Calling all marathon runners and running enthusiasts!
We have a variety of marathon event distances that are proved to be challenging, yet rewarding races along the Great Wall of China!
Located in the small harbor town of Qinhuangdao by the Sea, nearly 300 km (186 miles) east of Beijing, the Great Wall at Shanghaiguan is one of the most ancient and essential wonders of the world. Since the 14th Century, it has held a paramount frontier defense and protected the central plain.
The 7th annual international Shanhaiguan Great Wall Trail Race is a well-organized endurance event tailored to athletes and runners from around the world. Participants are granted plenty of support to run the challenging race courses along the historic Great Wall of China. This gives runners a one-of-a-kind adventure running experience to check off your bucket list!
