The Shanghai International Marathon is an annual marathon held in Shanghai, China during late Fall.

The course records were both set in 2012 as Kenya's Sylvester Kimeli Teimet set the men's standard of 2:09:01 hours and Ethiopian Feyse Tadese broke the women's record with 2:24:08 hours. Participation also reached a new high that year, as over 30,000 runners competed in the mass race.[1]
