A total of 4,000 runners will participate in the 21-kilometer half marathon and 5.2km race. As the name suggests, most runners will be women. However, their boyfriends and husbands are allowed to run with them.

They will start in Daning Park and pass Daning’s iconic commercial complex IMIX Park, an eSports hub and film industry park on Lingshi Road.

Eight water and seven medical stations will be situated along the course, along with four ambulances. Cooling sponges will be available every five kilometers, and three water sprays will help runners beat the heat.

From 7am to 10:30am Saturday morning, some roads will be closed to traffic, including Guangzhong Road W. between Gonghexin and Gaoping Roads; Yichuan Road between Wanrong and Yuncheng Roads; Lingshi Road between Ningsheng and Yuncheng Roads; Yonghe Road between Gonghexin and Gaoping Roads; and Wanrong Road between Yonghe and Guangzhong W Roads.
