Video: Pãobù – The Rise of Running in China

This video comes our way courtesy of our friends over at Salomon TV. It is a short documentary that charts the rise of running in China, a place where the sport was almost completely off the radar a few short years ago, but is now growing into a major recreational and competitive pastime. The number of races –– both on and off road –– in China has risen dramatically and now the runners there are getting far more competitive on an international level too. Find out more about this movement in the clip below.
