55 Chinese runners came to Athens to run

 

In the 2013 race, we arranged 55 Chinese runners to go and run the race. They were from Shanghai/Shanxi/Fujian and Zhengzhou city. Every Chinese runner completed the race. The oldest runner is 79 years old, and finished in 4 hours and 40 minutes. The best runner finished the race in 3 hours and 20 minutes, this was his first full marathon. Reporter Wumin from Morning Post was also invited by the organizers to attend the race.

The way the Chinese runners do the warm-up surpried the Greek newspaper reporters.
