What others thought

Beautiful, painful, and difficult. The most brutal race I have ever run. Loved it!

Michael Olsen,
2014 Great Wall Marathon finisher

The actually marathon was awesome inspiring. It was immense in every way. Although in pain on the way round,I found myself looking around and smiling. Ithe was unbelievable something in which words cannot describe.

RunMacca,
2016 Great Wall Marathon finisher

The race was awesome and definitely more difficult and challenging than I had thought. I loved being on the wall as well as running through the rural villages.
