According to the organizer, the half-marathon track still surrounds the coastal green promenade - Haicang Avenue, and has been optimized and upgraded. The starting point is adjusted to the intersection of Xinggang Road and Jiaosong Road, and the climbing point at the turning point is canceled. The track is smoother, which is more conducive to the participants to create good results in this golden PB track. The finish line entered the stadium of Haicang Sports Center for the first time, which is more ornamental and ceremonial.
In addition, a 6.6-kilometer healthy run will be added to this event. At the event site, runners who form teams in different ways, such as individuals, parents and children, and friends, are accompanied by beautiful scenery all the way on the track, running happily all the way, feeling the strong atmosphere of the marathon, and practicing a healthy lifestyle. The picture of the whole family running has also become the unique scenery of Haicang Avenue.
