Enthusiastic runners will soon have the chance to run a marathon between China and Myanmar at the 2019 Ruili China and Muse Myanmar International Marathon.



Some 10,000 participants will be able to compete in different races - a marathon, half-marathon, short distance fun run and parent-child event. Myanmar runners will be presented with the special Paukphaw Friendship Award.


Located in west Yunnan's Dehong Dai and Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture, Ruili is a city on the China-Myanmar border. Beginning in Ruili's Jiegao Town, the marathon covers 12 kilometers in Muse, Myanmar before recrossing the border back to Ruili.



The marathon will start and finish in Ruili in China's southwest Yunnan province on December 31. Registration runs from October 8 to November 30.
