A mo­ment in time:

Run­ning into hap­pi­ness

China Daily - - MOSAIC -

On Jan 1, 1986, res­i­dents in Shang­hai braved the chilly weather, run­ning to mark the New Year. In re­cent years, the run­ning trend has gripped China. More than 1,100 long-dis­tance events were held in the coun­try last year, at­tract­ing nearly 5 mil­lion run­ners from across the world, a sharp rise from the 22 held in 2011. To mark the New Year, on Mon­day, run­ners (right) passed the Na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Shang­hai, the venue of the China In­ter­na­tional Im­port Expo in Novem­ber.
