CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Last weekend, the 10th Chongqing Marathon “Fight against the Epidemic” National Indoor Health Walk Charity Activities concluded. The Chongqing 2020 International Marathon (hereinafter referred to as “Chongqing Marathon”), which was supposed to start on March 22, was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. But tens of thousands of runners completed the event in a special way.
According to Chongqing Marathon Organization Committee, the rules of this activity were: From 6:00 to 21:00 on March 22, participants will be deemed to complete the activity as long as they participate in 2020 steps indoors recorded by Wechat Walking. Participants will be awarded the certificate of electronic memorial in Wechat after completing the activity. In the five-day registration period, a total of 11,261 runners signed up to participate in the 10th Chongqing Marathon “Fight against the Epidemic” National Indoor Health Walk Charity Activities, and the number of applications reached one third of the “regular race” of Chongqing Marathon.
The online-offline integration approach was planned before the epidemic. According to the relevant person in charge of the Organizing Committee, in the past, Chongqing Marathon would hold offline activities in March, and there was little online participation. It gives us new ideas for development this time. In the future, marathon events will be held not only offline but also online. (Translated by Luo Juan, Fathom Language Limited)
