Putuo 2018 New Year Run kicked off at Changfeng Park on December 31, attracting more than 600 participants.
Some physically impaired runners also joined the activity, assisted by volunteers. A special family lane was also set up for a more relaxing run.
The running route was designed to go across many scenic spots in the district, so runners could enjoy beautiful scenes while running.
After the running session, a carnival area was arranged for VR skiing, spinning and wall painting. The organizer also prepared gifts for those who played the games.
The New Year Run has been held in Putuo for 33 consecutive years. This year, another running event was also initiated in Taopu. A running station has been set up in Taopu Sports Park, which will be used for a series of running training and lectures in the future.
