The Easy-to-Understand Course Map of the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1st,2018(Mar.14,2018)
Because the Great Wall we
use for the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon 2018 is in northwest
Beijing,and the Great Wall is on the Beijing Winter Olympic 2022
venue zone,and the construction is undergoing there very rapidly,so
we have not been able to reveal the new course until March 2018.
What you can see here today now is a directly-cropped map from
Google Map,today we give the direct introdction,it would be easy for
you to understand how you choose to run the Full,Half,10K and 5K
during the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon 2018.
If you have run the Grea
Wall of China marathon on May 1st,2016 and 2017,you would
immediately understand that the course we used is from A to C.
And for this year,we add
the new course from C to E and C to F.
Here is the detail
A-C : 7K
C-E : 5K
C-F : 2K
A is the START and FINISH
of Full,Half and 5K.
G is the 2.5K turning point
on the Great Wall.The corse is totally the same as in 2016 and 2017.
This is the new course this
year.And the FINISH would be at C,which was the turning point of the
half and full marathoners in 2017. Our mini-bus would take our 10K
runners back to the FINISH line of full,half and 5K.
Half Marathon Course:
From C to D,it is 3.5K. The
half marathon runners would have a very pleasant time on the newly
So you can see,the new
course would bring the full marathon runners to run the extending
14K on the flat country roads, and only the full marathon runners
would have the very contrasting impression about the very quiet
Chinese countryside and the rapidly developing China besides the
breathtaking Great Wall.

for the luggages drop,showers,massages,coffee,places to take buses
back to downtown Beijing,etc.

the elevation map here,too,together with the info about the exact
stairs/steps that our runners would run on the wall.
