5,164 steps in history

Deemed one of the toughest marathons in the world by other runners, The Great Wall Marathon (est. 1999) is also one of the most beautiful and extraordinary races.

The event takes place in the picturesque and rural surroundings of Huangyaguan in Tianjin Province, China and offers three distances - marathon, half-marathon and 8.5km/5.5mi Fun Race. 

This race is more than the average running challenge with steep ascents and descents, not to mention the 5,164 steps that marathoners conquer by crossing the Great Wall twice! Half-marathoners and Fun Run participants will cross the wall once.

The courses showcase the Great Wall of China, typical Chinese villages and the countryside with supportive villagers lining the route. The variation offers a well-deserved break from focusing on the wall's many steps!

Entry includes a multi-day tour package offering accommodation, transportation and sightseeing in and around Beijing.

Capacity is limited to 2,500 participants and a wave system is utilized to prevent congestion and ensure a more personal experience on the Great Wall.

Join us and many other running-minded spirits from around the world to conquer the Great Wall of China!

Registration closes March 10, 2017.
