Answer the Questions from an
Expat in China about the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019(Feb.24,2019)
Mr.Vincent Priout has
recently registered the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019 via
one of our best cooperators ACTIVE.COM,one of the excellent world
marathon registration platforms.
Mr.Vincent Priout in
Shanghai China registered not only for himself for the half
marathon,he also registered a spectator coming together with him.
He wrote to ask the
following questions,which we think would be what most other runners
care,so here is our reply for Mr.Vincent Priout and for all the
world runners to the 18th Great wall of China Marathon 2019.
1.Where would be the
meeting point and at what time?
Unlike the past years,we
would use 5-star Beijing Friendship Hotel as the meeting point.
It is not far away from the
Shenzhou(Beijing)International Hotel that we used,they all on the
same street in Beijing.Zhongguancun Nandajie.The new one address is
No.1 and the previous is No.35.
And the runners can come to
this hotel to get your race bags(including the race bibs) from 9AM
till 6PM on April 30,2019,and we would have our staff working at the
lobby directing all the runners,and our working group would be
living in this hotel from April 28,2019.

5-star Beijing Friendship Hotel is here:

2.I understand that a bus
is arranged,but could I get there if I have a private car and
It is not just one
bus,buses for all the runners and spectators would depart the
Beijing Friendship Hotel at 5:30AM on May 1st,2019 for the Great
Wall.And the 18th Great Wall of China Marathon 2019 on the Great
Wall would start at 7:30AM.
Yes,some runners working in
China would like to drive their own cars over there,but we know that
a few runners really missed to get to the STARTING POINT,and failed
to run the race.If you make a mistake for the turning in one
place,you would have to drive another 30 or 50KM more,and after the
6:30AM,there would be traffic jam on the express way.And very
possible you would be stuck on the express way for about one or two
For the runners who
register via ACTIVE.COM,you would immedately receive the
Comformation Letter when you finish paying there.For the runners who
use Paypal or Wechat or Alipay,you would receive the Comfirmation
Letter in about one to 6 hours after your payment.And here is the
At 5PM on Monday February
25,2019,we would send the list of the runners who need us to reserve
the Beijing Friendship Hotel to the hotel.
We would be ready to update
the social media daily from 9AM New York Time on Monday February
25,2019. Please visit the social
media for more update info,too.
