at Great Wall of China Marathon on May
1,2015 (April 17,2015)
Yesterday,we found that the
oldest runner is from Japan.He is Mr.Akira Muto.When he was 62 years
old,he ran the 2nd Great Wall of China Marathon(GWCM) in 2003.
12 years has passed,Mr.Muto
applied to run the full marathon again at the 14th Great Wall of
China Marathon on May 1,2015.He is 74 years old.Then in Japan,we
suggested him to change his running distance,and not run the full
marathon.He said he did not mind that he could finish running the
full marathon or not this time.He just wanted to know how long
distance that he would still be able to run on the Great Walls.
When Mr.Muto was young,his best
full marathon result was 3:20:50.We think that he could finish
running about 30KM in about 9 hours,and after 9 hours15 minutes,we
would stop Mr.Muto,and bring him down to the Great Walls through the
shortcut of the Great Walls.
Yes,after 9 hours 15 minutes and
9 hours 30 minutes of the race,we would stop the runners who are
still at Houchuankou Areas and Dongwuyanhou Areas and Visitor Center
Areas.It would take about 40 minutes or 50 minutes to get them down
to the Great Walls through the shortcut and back to the Finish
Areas.We hope our runners could support our work,and listen to the
direction of our staff working on the Great Walls.
The bib number of Mr.Akira Muto
is 0001.We also admire Mr.Muto very much.If there would be a few
minutes,we would like to invite Mr.Muto to give every runners a few
word at the Course Explanation Meeting at
Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel about the Great Wall of China
Marathon 12 years ago.We would translate his Japanese into English
and Chinese for everyone.
We are still having the runners

1,2015 every day.As soon as you submit your Online Application,we
would send your names to the champion chip company,and you would
even immediately know your bib numbers.Also be sure to make the
