y 9 o’clock in the morning, all participants, guests and the media had gathered at the experience center of chongming sanxiang forestcurio, a new development on the island by sanxiang impression. warming up while breathing in the refreshing air, every one was excited.
runners were lined up based on their chosen activity: 5km happy run or 10 km athletic run and cheerleading began on 9: 45.

health and happiness first
running to embrace nature
running past fun and motivating banners
each step forward was accompanied by bright sunlight and refreshing air. banners along the way were at once motivating and amusing.
for health and environmental awareness
let us run !
at 11:30, the last runner ran past the finish line. winners received their certificates of completion, medals and prizes. the organiser had prepared generous prizes: garmin forerunner 235 running watches, adidas adizero adios boost, and compressport calf sleeves respectively for first, second and third prize winners.
sports are about skills as much as speed
