More than 250 runners have been deported from the Chinese half marathon


The organizers of the Shenzhen half-marathon promised that on the last weekend 258 fraudsters could not escape the punishment for their acts of detention.

18 pedestrians were fraudulently dressed in false cloth and three were fraudulently banned for life. Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday.

Most of the participants in the race could be forbidden for two years, with 237 arrested by traffic cameras and local photographers.

"We deeply regret the violations that occurred during the event. Running marathon is not just an exercise, but a metaphor for life, and every runner is responsible for it," Xinhua said.

China's fraud reports have raised concerns in China People's diary encourages runners to "respect the marathon and respect sports spirit."

The sharp rise in the number of recent incidents and public involvement also blamed the issue.
