Run for youth, and run for the 122nd anniversary of Peking University

Peking : May 4th marks the 122nd anniversary of Peking University, the 101st anniversary of the May Fourth Movement, and the 2020 National Youth Day of China. To celebrate this big day, Peking University held the second May Fourth Marathon!

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it was not possible for many PKUers to gather on campus and run shoulder to shoulder like what has been done last year. Instead, people can run outside the campus and share their efforts online this year! Participants finished a 5.4-kilometer run and then uploaded their routes to a specified event page. As of 6 p.m. on May 4, a total of 9,336 PKUers submitted their running records, with the accumulated distance reaching 62874.29km.

Being apart could not sap the passion of our students, staff and alumni. With numerous creative and uniquely designed routes, PKUers accomplished their May Fourth Marathon and sent their best wishes to the 122-year-old Peking University.
