Beach half marathon opens in Tang­shan

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - ENTERPRISE -

The third Tang­shan In­ter­na­tional Trav­el­ling Beach Half Marathon kicked off at Tang­shan, He­bei Prov­ince on July 23, draw­ing the par­tic­i­pa­tion of 1,000 run­ners world­wide to ex­pe­ri­ence the run­ning com­pe­ti­tion on the iconic beach side. Sang Ni­co­las Kipro­tich from Kenya seized the vic­tory in the men’s team, and the win­ner from the women’s team was China’s Zhang Li­jun.

Dif­fer­ent from or­di­nary marathons held on roads, the par­tic­i­pants of this marathon had the tough and joy­ful ex­pe­ri­ence of run­ning on the soft sand.
