Event Info

When:               Saturday, May 22nd. Start times and route maps are here, you can also get there by clicking on the route maps tab above. Try to time your run to finish at 3-4pm.

Where:              Start and finish are at Arrow Factory in Liangmahe. Routes are along the lakes, rivers, and canals of Beijing.

Cost:                 Donation of any amount that will go to Inspiration From Nature, based in Danba, Sichuan that focuses on community led environmental protection and education as a way to sustainably develop local communities. Seems pretty cool and was recommended by the good folks at Serk Cycling OR 200RMB for shirt and pint glass finisher’s ‘medal’ which includes a 50rmb donation.

What:                 60K ULTRAAAAA, FULL, HALF, and 10k runs along the bodies of water in Beijing.

  • As an unsanctioned race routes aren’t marked. Navigation is an element of the event (although you can scout these routes ahead of time). As such, participants need to bring a cellphone, Garmin, etc and track their run for purposes of verification. Runners should try to adhere to routes as closely and as honestly as possible, although small variations will obviously occur.
  • TO FINISH and be included on the leaderboard: Runners must chug a pint of Seeing Double IPA in Arrow Factory after route completion.* (If you do not drink alcohol then a pint of any non-alocholic beverage is fine).

Why:                  The canals, rivers, and lakes – are, maybe surprisingly, pretty awesome green/blue(ish) spaces. Also: booze. Some examples:

  • The Beijing Greenway, which stretches along both sides of the North City Moat 北护城河,
  • You’re all familiar with Xihai, HouHai, and Qianhai
  • The park beside Bahe (坝河). This park also contains the old northern section of the Yuan dynasty city wall.


  • Swaaaag: Sweet t-shirts and pint glasses as finisher medals! .
  • Get a nice morning run in before getting day wasted! #fitfam #runspo #beastmode #legday
