Unlike the traditional Marathon races that take place in the cities’ streets whenever it are held, the Great Wall Marathon is held along the Great Wall of China.

This is a difficult race that requires participants in excellent shape as the great physical effort is a result from running and climbing thousands of steep stairs of the Great Wall.

The marvelous views on the way and the atmosphere of the challenged race, promise an unusual sportive experience.

China background and overview
For centuries China stood as a leading civilization, outpacing the rest of the world in the arts and sciences, but in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the country was beset by civil unrest, major famines, military defeats, and foreign occupation. After World War II, the Communists under MAO Zedong established an autocratic socialist system that, while ensuring China's sovereignty, imposed strict controls over everyday life and cost the lives of tens of millions of people. After 1978, his successor DENG Xiaoping and other leaders focused on market-oriented economic development and by 2000 output had quadrupled. For much of the population, living standards have improved dramatically and the room for personal choice has expanded, yet political controls remain tight.
