About the event:
Run the most demanding marathon of your life along one of mankind's greatest monuments.
Since its inception in 1999, the Great Wall Marathon has become revered as one of the world’s most challenging marathons.

Throughout the years, it has developed from mere 350 runners to a sell-out event of 2500 runners, novices and experienced alike.

The route takes you along the spectacular Great Wall in the venue of Huangyaguan, threading through local villages as you are cheered on by its residents giving you the boost needed for its hilly routes and challenging last steps of the tower (5,164 to be exact!).

But this run is not only about the race. It is about the adventure of traveling together with other running-minded spirits, friends and family.

Its about experiencing Chinese culture, getting to know this fantastic country, its people and local cuisine
