We just came back from USA and also working at the remot areas for all our races,including the Roof of the World Marathon 2018,we would not have holidays/rest now during the Chinese New Year Seasons.

In this notice,we especially would like to emphersize for the runners who register via our very good cooperator ACTIVE.COM.

Please come to get your race bag any time from 9AM till 6PM on April 30 ,2018 at the 4-star official Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel.

If you also registered any of the 8 Options,please let us know your round tickets information any time before April 15,2018,so that we would arrange our staff to pick you up at Beijing Capital International Airport.

On the race day May 1st,2018,our limousines buses with all the runners would depart Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel at 5:30AM for the Great Wall.We would arrive at the square of the startline of the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon 2018 at about 6:50AM,and then the race would start at 7:30AM.

We have space for all our runners to keep your luggages,and we would also have the rooms for all our world runners for shower after the race.

We would like to say again that your US$250.00 registration fee includes the transportation to the Great Wall,and after the races,we also have our buses to take you back to Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel.

Some of the runners might leave Beijing after the race,if you would like to book the flight tickets or train tickets,we suggest you to reserve your tickets after 9:30PM on May 1st if you run the full marathon.So that you would not be in a hurry in the huge Beijing city,this is our experience.The time limit for the full marathon is 10 hours.

We would release the new course map after Chinese New Year,some time in March,because the Great Wall we use in northwest Beijing is at the Beijing Winter Olympic Zone,and the rapid changes is happening there now.

Here is the basic data about the Great Wall for your reference that we had in 2016.We would have the much larger Great Wall area for all our runners in 2018.

There new course would be a little bit easier than the course we use in the past two years.However,it is best that if you aim to run the over 15,000 stairs on the Great Wall during your training,that would be best!This stairs is for the full marathoners.For the half marathon runners,you need to train to run at least 7,500 stairs.

It seems that quite a lot runners would like to bring your family/friends to come to cheer for you,and the registration fee for them,spectators.each is USD125.00.You can do this any time from now till April 15,2018 for your family members or friends.

If you have anything unclear or/and need us to do anything for you,please feel free to let us know any time,we would do our best for you.Thank you very much again for your great support to the Great Wall of China Marathon(GWCM) from all our hearts!
