If you can’t stand the heat stay out of Taiwan. One of the most awe-inspiring landscape found worldwide; you have to have the constitution for humidity to partake in the marathons held in this Asian country. Not a vast number to choose from, there are about nine scheduled major marathons per year. Half, full, and ultra marathons are run across the countryside and in the populated cities. From the Southern Cross-Island Road Ultra Marathon to the Taipei Standard Charter Half Marathon, join international runners on both trail runs and flat lands.
Take in the sites of the Tarok National Park, or see the city from a runners perspective, racing in the New Taipei City Wan Jin Shi Marathon. Sites like nowhere else on Earth, Taiwan offers scenery you can’t see anywhere else. When you have crossed the finish line you can relax in the carbonated cold springs in the mountains and take a sip of the local tea in the beautiful coastal cities.
