About Shanghai Running
Shanghai Running is a small group of running enthusiasts living in Shanghai. We are all active runners, including marathon and ultra-marathon athletes. We noted that in comparison with other big international cities in Asia, Shanghai has only very few organized run events - in essence the Shanghai Marathon and the Jinqiao 8k race - and there is a large demand for races and running centered activities.
We organized our first race in autumn last year, with a very short lead time and promoted only by word of mouth and had no problems getting 100 registrations. In the end, due to bad weather, only 70 people showed up. But we still regard this as quite a success. The feedback we got from the participants encouraged us to continue and develop future races.
