Registration open for Puma Jinqiao 8k run The popular annual race returns in April from Timeout Shanghai First published on 4 Mar 2014. Updated on 4 Mar 2014. One of Shanghai's longest-running annual community events returns next month, with runners of all stripes lacing up for the 13th Jinqiao 8k race on Sunday 13 April. With Shanghai's running community growing apace, participant numbers have soared over the years, from 500 at the inaugural race in 2002 to last year's 6,000-strong crowd, with sports giants queuing up to sponsor the event (this year it's Puma's turn). As with previous years, as well as the full 8k course there's a more manageable option in the form of a 2.4k 'Coca Cola Happiness Run', which has proved popular with families in the past (register by calling 5132 5119). Registration for the main event, which costs 150RMB/entrant, is now open until Monday 31 March at various locations around town, including selected Puma retail outlets, all Element Fresh branches, the Jinqiao Megafit Sports Club and WHS. Spaces are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. For more details, including the race route, see the official Puma Jinqiao 8k site.
