About the Race
You will run on the Great Wall itself, taking in some 3.5km near the start and again near the finish - while negotiating the giant steps of The Wall at the start is tough enough, trying to negotiate them near the finish on tired legs is something else altogether! The rest of the route is through stunning mountain scenery on good tracks and asphalt roads, which along with the high temperatures you can expect, make this marathon or half marathon a true test - most marathoners expect to be over 1 hour slower than their road times. This is a race for everyone, there are no time limits and the course remains open with full back up support until the last runners' finish - to check-out the results from previous years and a full overview and a full range of pictures of the race visit Great Wall Marathon Pictures.
