You may have participated in numerous marathon events, but this one in Yunnan is kind of different.

“Fairyland 100 Marathons”,initiated by Yunnan adventurer Jin Feibao,  has invited 100 well-known runners from home and abroad to compete in 100 marathon events in 100 days across Yunnan province.

“I want to do something for my hometown, and let more people know about Yunnan and run with us,” said Jin Feibao at the launch ceremony held in Kunming, capital city of Yunnan Province on Saturday. 

The first race in Kunming saw a participation of competitors ranging from university students and media workers to professional runners.

In the following 100 days, they will run full marathons in Dali, Lijiang, Diqing and other cities and prefectures of the province, which are expected to help Yunnan gain popularity among international runners.
