This year, Hangzhou Marathon has been upgraded from an IAAF bronze race to a silver race, but the entry fee remains unchanged: 120 yuan for the full marathon, 100 yuan for the half marathon, 60 yuan for mini marathon, 180 yuan for family run and 120 yuan for couple run. The race remains the regulation that applicants need to pay the entry fee and then draw lots. The entry fee will be refunded to those who are not qualified for the race. The biggest difference between competitions of this year and previous years is that competitors can apply for a refund if they are unable to compete in one month before the competition due to personal reasons.
