Finally, BOITJACOBKIPLIMO and KANGOLOICEJEBET from Kenya respectively obtained champions of men and women groups.

There are many featured scenic spots of Yangshan Town including new Pastoralism, Peach Island Landscape Park and Changyaoshan Scenic Area and boutique home stays scattered by the side of racing track. Runners enjoyed the scenery while running.
Yangshan Town is famous for peach blossoms and juicy peaches, so this competition was also called "peach blossom marathon". And the deuterogenic love theme was also a bright spot of the competition.
Apart from the project of halfway marathon, the project of mini-marathon was also added in 2018, letting more runners share joy of sports.
