Marathon Time: Run, Run, Run


Serious runners in Dongguan are getting more and more opportunities to practice in real races, without having to travel too far afield. Two half marathon races, the 2015 Dongguan Gold Marathon and Dongguan Humen half Marathon were held on November 8 and 22 at Tongsha Reservoir and Weiyuan Island, Humen respectively, attracting 5,000 entrants each. Crystal Hung, 25 years old, who ran the Gold Marathon said, “The marathon was great; I love running and managed to do it in a time of one hour and 25 minutes!” On April 2, 2016, Dongguan’s biggest ever half marathon is scheduled to start at Songshan Lake, which will have an estimated 42,000 runners taking part, including numerous Chinese ‘celebrities’.
