Beijing United Family Hospital (BJU) has proudly supported the Beijing Marathon as an official registration channel and the exclusive medical sponsor for five years. To kick off the 2019 Beijing Marathon, Beijing United Family Hospital (BJU) is organizing a 10 km fun run on Tuesday, September 17, at 7 pm in the Olympic Forest Park. This is a session mainly for expats but all running enthusiasts are welcome. Read on to find out more details.
As usual, BJU will invite a health professional (either a nutritionist or a doctor this time) to give relevant advice on questions related to running a marathon. We will also invite experienced runners to be our team leaders to set the pace of the running group.
BJU will have 20 pairs of Professional Running Socks FITS (at a market price of RMB 399 per pair) to give away to the participants on the day.
If you are aiming to complete the Beijing Marathon this year, this is a perfect opportunity for you to add a social aspect to your training. If you are a beginner, don’t worry – you can also do a fast walk. It’s all about getting good exercise and having fun.
