An estimated 30'000 runners take part in 34th Beijing’s International Marathon despite “hazardous” levels of smog.
Once the green light was given, most competitors chose to ignore the health warnings, instead donning facemasks they hoped would prevent #toxic air invading their lungs as they gathered in #Tiananmen Square ahead of the race’s 8am start
In any event, the end result was a surreal photo album of the "airpocalypse" marathon, perhaps the best harbinger of the globalized future, as of thousands of people jogged across downtown Beijing in gasmasks
"It was really exhausting," said Ma Dong, a 22-year-old male runner who was among those to use a mask. “Lots of athletes pulled out halfway because of the haze. It was really uncomfortable wearing a mask during the marathon as you can't breathe freely.”

Now for the ask. I would greatly appreciate a donation of any size, and even though the website has a minimum of $10, I’m happy to collect checks made out to the club in any amount.
In exchange for the love, I’m putting everyone’s name on my running jersey and will do a social media campaign around it. If you’re in business and I get $100, I’ll add a logo. If you’re really serious and have $1,000, I’ll wear your logo only. And for $2,500, I’ll wear a tu-tu.
In advance, thank you. Here’s the link to the donation page: https://www.crowdrise.com/LABoysGirlsClubLA2015/fundraiser/edgarmejia
