an Ancient Chinese Proverb(August
China is a country with the history of more than 5000 years
old.It is Friday now,and since you would like to come to Beijing
China to run the 15th Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1,2016,and
there would be so many stories to tell about the history of the
Great Wall of China Marathon(GWCM),and the wonderful runners in all
the past 15 years,including the runners who are signing up every day
for the next year.
And two American writers are keeping the close contacts with
us,and we have told them that we would invite them to write a book
in English about the Great Wall of China Marathon(GWCM),and then get

So the Chinese proverbs such as this have deeply formed the
philosophy of Chinese people,and also have formed the attitude of
how Chinese people treat the people around.
So from this year,we would tell our world runners about
Chinese culture occasionally.We are very happy to tell you that our
very loyal and very dedicated new Ambassador of Great Wall of China
Marathon Mr.Shawn Crafford has started to learn the Chinese language
from this week.
Next week,we would introduce some very nice USA runners and
USA organization that would participate/run the 15th Great Wall of
China Marathon on May 1,2016.
