Participants could choose to run distances of 3, 6 or 12 kilometres, with a special 200-metre heat for young participants.

According to the event's organisers, about 3,000 people ran in the event.

During the event, streets in parts of the city were closed, redirecting buses and causing difficulties for drivers.
