Step your running goals up a notch with this incredible, yet challenging, marathon course along the Great Wall of China (Full, Half or 10km). Warm up in Beijing before heading to the Great Wall for the big run - the only Chinese-supported marathon in the country. This ain’t your average track; runners will navigate rough paths, sloping trails and narrow steps, so you’ll need to be fit and alert. That said, runners have the option to sign up for a full, half and ten-kilometre course, so there's something for most fitness levels. Recover with a week of travel around Northern China, taking in the Forbidden City, Tian’anmen Square, Xi’an’s famous Terracotta Warriors and stylish Shanghai. On your marks, get set, GO!
