The Progress of the 19th Great
Wall of China Marathon 2020(February 10,2020)
As Feb.10 is the day that most Chinese people go back to work after
more than two-week long Chinese Calendar New Year Season 2020.
It is also the past two weeks that the coronavirus became the top
news of all the world media.
We actually monitor the situation in Wuhan and in China very closely
every day.and the from the greatest measures the Chinese government
have being taken and the life of Chinese people and the daily
data,the Febuary 4 is the day the coronavirus-control first starts
in effect.Today US President predicates the virus would be end in
April.For us,we are much more optimistic about this.
We have the experience for such situation in 2003,and the experience
is what 99% of the marathon organizers in China have never faced.And
from 2018 up till January 2020,we have been investing the
environmental contruction of the Great Wall for the Great Wall of
China Marathon(GWCM),and we even have more than one great walls to
use for all our runners in case.
So for our registered runners,please keep on your regular
training.If you registered the full marathon,please prepare to run
as long as over 38KM distance on the Great Wall.For the half

distance on the Great Wall,and for the 10K runners,please get in
mind that your distance on the Great Wall is 9KM and for the 5KM
