Extremely Important: The 5-star Beijing Friendship Hotel for the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019(December 23, 2018)

Due to the renovation of the 4-star Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel that we have been using as the reception center for all our world runners in the past years,and the hotel would not be open until June 2019,so we have finally decided to use the 5-star BEIJING FRIENDSHIP HOTEL as the official hotel for the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019.

For the runners who have already got the free hotel rooms during our promotion period and for the runners who have purchased the Option 3 of the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019,you all would be coming to live at the 5-star BEIJING FRIENDSHIP HOTEL.You would not be charged for any extra money for this upgrading,but the breakfast would not be included in the Option 3 any more,we expect you all understand this.

We would not change any information about Option 3 at ACTIVE.COM when you do the registration there,you would still see the 4-star Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel there,but we keep the rooms for you at the 5-star BEIJING FRIENDSHIP HOTEL.This is only for the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019,for the runners who register the Great Wall of China Marathon 2019-Autumn and the Great Wall of China Marathon 2020,we would still use the 4-star Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel.

BEIJING FRIENDSHIP HOTEL was built in 1954,and it has more than 1,900 hotel rooms,and the total area of the hotel is 335,000 square metres,and the hotel have more than 20 different restaurants,and it can cater 3,000 people to have the meals together.

If any runners of the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019 would like to ask us to book the hotel rooms for you,the favourite price we offer to you is still 106USD a night for a standard room or for a single room.


All the runners would come to this hotel to get the race packets on April 30,2019,and our buses with all the runners to the Great Wall would depart the hotel at 5:30AM on May 1st,2019.

The runners who have already registered the Roof of the World Marathon 2019 should come to meet us on April 30 or the evening of May 1st,2019,and we would also depart the hotel together in the morning of May 2nd,2019 and fly from Beijing to Lhasa Tibet.
