Shenzhen is schedule to hold China’s first women marathon on the Women's Day. All of the volunteers for the event will be male, who will be providing the women runners with a full array of services, just as gentlemen do.

The marathon will have three categories - Marathon (42.195 kilometers), Half-Marathon (21.0975 kilometers) and Experienced Course (5.5 kilometers).

Fashionable and unique silver necklaces will be awarded to runners who finish their entire course within the required time, in any of the three categories.

The organizers hope that the event will attract public attention to women's health issues and women mired in poverty. Also, it is reported that 25% of the entry fees will be donated to the Impoverished Women and Children's Fund.
