Also a runner, Yin encouraged Gu to try the marathon, which piqued his interest. At first, Gu didn't know much about marathons, but after training, he registered for the International Half Marathon in Hangzhou in 2013 and finished it in 1 hour, 58 minutes and 59 seconds. Since then, Gu has run several marathons across China, and began to take part in competitions abroad in 2017.
