This year, despite the outbreak of the epidemic and the level-three alert for two and half months, it has gradually been brought under control in the near future, and lives for people have been back on track. This is due to the hard work of epidemic prevention personnel and the joint efforts of all citizens in the past five months.

Runners are invited to run around Taipei together, Taipei will work hard with everyone on the road of rebirth.
