The 2018 Guiyang International Marathon will kick off at 7:30 am on July 22 in Guiyang, Guizhou province.

Over 25,000 runners are expected to take part in the full marathon (42km), half marathon (21km) and mini marathon (3.5km).

The winners of the men and women's full marathons will win a reward of 30,000 yuan ($4,500), while the winners of the half marathon will win 10,000 yuan.

All participants who finish the marathon on time will receive a memorial medal and participant certification. The live show for the 2018 Guiyang International Marathon will be broadcasted on CCTV 5.

Guiyang is located on the eastern side of the Yungui Plateau, with layers of mountains and deep valleys spreading across it. The weather is mild throughout the year, with winter temperatures dipping only four degrees and summers rarely exceeding 30 C.

In recent years, the local government has been committed to ecological development and has built Guiyang into a garden city with more than 45 percent grass and tree coverage. The city is sometimes referred to as the "world's summer resort".
