exclusive reasons that make it an incomparable event.
1. Ensuring Sufficient Rest for All Runners the Night Before the
Stay at our designated 4-star hotel located in downtown Beijing, and
our luxury limousine buses will transport you to the starting line
of the Great Wall of China Marathon on May 1st, 2024. The convenient
highway not only connects the Great Wall for our participants in
northwest Beijing but also provides easy access to the venues of the
Beijing Winter Olympic Games 2022, all within a 20 to 30-minute
drive. Departure from the official hotel is scheduled for 5:30 AM on
May 1st, 2024, ensuring ample time for a good night's sleep.
We have arranged comfortable twin rooms at the official hotel for
all registered runners. If you wish to share a room with another
participant, the cost is 375CNY per night.
2. Assistance with Chinese Visa Application and Extension in
Currently, runners from 11 countries can enter China without a
Chinese Visa. Additionally, participants from 46 countries can enjoy
a 144-hour transit visa (visa-free) in Beijing, which can be
obtained upon arrival at Beijing airports or Beijing West Railway
Station. If your Chinese visa is nearing expiration, we can assist
you in extending it in Beijing from May 2nd to May 5th, 2024. This
will allow you to explore more of China after the marathon.

29th. Our commitment to hosting this marathon twice a year remains
unwavering, with races always taking place on May 1st (Spring) and
