Ningbo runners to “draw” image of dog to celebrate Year of Dog

A total of 200 runners from eastern China’s city of Ningbo celebrated the coming Year of the Dog on Saturday by turning their running route into art: an image of a puppy dog.

Runners created such creative images by recording their running routes with GPS technology.

The running activity was initiated by an engineer named Wen Linbo, who is also a running enthusiast, and it covered a length of 32 kilometers.

“Running has always been considered dull sport, and route art is one way to excite the runners,” Wen explained.

“I hope every participant can have a special memory of the New Year by joining the activity,” he said.
