The course passes Beijing landmarks such as Temple of Heaven, Zhengyangmen and commercial areas of Beijing Financial Street, Zhongguancun and across Peking University and Tsinghua University. A total of 116 athletes will compete in the event.

Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven Park and the campuses of Peking University and Tsinghua University will unfortunately be closed to the public.
