The Beijing Half Marathon 2021 will get started at 7am on Saturday, April 24. That means the capital will see some temporary road closures from as early as 5am on the day of the event. 

The half marathon route begins at Tiananmen Square, heads east along Chang’an Dong Jie towards Jianguomen Qiao, north along the Second Ring Road to Andingmen Qiao and north along Beizhen Lu before finishing at the Olympic Park. Remember to leave a little earlier and plan ahead if you're on the road in Beijing during this time. 

See the map below for the detailed route.
