January 2 morning witnessed 6 Changde runners in 2016 Xiamen International Marathon.


Since 2003, Xiamen International Marathon has been held annually for fifteen consecutive years. It is deemed as IAAF Gold Label Road Race for consecutively nine years. Xiamen International Marathon this year attracted more than 4.8 million athletes from 45 countries and regions in its Marathon (42.195km) and 5 km Healthy Run. 3 male runners and 3 female runners from Changde participated in the Marathon (42.195km) after they were all lucky to have registered the race successfully in less than 50% registration rate. A good start for the New Year.


"Almost perfect!" Tang Xiao blurted out yesterday. Tang, a mother of two daughters, finished the race in 4 hours 27 minutes and 32 seconds, 7 minutes slower than her best result. Luckily enough for Tang, her four generations---parents, two children, and 85 year old grandmother awaited her at the track exit.
