Wuhan Marathon 2018 will start at 7:30 A.M. on April 15. The race route is the same as in 2017, fea­tur­ing the city's core land­scapes like the Yangtze River and East Lake.

The or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee re­leased the lat­est event in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing its medals for all fin­ish­ers on March 14. The medals ,con­tain­ing pure gold, are de­signed full of Wuhan el­e­ments, in­clud­ing the col­ors of blue, yel­low ,and sil­ver and a sketch of the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge vividly por­tray­ing "the most beau­ti­ful marathon route" around rivers ,lakes, and bridges. This year, all fin­ish­ers can have their par­tic­i­pa­tion medals en­graved with words of their choice free of charge thanks to the race's spon­sors.

In ad­di­tion, the Wuhan Marathon or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee will also co­op­er­ate with Wuhan City Card to launch a free Wuhan Marathon memorial smart card. The memorial card is de­signed with the city land­marks like the Yel­low Crane Tower, Yangtze River Bridge, and the Tor­toise Hill TV Tower. Ev­ery con­tes­tant will be of­fered a free memorial card with a stored value of RMB 10 to as­sist their needs for pub­lic trans­porta­tion to ar­rive at the race venue.

Three plum blos­soms, Wuhan's city flower, adorn the run­way, im­ply­ing that the spirit of Wuhan Marathon run­ners is as re­silient and un­yield­ing as the plum blos­som.
