Attraction in the capital, Beijing marathon there are some really embarrassing.
Although the Beijing International Marathon, includes adidas, Canon, Hyundai Motor and the Olympic Garden an official partner of this, it seems that the sponsor level no better than the red-hot China Open is poor, but is somewhat on the amount of money to feel Nabuchushou.
Beijing Marathon of 2010 established a number of different awards, respectively, ranking award, the time awards, record breaking awards. Male and female winner of the prize is only $ 20,000, also ran into a period of time when the male and female athletes to create a good post good results, but also the time to obtain the corresponding bonus. And if the history of breaking the Beijing marathon best achievements, both men and women will also receive a record $ 42,195 prize.

Considerable The total prize money in the amount of Beijing Marathon. This is London, a female athlete out of the appearance fees, all the London Marathon can be seen how high operating expenses.
King David recognized currently in the country has nearly 20 marathons, while the Beijing marathon in prize money even in the country is not the highest, but he said: "should not reward amount to blind competition, the Beijing marathon prize amount should be, and China match the economic development, can not suddenly come up with so much money to operate, we're paying like to receive good results, such as the award in time, we established a higher bonus, that is, athletes want to run a good result. Top 50 athletes in the world for so many around the world more than 2,000 marathon, supply and demand is always only so much. The participating athletes only 2 to 3 year marathon. so even if we make great efforts to invite people to , not necessarily a good result. "

But from 1986 and 1988 referred children and Abebe ran out of Jade Raymond 2 hours and 7 minutes and 35 seconds after the best performance in Beijing Marathon, Beijing International Marathon 22 years have been difficult to attract high-level athletes to come to an indisputable fact is . 2010 Beijing Marathon did not break the marathon world best set bonus. King David admitted: "Considering the strength of the athletes to come, we do not set up the prize money. But we are also inviting a high level athletes trying to do some work, such as this year we also invited the Tokyo Marathon champion and Rome Marathon champion to come, they also have appearance fees. And in the women's marathon, the Beijing Marathon has been in the international results are very good. "Unfortunately, the Beijing International Marathon, Women's achievements are running out of domestic players , and is the best athlete "friendship star" at the same time the results of the marathon national championship.
