The Info about the Great Wall of
China Marathon 2018-Autumn(July
From the feedback of the
world runners in the past years,we feel that some runners like to
run the most difficult marathon in China that we have been having on
May 1st on the Great Wall in the past 17 years,but from recent two
years,some runners prefer to run the Great Wall of China Marathon
not that so difficult.
Therefore from 2018,we did
some change for the course at the 17th Great Wall of China Marathon
on May 1st,2018,after the race,we got the clear idea that we would
remain the Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1st still the most
difficult one in China,while we would make the course of the Great
Wall of China Marathon 2018-Autumn less difficult.
Here is some new data about
the new venue, Great Wall that we would use in this Autumn.
Runners would run the Great
Wall with almost no tourist,it is completely original,and the
Great Wall is mostly hidden in the green trees,that is the reason
that you cannot see it from the Google and you cannot read any info
about this GreWall from any Chinese books and maps,and the distance
the world runners would run on this wall would not be as long as
what we have on May 1st,and it would take about one hour from the
trail road to the Great Wall on the mountain,and this trail road is
regarded as the most challenge one,and we would have more working
staff on this trail road to give you the direction and give you the
Camelbak is necessary for
all the runners.
And besides the Great
Wall,we would run in a mountain path the longest distance,and there
is no people and not any vehicles on this path,and this path is
extremely clean,it is some what as the path of the Yellow
Stone Park,the first and the largest national park in USA.
The elevation of the START
of the Great Wall of China Marathon 2018-Autumn is 790
metres(2591.86ft) and the highest point on the Great Wall is 1121
metres(3677.82ft).We would release the course map some time in the
end of August or early September 2018,together with other detail
There are simple hotel
rooms near the START at the Great Wall,it is 50USD for a single room
or a double room.If you need the hotel room,please let us know,we
would help to reserve the hotel room(s) for you now.
