If you are looking for spectacular experiences, you should definitely add The Great Wall Marathon East of Beijiing in China to your list of potential marathon places.
The route is more challenging than ordinary marathons (if marathons can be ordinary at all?). You have to conquer more than 5.000 steps, as you move towards your goal. But the surroundings are spectacular, and to participate in Great Wall Marathon is definitely an extraordinary experience.
According to the organizers 25% of the participants are "FirstTimers". So even though the route is absolutely challenging, you should not be afraid to choose The Great Wall Marathon as a "FirstTimer". Just make sure to be prepared.
The Great Wall Marathon can be divided into different stages, and it requires a lot of planning, because every new stage requires a different strategy.
The time limit is 8 hours with a 6 hour cut-off at 32 kilometer.
At Boost Marathon we work hard to ensure correct information, but please check all facts with the organizers before making any arrangements.
