has really slowed down, it did not cost him a medal because his finishing time was a bit off from the medal timing.  SA probably slighted because they were the one who nominated Ashley for the award and raised the stake with its 'problem kid' to cease and desist. Of cos, SRY was never going to just roll over. And his further comments prompted Ashley to sue him for defamation. And here we are.  It all seems a little superfluous to me but of cos I'm not the one who feels he's been defamed. 
    • I think only Ashley himself really know if he did really purposely slow down or not.  While I admire SRY on his achievement and humility even as a champion, there could be chance he may have observed wrongly especially from a distance. Then this whole issue becomes just a misunderstanding.
