2014 Today(October 19,2014)
We continued the topic yesterday about Beijing Marathon 2014.
At 6:00AM,we departed Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel.And we
took the subway down south,and then got to Tiananmen Square at around
We took the photos and videos there.Of course,for the coming
Promotion Video of Great Wall of China Marathon 2015 which would be
released by the end of this month,we filmed Mr.Shigematsu a lot.We
will use his video for a few second at the promotion video.
The Race started from 8AM.When all the runners departed the
Tiananmen Square,we went to the entrance area of the Finish.We
cheered to every runners from the roadside for from 10:15 to 12. We
shouted so loudly non-stop to every runners JIAYOU,JIAYOU!
We also had a cheer group who helped to count the rank of the women
runners from 1 to 193.We shouted loudly to them one by one in
Chinese and in English who passed by us at the entrance
of Finishing Area.During this range there are over 8000 male runners
We were extremely happy to see Mr.DANIEL LANDSKROENER to the Finish Area
at around 3:30!He is so great,his second full marathon!Do you
believe that he ran the Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1,2014
with more than 9 hours and 30 minutes?
As we said in the very early that all the runners who have run the
Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1,then when he or she goes to
run the other ordinary marathon,they could always be in the front rank!
Mr.Shigematsu wore that Japanese style robe with the meaning of
Friendship between China and Japan even with a small Japanese flag
on the robe.He felt very happy.He worried too much before the race
among most of the Chinese runners for the Beijing Marathon.
Well,everything went so well,we drank a lot of beer tonight at the
dinner time from around 8PM.Because enough sleeping is very
necessary after the 42KM running.
Mr.Shigematsu ran and talked with other Japanese runners for around
6KM,more Japanese runners who ran the Beijing Marathon today would
also run the Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1,2015!
From what we see today that the overseas runners at Beijing Marathon
would be around 300 people,we took the whole video of all the
runners at the race today!About 1% of the runners wore the
masks.Only one was heavily equipped with the gas mask.Funny,we think
that was his cosplay! :)
