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 spectators were also very enthusiastic Eddie Jackson Jersey ," he said. "I never had the same feeling competing abroad. They were cheering 'jia you!' [Come on!] for us."
