Chengdu has global ambitions
5/15/2019


China is vowing to step up organizational standards of its marathon races through a bold bid to qualify a Chengdu event for the elite global series.

Inspired by growing participation in domestic road running events, organizers of the Chengdu Marathon, which was only established in 2017, on Tuesday kicked off a multiyear bidding process to join the Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York races as the seventh leg in the Abbott World Marathon Majors series.

Together with partner Wanda Group and the Chinese Athletic Association, the Abbott WMM announced in Beijing that the Chengdu race will be evaluated according to the series' stringent criteria, starting with this year's edition on Oct 27 in the capital city of Sichuan province.

Another race in the Asia-Pacific region, the Singapore Marathon, is also under consideration to join the series.

It's a bold ambition for such a young race to join the six majors, which have developed a worldwide following for decades, but the impetus to match the highest international standards will no doubt provide long-term benefits for the sector in China, said Shui Tao, vice-secretary general of the CAA.

"It's a wise decision to make for all the parties involved," Shui told China Daily.

"To qualify for the major series the Chengdu organizers will have to raise the level of every aspect of the event's organization and services in accordance with WMM standards. Doing that will provide an important reference for other races in China."

Road running has become the fastest-growing sport in China, with about 1,600 CAA-registered races held across the country in 2018.Those events involved 5.83 million participants, according to the CAA.

That enthusiasm saw 6,155 runners from China participate in the six major global races last year, according to Abbott WMM.

"I am very impressed with the passion the Chinese people have for running. Within our events, we've never seen more Chinese participants," said Tim Hadzima, executive director of the series.

"It's really great to see China's growing presence in the foreign races, but there is nothing like racing in the home country. That's what we are truly excited about."

Chengdu's bid is the result of a 10-year partnership signed between Abbott WMM and Wanda Group in 2017, which will see three extra events in the Asia-Pacific region selected to join the major series through 2027.

The two parties have jointly developed an evaluation process, which consists of dozens of criteria ranging from event size to volunteer recruitment and inclusion of elite athletes.

The standards must be met by candidate cities within three years of submitting a bid, according to Wanda.

Shui said the upgrade to WMM standards will help introduce more elite runners to China, allowing local athletes to test themselves against the world's best.

The Chengdu Marathon, operated and promoted by Wanda's sports affiliate, will expand its scale to accommodate 30,000 participants, including 12,000 full-distance runners.

The race course is being revamped to reduce some turn-backs in the second half, which should help improve times.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長及其深遠影響 (1) 
許多前來參加每年一次牧師研討會的牧師感到(2003年人數達到二十五萬之多),他們正經歷著一場由華理克牧師主導的改革運動,他們好像又回到了激動人心的馬丁路德改教運動的時代,不同的是他們可以與領導今天這場改革的領袖相遇和交談。

華理克牧師認為馬丁路德時代的改革是讓教會清楚教會所相信的是什麼,這也是我們今天還在傳講的資訊和教義,而今天的改革是讓教會清楚教會要做什麼


第二次宗教改革的呼聲 
新興教會的運動是教會的第二次宗教改革, 它將徹底改寫教會歷史, 並開創全新的教會時代.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長模式和教會市場法的危機 (1) 
除了“目標導向”的增長公式,許多牧師認為華理克牧師還有增長的秘訣,但華理克牧師認為他的增長策略其實是十分簡單,歸納起來只有三條.

不少學者持懷疑的態度, 他們認為“目標導向”不過是將傳統的基督教原則作了不同的包裝。




《断背山》风头正健,价值观江河日下 (1) 
对基督徒而言,这部影片只不过是一个用艺术包装起来的同性恋合理的说教。但这一次,基督徒却无法用忽略它的存在的方式来反击它,他们必须寻找新的方法来坚守传统的战线。


朱易: 他的正面思維影響了全世界 (1) 
但是斯凱勒在教會界配受尊重,除了他在教堂的建造上獨樹一幟外,他的人品和神學上也頗為出色。他是少數幾個沒有醜聞的電視布道家之一,而讓他成為非主流教會和許多基督徒仿效的對象的原因是,他的講道著重正面信息,用正面思維看問題。
