Track route map

Due to some construction work within the city, the original route of the Dongfang Marathon had to be changed, although the starting and ending points of the new track remain unchanged, making it easier for players to travel to and from the area.

The starting areas of the two events are both located in Oriental Culture Square. The half marathon ends at one of the most famous scenic spots in Dongfang City – Yulinzhou Scenic Area, and the mini health run ends at the Citizens Leisure Plaza.
