InternChina at the Zhuhai – Macau Half Marathon 2014
Yesterday, Sunday the 14th of November 2014 the annual Zhuhai – Macau charity “half-marathon” in Zhuhai took place. Kevin from our InternChina office in Zhuhai and Jesus who is currently interning at our partner company China 2 West were participating in this 16 km distance run.
Both were preparing for almost three weeks in order to finish the race in their best possible times and it needs to be said that they never ran such a long distance at a competition before. And indeed, Kevin and Jesus ran a great time considering this limited time to prepare. Both guys accomplished the 16 km distance within 1 hour and 20 minutes and feel happy to have crossed the finish line along with 500 other Chinese runners.
But not only was the run was a great experience for both, they also had a great time meeting, chatting and taking photos with lots of Chinese people. Finally all the runners had a big,delicious lunch in the Nanping area of Zhuhai which included free Harbin beer, what more would our two guys needed after a challenging race?
Also a big thank you to Maddy, Dasha, Manish, Pat and Sunny for supporting Kevin and Jesus on the morning before the run and giving our guys even more confidence and encouragement.
