As part of the Chongqing International Marathon and the "Happy Run, Passionate Youth" Series, the Chongqing Children's Day Colorful Run has been successfully held twice since its launch in 2011. With its influence continuously improving, it has been favored by more and more families and has become one of the largest parent-child road-running events in China. The 2024 Chongqing Children's Day Colorful Run attracted more than 5,500 runners from over 2,500 families.

The route starts from Chongqing Opening Port Heritage Park and ends at Dongyuan 1891B Hall, which is about 5 kilometers in length. It passes through many urban landmarks such as Longmenhao Old Street, Ciyun Temple, and Bell Tower Square. There is beautiful scenery and a rich historical and cultural atmosphere along the way. Running on the road, children can get a good sports experience and feel the profound historical and cultural deposits of Nanbin Road. There is no ranking or rewards. In order to mobilize everyone's enthusiasm and enhance the experience of participation, the organizer provides timing services for all participants.

The organizer recruited 324 volunteers from Chongqing Police College, Sichuan International Studies University, and Chongqing University of Education. They were trained in accordance with Chongqing International Marathon's service standards to offer participants high-quality services. In addition, there is one center, one sub-center, and ten sites for first aid, two designated hospitals, three ambulances, 20 AEDs, 49 medical workers, 56 stationary first aid responders, ten first aid runners, and 253 security guards, building a strong safety and medical service system for participants.

To stimulate children's interest in sports and enhance their enthusiasm for physical exercise, this year's medals have been upgraded in an all-around way by using a brand-new visual design and various forms of collocation based on the previous special mystery boxes. The medals for girls differ from those for boys. They are presented together with badge accessories under different themes. Thus, the medals symbolizing honor bring everyone a sense of ceremony and surprise.

In addition, characteristic supporting activities included a birthday party and an intangible cultural heritage experience of Chen Mahua (or fried dough twist). After running, nearly 30 children born around the Children's Day gathered at the birthday party jointly organized by the Organizing Committee and Metro to make birthday wishes, enjoy a birthday cake, and receive gifts. Amid blessing, they spent an unforgettable birthday.

Relying on the high-quality cultural and tourism resources of Nanbin Road National Cultural Industry Demonstration Park and the unique track advantages of Nanbin Road, the Chongqing Children's Day Colorful Run will give full play to the brand effect of the Chongqing International Marathon. According to the sports needs of teenagers, it will be built into a differentiated featured road running IP, promote the development of mass fitness and health, and help Chongqing build itself into a modern city strong on sports.
