Answer a runner's Questions about the Great Wall of
China Marathon 2018-Autumn(July
I'm from the United States. I planned a trip for 10 days to Beijing
and Japan. During my stay in Beijing, I have registered to run the
Great Wall Half Marathon. Is there a place for me to meet a bus in
Beijing that will take me to the starting line or does the Start
Line have an address that I can give to my driver? Will my husband
be able to take the same bus as a spectator?
What time does the run start? What will the weather be like? My tour
group will be touring the Great Wall that day. Is the run in the
same place where the tourist go?
I hope to hear from you soon. I'd like to make arrangements as soon
Good evening.We are very happy to receive your message,thank you
The buses with all the runners would depart the 4-star
Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel in the early morning of October
21,every year,normally our buses would depart the hotel at 5:30AM
Beijing Time,in September,we would announce the exact bus departure
time,but would not be later than 5:30AM. And the round bus
transportation between the hotel and the great Wall is included.
The hotel address is:
No.31 Zhongguancun Nandajie,
Haidian Disctrict Beijing 10081 P.R.China
We also help our runners to reserve the hotel room every year.it is
106USD for a standrad room with two beds,and the runners can check
in even from around 8AM and check out before 2PM,and the brekfast is
included,and this is what you can not get from anywhere else.If you
need,please let us know and we keep the room for you and your
And also your husband is regarded as spectator,the registration fee
for the epectator is 50% off from the normal registration fee,so it
is 125USD/per person.So all spectators could enjoy everything the
same as the runners,except running.
As for the payment for spectator,you can pay to our paypal account
The race would start normally at 7:30AM,but for this year,the race
course is not as the difficult as the course at the 17th Great Wall
of China Marathon on May 1st,2018 at another Great Wall in
Beijing,and we would also announce the exact start time in early
The temperature is around 15 degree centigrade (59F),
and the temperature in the evening is around 9 degree centigrade
The Great Wall is the first time that have the Great Wall of China
Marathon for this Autumn,it is not the Great Wall that you would
read in any tourist book.There are only around 7 tourists there
If you would be possible to stay 3-night at the official 4-star
hotel and would like us to pick you and your husband from the
airport to the hotel,we also suggest you to consider our option
3,the detail is here:
So the extra fee for you is 498-250=248USD
and the fee for your husband is 125+248=373USD
We would like to listen to your decision and reply.
Thank you very much from all our hearts again and Best Regards to
