The Key-Point Report about the 17th
Great Wall of China Marathon 2018(May 21,2018)
Dear all world runners,
Thank you very much from
all corners of the world to Beijing for the 17th Great Wall of China
Marathon on May 1st,2018.
We would forever remember
all your power and sweat along the course.
The transportation fee
between the official Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel and the
Great Wall is included in the 250USD registration fee.
From this year,we paid the
high attention to the one-to-one service in the way of
transportation.That is we picked up our runners between the Beijing
Capital International Airports and the official hotel.We have very
successfully accepted 98% runners.
For the runners who
reserved the taxi from the Finish line on the race day to the
airport directly,this work has been 100% perfectly completed.
At the Great Wall of China
Marathon 2018-Autumn and the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon
2019,our aim is to 100%perfectly realize this one-to-one
The Course Usage:
This year,we also for the
first time successfully added the 7KM Great Wall Valley,this was
almost impossible mission because of we would pass a key checkpoint between Beijing and Hebei Province and a
forest protection zone,etc.This has never never been an easy thing that
you can see from just a few sentences here.In the future,we might make a
three-hour audio program introducing the story behind about the
hardship that we worked and overcame for all our world runners.
The Heavy Security Check:
The Great Wall we used on
May 1st,2018 is in sports venue of the Beijing Winter Olympic
2022.Unlike any years before,we faced the extremely and unexpected
heavy security check and some traffic jam,so,for example,our
volunteers could not timely reached their service points,so that
over 20 fastest world runners ran more kilometres,and so for the
first time in the 17 years,our results appeared 5K+,10K+,Half
Marathon+,and only one full marathon runner ran more than 200 metres
We finally had not accepted
the distance change requirement by our runners.If a full marathoner
decided to change his full into 10K,this would greatly affect the
results of the other runners,so we keep the PLUS +.Please understand
Our Sweet Great Wall Home for
For the over 20 runners who
ran the 5K+,10K+,Half Marathon+,including this full marathoner(name
unidentified at this moment),you all won one-night camping on the
Great Wall free of charge,we provide the tent(s) and our guide(s)
for you freely,also two meals,you can choose breakfast,lunch or
dinner at our sweet and warm home at the foot of the Great Wall.
This service is valid every
day for you for a whole year,and this service is open for you from
July 28,2018 till July 28,2019.
You can inform us your
arrival even 24 hours before you come,so that we make the
arrangement for you.
Also thank all the world
