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.

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 !

Kayano
