On October 15, the 2nd 「Rope 100」Relay Challenge was launched, many teams signed up on that day.
In the afternoon of October 18, Lanjingling organized the first offline special for this year’s「Rope 100」. Numerous participating teams met at Century Park for guided running or guided walking, completing their initial miles in their mile counts.
On October 25, beYoureyeS for the first time arrived at Jiangwan Stadium to collectively carry out a 「Rope 100」offline special with Veteran Marathon Club.
Partnership was the theme of the day, after the participants were grouped into pairs, they ran together as partners with guide running ropes.
Lanjingling voluntarily teamed up for races, achieved good results
Shanghai Marathon 10km Classic Match
On October 18, numerous Lanjingling members went to the Shanghai Marathon 10km Classic Match. There were 3 guide running teams, they are the LU Chenhui & Agassi team; the SHEN Lin & WU Jianbin team; and the SUN Minjie & CAI Yun team. Others participating were guide runners LU Xiaoyan, LI Bin, and CHEN Tao.
The three teams all achieved remarkable results, finishing the race in 46 minutes 09 seconds (Chenhui’s team), 47 minutes 01 seconds (SUN Minjie’s team), and 47 minutes 37 seconds (SHEN Lin’s team) respectively. In the past year, they have made training plans, trained together, constantly improved themselves and pursued excellence. Under the irrigation of sweat and the nourishment of companionship, beautiful flowers of sports accessibility have blossomed.
On October 25, Suzhou Lanjingling members coincidentally met some qualified runners from Shanghai in the Changshu Marathon.
LUO Jun and TIAN Guohua spontaneously joined two Suzhou Lanjingling teams, both of which had a smooth finish in the Marathon.
Screening of Accessible Movie Vanguard on National Day
On the morning of October 5, around 20 Lanjingling’s arrived at cinema to watch the new blockbuster movie ‘Vanguard’.
It was the second movie released by Zhiai Cinema’s accessible movie project.
Visually impaired members enjoyed the film with their friends and families, sharing the joy with sighted audiences in this festive day.
「Fitness 100」Fitness Project Continues
The 4th to 7th Core’s 「Fitness 100」were carried out on October 7, 14, 21 and 28 respectively. Many were already familiar with the gym equipment and were able to complete the fitness routines given by Coach Aidon without assistance.
The lack of fitness training among the visually impaired community isn’t due to their inability to use equipment, but due to their lack of expert guidance and support. We hope that more and more fitness clubs will join our 「Fitness 100」Fitness Project, to enable more visually impaired people to engage in fitness and enjoy it.
Lanjingling's Colorful Lives
Lanjingling members ran in celebration of the National Day
On October 1, the national day, Lanjingling members from across the nation spontaneously celebrated the National Day in various unique fashions.
Meanwhile, SHEN Lin, SUN Minjie, and YAO Yin set off on the west bank of the Huangpu River and ran the shape of a rose for Motherland’s birthday!
Also worthy of mention was ZHOU Ping’s letter of the running path, with its final touch marked three hours after set-off.
As the saying goes: why do tears cling to my eyes? Because so deeply do I love this soil and this land.
Today, perhaps we all shall say: why do smiles cling to my face? Because so lovingly do I trust this soil and this land.
Thanks for your reading. We will see you next month!
