|The once-glitchy Beijing Marathon went off without a hitch by popular verdict of many interviewed runners who participated in its 37th edition on Sunday.
The 42.195-kilometer race is considered the most coveted marathon in China Cheap Nike Shox NZ , attracting about 30,000 runners from China and abroad.
Previous marathons were marred by scandals like having runners breathe in polluted air and a dearth of portable toilets that forced runners to urinate along the course.
Beijing on Sunday morning had an official air quality index reading of 19, healthy enough for outdoor activities.
"The conditions and weather were perfect," said Chung Yun-hee, a professional South Korean marathon runner. "There was a breeze along the way to cool me until the sunlight got strong later in the morning."
Chung enjoyed the audience.
"The spectators were also very enthusiastic," he said. "I never had the same feeling competing abroad. They were cheering 'jia you!' [Come on!] for us."
Chung's compatriot Kim Seong-eun said the cheering made her feel like she was "competing at home."
Chung was among several Asian athletes invited by the organizers to promote an Asian marathon series. The Beijing Marathon is now the opening leg of a newly established continental multi-race marathon series: Asian Premier Marathon (APM).
China's Li Zicheng finished the race with a time of 2 hours, 17 minutes and 36 seconds Cheap Nike Shox , the best result from an Asian athlete. He Yinli was the best female Chinese athlete with a 2:42:53 -finish.
Li, who became the top Asian finisher at the 2017 Beijing Marathon in only his second time participating, said the event was more important than before.
"After joining APM, there will be more high-level Asian competitors and I am looking forward to meeting them on the course," he said.
Li's top-place finish earned him a $160,000 bonus from APM. "I hope I can do better in the series," he said.
After Sunday's race Cheap Air Max 97 Summit White , the APM will continue its maiden season in Lebanon at the Beirut Marathon on November 12, followed by the Seoul Marathon in March next year before returning to the Chinese capital in 2018.
Chung, who competed for South Korea at the 2012 London Olympic Games, also pointed out a difference between Chinese and Korean runners.
"I think Chinese runners ran pretty fast across the first 10 kilometers, but after the 30-kilometer mark, most of them slowed down," said Chung Cheap Air Max 97 Undefeated , who finished her first Beijing Marathon in 2:47:01, the third-place Asian female finisher. "But I can see they are well-trained runners."
Chung, 34, said she feels the Beijing Marathon is a world-class race and expressed her hope of coming back to China again in the future.
"My next step is for sure the Seoul Marathon in March next year," Chung said. "But Beijing has left me a very nice impression. I hope I can compete more in China in the future."
For elite athletes from Africa, Salah Eddine Bounasr of Morocco stunned Ethiopian Girmay Birthanu Gebru to claim a title win, clocking the race in 2:11:18. Kenya's Stephen Kwelio Chemlany finished third.

UNITED NATIONS Cheap Air Max 97 Womens , Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Leaders around the world have gathered in New York for the 72nd UN General Assembly (UNGA). UN officials said Chinese President Xi Jinping's concept of building a community of shared future for mankind agrees well with the theme of UNGA.
This year's UNGA, kicked off on Sept. 12, carries the theme of "Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet," which is widely hailed as in perfect harmony with President Xi's concept.
"We can say it's a symphony," said Jorge Chediek, director of the UN Office for South-South Cooperation.
"Chinese President Xi Jinping's shared destiny among all peoples is in accordance with the UN values," Chediek said Cheap Air Max 97 Mens , adding that China's commitment to connectivity, trade, cultural and people-to-people exchanges is very important for developing countries.
Chediek said that President Xi showed China's vision for global governance, and China's contribution was an example with significant resources devoted to South-South cooperation.
The official, who attended the Belt and Road summit in May in Beijing, said that China's Belt and Road Initiative, which is committed to connectivity Cheap Air Max 97 , and the idea of promoting Chinese investment in least developed countries are really fulfilling the idea of a community of shard future for mankind.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that "we live in a world with global problems -- climate change, terrorism, inequality -- and there is no way we can solve (them) on a country-by-country basis."
"We see, more and more, that only global solutions can address global problems. And for global solutions to be possible, we need to have mechanisms of governance allowing countries to come together and manage together the problems of our times," he said.
Guterres' remarks are in perfect tune with Xi's concept.
Miroslav Lajcak Cheap Nike VaporMax Mens , president of 72nd General Assembly, said that "China has long been a faithful partner of the United Nations, and a steadfast proponent of peace, diplomacy, and the multilateral system."
The UN official said that with war and conflict, terrorism and violent extremism, inequality and poverty Cheap Nike VaporMax Womens , and the impacts of climate change, Xi's concept of a community of shared future for mankind provides an inspirational vision.
"Only by working together on the basis of mutual understanding and shared responsibility will we be able to maintain international peace, achieve inclusive and sustainable development, protect our natural environment, and combat climate change," he said.
In January this year, Xi delivered a speech entitled "Work Together to Build a Community of Shared Future for Mankind" at the United Nations Office in Geneva Cheap Nike VaporMax CS , Switzerland..
