The internet has been taken over by a Chinese grandfather who ran a full marathon in about 3.5 hours while smoking cigarettes!

According to the New York Post, the Chinese social media site Weibo is flooded with images of the chain-smoking athlete, with admirers praising his respiratory toughness.

According to a report in The Mirror, the 50-year-old runner, popularly known as Uncle Chen, completed the Jiande marathon while smoking or lighting up cigarettes.

It may appear that smoking and long-distance running are mutually exclusive. According to the New York Post, the tobacco-loving grandfather finished the race in a respectable 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 45 seconds.

Uncle Chen finished 574th out of approximately 1,500 runners, according to a certificate published on Weibo.


Fans on social media were clearly impressed that he was able to finish the race while smoking — and without running out of cigarettes. Others, however, have accused him of using secondhand smoke to harm other runners, according to TMZ.

This is not Uncle Chen’s first marathon, according to the New York Post! In 2018, he finished the Guangzhou race in 3 hours and 36 minutes.

Furthermore, he completed the 2019 Xiamen marathon in 3 hours and 32 minutes, demonstrating that smoking not only does not hinder but actually improves his performance!
