Great Wall Marathon

The longest man-made structure in the world lends just a small portion of itself for one of the most beautiful and challenging races in the world. Apart from the full marathon, which is approximately 26.2 miles (42km), and a half marathon which is about 13.1 miles (21km), there is a Fun Run in which anybody over the age of 12 can participate. The race has two basic sections, one on the wall and another which sees contestants running on reasonably flat terrain through picturesque villages and rice fields. Although much of the Great Wall is uneven, steep and even treacherous in parts, the marathon route is even and well-maintained.

Venue: Tianjin Province

Date: 16 May 2020
