The Great Wall Marathon, ½ Marathon and 8.5K Fun Run will celebrate its 21st anniversary on May 16, 2020.
We hope you choose to be part of this fantastic event! Marlin Travel is the official Canadian Travel Agent Partner for this event and has sent hundreds of runners to China.
We offer an Early Booking Discount of $50.00 USD per person for Entry/Supporter applications received by December 1, 2019.
This demanding course covers over 3,700 steps on the Great Wall at Huangyaguan and includes steep up and down portions. Over 6 kilometers of the full marathon is run on the Wall. All other races are on the wall for about 3km. Most of the course runs through the small farmlands and villages of Tianjin Province. Many runners/walkers opt to carry a camera during their event and not be concerned about their finish time. For many, this is an experience of a lifetime, not a race
Attached are PDF files containing information on the Great Wall Marathon Events.
