Great Wall Marathon

Since its inception in 1999, the Great Wall Marathon has become revered as one of the world's most challenging marathons.

Run the most challenging marathon of your life along one of mankind's greatest monuments. Since the inaugural Great Wall Marathon in 1999, the field has grown steadily to a soldout event with 2,500 runners from over 60 nations in the 2014 edition. The Great Wall Marathon event offers three distances: a marathon, half marathon and a 8.5km Fun Run.

"Beautiful, painful, and difficult. The most brutal race I have ever run. Loved it!"
Michael Olsen, Great Wall Marathon finisher
