What is Yepao?:

Yaopao are open sourced running challenges in and around wildhomestay in Sanyang, Anhui, China. Established by a group of people who enjoy their running and hiking and who get a kick out of helping and building community. It’s open to anyone who is able to support. It’s non profit and goal is to help develop responsible adventure running.

Who is behind it?:

PeterW: a rather talented German amateur triathlete who resides in Shanghai.
Leigh: Shanghai based running coach and race organiser, who escapes to the hills at every opportunity. Also helps organise Runners Hai!

And many thanks to others who have helped us open up the running trails.

Robin Trebbe, road runner and triathlete and occasionally also trail runner, hates night trails though. Involved in sports privately and through his job!
NoureddineS: an energetic enthusiastic runner from Belgium who helped formulate this and enjoys the odd long run!
