XI'AN, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- Yangling will hold the fifth edition of its international marathon on April 14, according to a statement from the Yangling Agriculture Hi-Tech Industrial Demonstration Zone sports bureau.

"We are setting up five events, including marathon, half-marathon, 5 km race, 3 km race for teenagers and a home run competition," said the statement.

"The runners can register through the official website (http://www.yangling-marathon.com) from January 28 to February 27," the statement added.

Runners will be able to navigate using a digital competition brochure, and a video surveillance system will be used to help the referees catch cheating.
