Big Group, Little Run

02_15_In Brief_Big Group, Little RunIn this fast-paced and stressful society, people just need a little encouragement to pick up a better lifestyle. This is the reason why a 5K micro marathon club called “Weima” has become popular throughout the country. First established by 18 running Shenzhen enthusiasts through an online forum in July 2014, the club has expanded rapidly to Dongguan, Guangzhou, Hubei, Chongqing and Chengdu. During the first run in Dongguan, over 300 people gathered in Dongguan’s Botanical Garden at 7 a.m. After over two months continuously running every Sunday, the Micro Marathon Dongguan Rainbow Team officially registered as an NGO with Nancheng Sports Park on January 18. The next step of the Dongguan team will be setting up groups around town.
