The 2020 EVA Air Half Marathon on October 25 attracted 20,000 runners registered for three categories, the half marathon (21.0975 km), 10 km and 3 km races. The number of participants was especially significant in the face of COVID-19 border restrictions.

The event gave runners the opportunity to enjoy some of Taipei’s most scenic cityscapes on a route winding from Ketagalan Boulevard to Dajia Riverside Park beside the Keelung River. In compliance with CECC (Central Epidemic Command Center) guidelines, organizers required all participants to get temperature checks before they entered the venue and wear masks except when they were running.

As an appreciation to all runners for their participation, EVA hosted a lucky draw for the event with economy class tickets for 10 of its international flights and 20 UNI Air domestic trips. Other sponsors also prepared exclusive gifts for the participants.

EVA is upgrading the event to a full marathon in 2021 after hosting three consecutive years of successful half marathons. The airline is making every effort to ensure that its half marathon and, next year, its marathon are professional, international events. EVA’s objective is to give more runners from around the world opportunities to become acquainted with Taipei’s beauty.
