The Shape of the New Course of the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1st,2018(Mar.8,2018)

On March 5,2018,the tunnel near the Great Wall that all the world runners would run for the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1st,2018 was open.This is the tunnel for the express way of Beijing Winter Olympic 2022.

So we can say that we would use two country roads as part of the total 42K and 21K course.One is 5K in one way,and another is 2K in one way,totally,we would have the 14km new course based on the original Great Wall course.

The full marathoners would run this 14k extending new course,the half marathoners would run the 7k extending new course.

They are flat roads almost with the same elevation.The elevation of the original full and half marathon turning points is 621 metres above the seas level,now the elevation of the new turning points of the full and half marathon courses on the two roads are 613 metres and 617 metres above the seas levels respectively.

The two new extending roads on the course map would bring the whole world runners the completely new looks,one is the very quiet and very remote Chinese countryside,another is that you would see the extremely high-rapid development of China today.The contract is amazingly striking!

The construction is still going on,and it would be completed by the end of this year,so come to run and see how the surrounding of the Great Wall in northwest Beijing changes here because of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games 2022.

For the 5K runners,you would not see this,the 5K course is still the same as last year,and for the 10K runners,you would be see the construction site this year,and only the 10K runners would have the FINISH point different from 5K,Half and Full marathoners.

It is expected that we would release the new course map of the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon 2018 around Wednesday next week.

Here is the info about the original course:
