“Fantastic performance from today’s winners. It was a brutal hard marathon and half marathon due to the heavy rain during last week. The rain made the track very wet, muddy and slow to run. And even without the rain this track is designed to be tough! With a lot of climbing and different types of terrain. So therefore all runners who fullfil today’s Forest marathon are real heroes!
Zhang Ligang, born in 1995 from Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province, participated in the Jingyuetan International Forest Marathon in for the first time. It took 2:52:20 to win the Male team championship. This is the first time he came to Changchun to participate in the marathon, he felt very comfortable running in the forest. Although some part of the forest road was slightly muddy, it did not affect his determination to fight hard. We also look forward to he get better results in more classic races.
