Towards the end of November, and heading into December, Guangzhou will have witnessed a series of fantastic international food festivals and auto show, along with some very iconic running events. It is getting to the time of the year now when the city is getting cooler, so it is a perfect time to host such running events and bring everyone together for European food festivals.
The Guangzhou marathon promises to be a spectacular event, for those running and simply for those watching. This is because a huge 20,000 people will be allowed to participate in the occasion which is dedicated to promoting sport for youths. Then there is the "Terry Fox Run", which is another great event done for a good cause, with its history proving to everyone that you can overcome obstacles and achieve your goals if you are determined enough.
