Organizing a marathon event in 2020 requires vigour and acute attention to detail, and the City of Nanjing did just that. Over 10,000 runners underwent a stringent health safety selection process, with many runners participating virtually.

This was the only National Marathon Championship and Olympic Marathon Qualifier in China taking place this year, with 200 elite national athletes participating, ready to fight for the opportunity to compete at the Olympics.

ICARUS Sports ran alongside the 2020 Nanjing Marathon and was responsible for online media distribution, and for the inclusion of highlights from the event in our monthly TV show, The Outdoor Sports Show, meaning guaranteed international exposure in more than 160 countries.

Manos Kampas, Sales Director at ICARUS Sports commented, “This is our first year in the city of Nanjing, a beautiful city soaked in history and culture. We are very happy to be part of it and increase the international media exposure for the Bank of Nanjing – 2020 Nanjing Marathon, and the sponsors behind it. We look forward to more such events being hosted in Nanjing”.
