As always, the flow of traffic will be adversely affected during this year’s Guangzhou Marathon. The great race is scheduled to take place from 7.45am to 1.45pm on Sunday, December 9, starting from Tianhe Sports Center

This year, there will be a total of 30,000 runners partaking in the event's full and half marathons, while thousands of volunteers will help ensure the race runs smoothly (unlike the Suzhou Taihu Marathon).
