The organizing committee of the 2018 Hangzhou Marathon held its first pre-race press conference recently, announcing that this year's event is scheduled for 7:30 on Nov 4th. Registration officially will start at 10:00 on August 16th and will last until 5:00 p.m. on August 30th.

The 2018 Hangzhou Marathon includes five exercise programs, namely full marathon, half marathon, mini marathon, couple-run and family-run, with a total of 35,000 participants. Among them, the spot’s quantity of full marathon and half marathon which are the most popular exercise programs has increased compared with last year, with the quantity of full-marathon spots increased from 11,000 to 15,000, the quantity of half-marathon spots increased from 9,000 to 10,000, and the quantity of mini marathon spots reduced from 11,600 to 6,000. There are 800 couple-run spots and 800 family-run spots . And there are 350 charity-run spots this year.

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.

What is worth mentioning is that the press conference announced: face recognition technology will be used in this event. Using this technology in authentication and regional security control can accurately and efficiently improve the level of security management. At the event, Hangzhou Marathon also signed up with Los Angeles Marathon, the world's ninth largest marathon, to establish a friendly relationship with each other. Both parties will open up registration channels and organize competitors to compete with each other.
