More than 1,500 trail runners participated in the second annual XTERRA Taihu 5K, 10K, 30K, and 50K trail runs at the Taihu National Tourism Vacation Zone in Suzhou.
The contestants included 66-year-old senior racers and 4-year-old child racers. Foreign participants accounted for more than 10% of the attendants and they came from nearly 30 countries and regions, fully reflecting the openness and inclusiveness of the XTERRA sports community.
In addition to the trail races, the XTERRA China team also hosted additional sustainability initiatives including X-plogging events around the Taihu National Tourism Vacation Zone on race day, planting one tree on behalf of each athlete through the Green Foundation, providing reusable cups, using recycled materials for the race bag and race tee shirt, awarding wooden medals, and eliminating plastic cutlery and plates.
