Q: Who has run a marathon, half marathon, or ultra in China? If so, where and when?

I have run a half marathon in Zhuhai and one at Disney in Hong Kong, but want to try other places.

I ran to catch a bus once but that was long ago, before I realized they come every 5 minutes.

I've run half M's in Bris and Townsville.  I ran a full one in Canberra.

The best place is the Gold Coast because the course is real flat.

You missed the one in Suzhou by 2 months... It's all flat, but the view is pretty. I think Wuxi  had one not a long time ago. Both are annual. Shanghai marathon is at the middle of the autumn, so it won't be very hot nor cold, just perfect. Air pollution might vary.

I just took part in the Great Wall Half-Marathon last, last weekend. They have a full, half and fun run each year. Apparently it's one of the toughest races in the world - and I'd have to agree Tongue

Cheating on a marathon, why am I not surprised. Peasant mentality with development too fast.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
