Run for Clarity – Changzhou’s dancing dinos are watching

The Blue Harbor Park Changzhou China in the New North District was the starting point for the Changzhou team to commence their walk and Run for Clarity on 29 August 2018. Equipped with the latest t-shirts and flags of the 2018 Run for Clarity, our team in Changzhou, dubbed the Dragon Town, were strong advocates to raise awareness of water scarcity in rural areas in the world.  changzhou IMG_2263They walked and ran through the park until they reached the China Dinosaur Park where dinosaur enthusiasts can see the world’s earliest, biggest and most complete Hadrosaur fossil, 50 other fossils and numerous bones on display.  changzhou IMG_2254For the less serious traveler, the park offers a large amusement section with thirty dinosaur themed rides and sculptures that swagger in the rhythm of the music played.  changzhou china-dinosaur-parkThe paleontology of the park did not stop our runners to continue their mission to run five and a half kilometers.
