We are less than one month away until the Run To The Beat Beijing on May 20, 2018! Here comes the Race Course Map to help you get ready! The course is located at the beautiful Ming Tombs Reservoir Scenic Area in Changping District of Beijing, surrounded by green mountains and turquoise water. It’s pretty much the dream running location for all runners in Beijing.
Recently, we invited a group of professional running Coach and Pacers from Nike Running Club to test the course first hand and to share with you some hands-on running tips. Check out the video below:
Run To The Beat Half Marathon Pacers will come from Nike Running Club. They will lead, encourage, and
service runners who aim to finish the race with a set goal.
Here is a brief summary of the race-day tips from Nike Running Club coach and pacers:
1.Be prepared for the uphills and downhills. This course is not flat, runners should strategically plan their running pace and body strength
2.The race will take place in late May, which means the temperature on race day might be high. Always remember to hydrate
3.If you are not feeling well during running, please slow down and ask for help immediately
4.The most important thing is to enjoy the beautiful view and the live music along the course, PB can come second
A few tips to help you get race ready :

The total distance of this course is 21 KM. Only the half marathon participants will finish the entire course, whereas 5k and 10k runners will take the turning points respectively.
As the first music half marathon in Beijing, we have set up 7 music stations along the course, including 6 DJ stations and 1 piano station.
We carefully selected the music themes that are to coordinate with runners’ physical and mental conditions amongst different sections of the course.
Drink Stations are evenly spread along the course including water, Biosteel sports drink, banana and energy snacks provided by Nestlé. They are meant to help our athletes powering through the entire course on race day.
Safety of athletes is our primary concern. There will be 7 Medical Stations and 5 Ambulances placed along the course.
If you are not feeling well during the run, the medical staff will provide support on course.
Run To The Beat Beijing will feature a Festival Area, where you will find the festival stage, medal engraving tent, result tent, VIP Food Area, as well as the sponsor exhibitions.
