The Great Wall Marathon was founded in 1999 and is our oldest race. Arranged by Albatros Adventure, a brand owned by Albatros Travel, this Adventure Marathon is our most well-known. From around 300 runners in the beginning to 2,500 runners from over 60 nations today, the race has grown in recognition and is widely considered one of the most difficult foot races in the world.
The event consists of a full marathon, a half marathon and an 8.5km Fun Run. The race takes place in the rural surroundings of Huangyaguan in the Tianjin Province of China, a few hours outside of Beijing.
