Shanghai Marathon Marathon &10k
South Africa’s Stephen Mokoka has won 4 times in the past 5 years. It is a flat point-to-point course starting at the Golden Bull Square on the Bund and finishing inside the Shanghai Stadium, or more commonly known by the locals as “80,000 audience stadium”. The 42.2km route displays the diversity of Shanghai, from modern skyscrapers to ancient temples, from the busiest shopping streets to the quiet riverside city trails. Very scenic (especially by the river) and more often than not lined with supporters. The feeling of entering the stadium and finish is great. Our local agents take care of runners from hotel-start line and back to the hotel. November is cool and comfortable in Shanghai. Last year it was 11℃ to 17℃ (52℉ ~ 63℉) on race day, overcast in the morning, and a little sunny in the afternoon, by which time most runners finished the run. The race is expected to start at 7am and there is a 6 hour cut off time. Minimum age to participate is 20 years old. There is also 10km option the same day if you prefer a shorter distance.
