The 2014 Shanghai International Marathon started at 7:00 a.m. on November 2 with a shot of the starting gun. Over 35,000 runners from more than 80 countries came to challenge themselves and endure the grueling 26.2 miles.
Old Yang is 59 years old and loves exercises. He has taken to long-distance running since he participated in the Marathon 2012 when SOLIDWARE was the sponsor of the 2012 Shanghai International Marathon. This year, Old Yang registered again and it was the third consecutive time that he takes part in this event. Though he ran the marathon alone, he was backed with the full support of the SOLIDWARE's staff.
