Nearly 100,000 participants sign up for 2017 Beijing Marathon
Closing its registration process at the end of last week, the Beijing Marathon Race has seen 98,687 people sign up to participate in the 17th September event, an increase of 48% on last year and breaking the record number of registered entrants for a full-distance marathon race in China.
According to official data, 64,803 of the entrants have each finished a full-distance marathon within six hours over the past two years and so have been put into the A-Group in this year‘s edition of the Beijing Marathon Race.
The number of A-Group competitors has increased by 43% from last year. The B-Group, which lists entrants who have completed a half marathon within three hours over the past 18 months, numbers 33,884 applicants this year, an increase of 59% on 2016.
The public ballot entry for eligible applicants will be drawn by lottery organised by the Beijing Marathon Race with the final result to be released in the middle of August.
After the lottery, the organizing committee of the marathon will launch a charity registration entry with 500 places for applicants who are not eligible through the initial ballot. The first 500 entrants who pay the charity registration fee of CN¥ 2,000 (US$296.7), will get the chance to compete in the Beijing Marathon Race. The organising committee will donate the charity registration fee of CN¥ 1m in total (US$148,000) to five charities which are involved in the Beijing Marathon’s philanthropy project.
The Beijing Marathon was first held in 1981 and has been held every year since. It begins at Tiananmen Square and finishes at the National Olympic Sports Centre stadium.
