However, as soon as the news came out, controversy arose in the lap. Some runners said that the organizing committee was "nonsense", "the runners expressed dissatisfaction, which is not compatible with the marathon temperament." Some people commented, "Let’s not say whether they can run, even if they can’t get off, it’s nothing. After all, it's just an inspiring official, but somehow get someone to match the Hangzhou Marathon."
"If Sky Boy is packaged as a runner, will it attract so many complaints? At least the person who decides this matter doesn't understand what a marathon is or doesn't run at all." Facing the runners' doubts, Perhaps due to pressure, the major social media of the Hangzhou Marathon have now deleted relevant promotional materials.
Of course, many runners behaved more rationally in the controversy of spokespersons. "As a marathon enthusiast, I want to say that we only care about the supply of this event, the uneven route, and the weak organization." The author welcomes this kind of "breaking the circle" behavior, "it is of course a good thing for new artists to train and drive more people to run and exercise."
