Five hundred portable toilets were placed for the annual Beijing Marathon at the Tiananmen Square on Sunday, 160 more than last year's, Beijing News reported.

There was a toilet at every 2 or 2.5 kilometers.

More than 30,000 people participated in this year's event. Apart from the newly set portable toilets, there were another 400 public toilets on the square, which means there was a toilet for every 33 participants.

Photos of last year's Beijing marathon runners answering the call of nature against a wall went viral on the Internet. Some runners said they were forced to urinate in public because there were limited portable toilets on the route.
