The run started from the Overseas High-Level Talents Base for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and ended at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium, with a total length of 13.14 kilometers.
About 2,600 people participated in the event.
With less than 181 days until the opening ceremony of the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games, the Cherry Blossom Run integrated various cultural-themed activities along the runway, such as a Hanfu performance, Asian Games market and love-themed exhibition.
Art installations along the track are quite eye-catching and suitable for selfies.
The public interacts with Asian Games mascots.
