Songshan Lake international sport event

Dongguan’s new found love for running, particularly in marathons, is set to continue. And this time they are going global. After the BWF Sudirman Cup Championships last year, Dongguan is organizing another international sports event on March 27, the Dongguan Songshan Lake International Marathon.

The event welcomes over 15,000 runners from all over the country and other parts of the world to feel the marathon spirit. About 2,500 of the competitors will challenge in a 42 km long run, while the rest will compete in three shorter events, a half marathon, mini marathon, and a carnival fun run only five km in distance. Managed by Wisdom Sports Group, the event brings international standards such as pacers and prizes up to 200,000 US dollars.

The marathon will see professional competitors from afar afield as the USA, Europe, and Kenya.
