Shanghai’s charity race season kicks off this year on April 9th with the Shanghai Smiles Charity Run.
Founded in 2011 to support the education and medical care of impoverished youth, the Shanghai Smiles Foundation has partnered with the Shanghai East Best Lansheng Event Management Company to bring back their annual running event.
The race will feature 4000 runners—3000 in the 10km race and 1000 in the 3km family fun run. The routes cover the Qiantan area of Pudong, snaking through Qiantan Avenue, Qiantan Park and Yaoti Road.
Participants can register online here. Registration is only available in Chinese. The fee for the 10K race is RMB100 per person and RMB40 for the 3K fun run.
The first 20 male and female finishers will earn a spot in the Shanghai International 10K race on October 22.
All proceeds go to the Shanghai Smiles Foundation.
