Jiading hosts running activity

( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2014-11-17

A running activity hosted by Greenland Group kicked off at Yuanxiang Lake, Jiading, Shanghai, on Nov 15. Over 500 residents attended.

Different from other running competitions, the participants could finish the 5-kilometer route by either running or walking. They could not only take the opportunity to work out, but also enjoy the beautiful lake scenery.

The activity also had a special section for participants to experience the life of blind people. With eyes blindfolded, people were asked to run 100 meters with the help of volunteers. “Though I was led by the volunteer, I was afraid I would fall at each step,” said a participant.

The organizer also prepared colorful powder for people to celebrate at the finish line.
